Every little helps!

I've posted before about fundraising auctions that held on Facebook and I myself have no worries about supporting them. I have held a couple myself and they have both been well supported.
I am running another soon for a German Shepherd Rescue centre that is run by a lovely lady called Marcia. You can find more about their work here

I also run a regular auction of crafting goodies that I no longer need to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer care. The last 2 raised in excess of £100 and I shall be handing over a cheque this Tuesday.

Another charity that I regularly support is Jades Smiles - run by a very brave young lady called Jade Swain. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jades-Smiles/108058812609330?sk=info She has au auction running at the moment to which I have donated a few pieces.

A new one that I've just found is this one
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Help-A-Hedgehog-Hospital/194675883882015 and again I've donated a couple if items. They have some lovely items up for grabs so I shall definetly be bidding on a few items there!!

The last one I want to mention today is one that I simply couldn't not offer to help out.

Little Lillie-Mai Jackson contracted meningitis at 14 weeks old. Despite being given just hours to live at one point, she pulled through. Unfortunately though, she lost both legs and an arm in the process. She will need many prosthetic limbs as she grows up, and they are very expensive.

Again, some wonderful people have donated some lovely items to this auction so I shall be there when the auction starts to support them.

I know that times are hard and sometimes it can be difficult for crafters to donate items to all these charities but even sharing a link on FB helps, so next time one pops up in your list of posts please, please repost it and share the link love.

Take care.
