Do you remember in November when I wrote about how I am sponsoring a little girl in Malawi called Gift through Action Aid? I write once a month to Gift and love everything about sponsoring her. I keep a photo of her next to my desk at work and think about her very often, wondering what she is up to and how she is getting on at school and what life must be like in a country that until a little while ago I knew very little about.
There are so many ways to help charities, and one of those is by highlighting a charity and their cause by word of mouth, or on Twitter, Facebook or on your own blog. I was so pleased to read on Twitter that Action Aid are holding a Bloggers Tea Party to get to know bloggers (who sponsor though Action Aid and those that don’t) and to highlight the work that Action Aid do and how we can help.
So, what are you doing on the 19th January? I am now taking a day off from work, I plan a little shopping and maybe an early lunch before heading into a part of London that I’ve never been to before. If you spot me with a map in one hand and a puzzled look on my face, please point me in the right direction!
Here are the details:
WHEN: 19 January 2012, from 1pm
WHERE: ActionAid London office, London EC1.
If you want to attend, space is obviously limited, register here. There’s also a small crèche facility, subject to numbers.
Action Aid will get back to you to confirm your place, in the meantime any questions tweet @ActionAidUK or connection via facebook.com/actionaiduk. You can also email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you there.
