As many of you may know, I have been raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support for the past few years, since I was diagnosed with womb cancer in Dec 2009.
I love beads - especially handmade glass beads and have been making and selling pieces of handmade jewellery and accessories to help raise funds through my FB pages, buteartism and Angels of Hope and also here on the island.
Thanks to some lovely people who have bought items and also donated items to some of my online auctions, since 2010 I have raised over £1,200 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Over the past few years I have also been raising funds for a womb cancer research project Fundraising for womb cancer research and last year I started raising funds for AMMF - which is the UK's only cholangiocarcinoma (or bile duct cancer) charity. This is the cancer that my Mom died from in Dec. 2013.
Since FB started messing around with post reach it has become increasingly difficult for posts to be seen and therefore I have been unable to sell as many items in 2014. I have almost 700 likers on the main buteartism page and yet some posts only reach 20 or 30 people!!
So I've made the decision to close down the Angels for Hope page and also to take down my items that are for sale on the buteartism page, although I will still continue to hold online auctions there occasionally.
The first will be in March and will be for AMMF. Then in September there will be another auction to help raise funds for a womb cancer project.
In between, there will be small flash sales for various good causes and I will continue to donate items to other auctions being run to help various other good causes.
I hope you will check out the pages and maybe even think about joining in the various auctions.
I know I've said before that I would try and keep the blog updated regularly and I will try, I promise. :-)
