Welcome to my two new followers, Oh Pioneer and Beyond Astral Skies. Glad to have you aboard the Norfolk express!
I don't know about you but if I get pestered by charities I tend to run in the opposite direction. We always give to the poppy appeal and DB supports the Vulcan to the Sky project.
I normally don't make New Year resolutions but this year decided to make one. Every month, I will give to a charity of my choice, a one off donation. It will be by cheque and although they will know my name, they will not get my address.
Programmes that show some charities at work interest me greatly. Last year, I watched a programme on how some of our surgeons (plus those of other countries) donate their time freely to perform sight saving operations on people around the world. In honour of their dedication, this is my first chosen charity. A link to it can be found here, should you be interested.
I have already decided on the 12 I shall give to. They are close to my heart, and may or may not have been/are, relevant to loved ones. (this is a hint to not inundate me with your charities :0).
Judicious saving will enable me to do this. It is something I have thought about doing for years but never gotten around to. This is the year!
