So there and then I took the decision that I needed to get people to donate money to the charity of my choice, instead of buying things for me. This blog was the perfect vehicle for doing so. As of yesterday, it now contains a link to my page on Justgiving.com.
I thought about the charities I could benefit and it didn't take long to decide to back Oxfam. After all they started locally in Oxford, which isn't far from West Berks. Their mission is simple:
- Saving lives by responding swiftly to provide aid, support and protection during emergencies
- Developing programmes and solutions that empower people to work their way out of poverty
- Campaigning to achieve lasting change
