General thoughts and wittering about all sorts of things

Spreading the word

on August 20, 2012

How exciting – and utterly unexpected – to come across this as I was scrolling through Facebook this morning:

It has made my day to see my blog shared, not to mention praised as “wonderful”!

And while I’m on the subject of sharing, can I draw your attention to the Lemonade Makin’ Mama blog today? There you can read about her idea to get all her readers and followers to donate towards the Give a Dam for Africa by Blood: Water Mission. She’s worked out that she has enough followers to pay for a dam between them, by donating around $25 each (she’s aware that not everyone can afford that amount but she’s hoping that enough will). I think it’s a wonderful way of using her influence and her community of readers around the world to make a real difference for something she cares about. I’ve donated and this is my way of recognising her efforts by flagging them up to others.
