Advent Calendar 19 - Text Santa...
Text Santa is such a great way to give to some important charities, an easy way to make a small difference. For a long time I tried to ignore TV fundraising because I didn't like having my faced rubbed in other people's misery so that I could be guilt-tripped into donating.
Then one day I realised that being guilt-tripped is a good thing. How else was I going to be forced to donate a little cash to people who need it far more than I do so that their lives can be improved.
I support a few of these events and charities now, not a lot but enough to ease my conscience and to make me feel that I am doing my bit, at least financially, to help others. This year I decided that any money I made from my deconstructed snowman baubles would go to Text Santa. I sold a few and that's where the money went.
So if you bought one thanks. You have helped make a difference.
