Fundraising with TinyMe 1

You know I am doing that crazy skydive thingyamybob soon? Yes? Well I have come across a marvellous fundraising idea. TinyMe (who I’ve mentioned here before) are being very kind and saying they will donate 20% of sales mentioning Team Matilda Mae to the skydive JustGiving page. TinyMe is great for personalised labels for school uniform, gym bags, lunch bags, and even books and puzzles.

#MMraffle The big skydive fundraiser raffle 58

Alrighty then, here goes. If you are unaware I am doing a charity skydive in memory of Matilda Mae you must be a new reader here, so Hiya and welcome. I mention it quite often on Twitter and Facebook that I am trying hard to fundraise. Sadly my donations haven’t taken off yet, so I’m trying something else.   UPDATED – I have changed the donatition link in the Rafflecopter form to support Claire as I have reached the £400 I needed to reach. Sadly Claire hasn’t yet. All entries made via my donation page are still valid of course. The only change is where future donations end up. Also the lovely Lucy has a super-fast last minute raffle going on, same principal, make a small donation and you could win something. We are all working as a team to try to help each other raise money. A MAHOOOOSIVE charity raffle. […]

WIN (ended)- Advertising space to help charity 16

OK, this isn’t likely to be something all my readers would be interested in but I am offering you the chance to win advertising space on my blog. Bloggers, small businesses’ and charities are my ideal advertisers. Why am I doing this? Feel free to have a read around my blog, and you’ll see I did this last year. I jumped from a plane last year for Matilda Mae, the late daughter of a friend. She was 9 months old and died from SIDS, she went to bed and never woke up. Reading about it got to me, I had to help, I had to do something. What can I do that is big enough? That can change things? That will help someone? That will mean something? So we skydived – jumping from the clouds, as near to heaven as you can be. I am terrified of heights, I properly cried – and […]


Adorable hare earrings.

Win (ended)- A beautiful pair of hare earrings from LaJewellery 24

When I saw that La Jewellery wanted to work with eco-conscious bloggers to run a competition for their readers I hopped jumped at the chance. La Jewellery make lovely items with good ethics and a consideration for the environment. What’s not to like?! Technically this lovely window display is full of hares, but I’m thinking bunnies – Easter Bunnies, and I am hoping the winner replies in two shakes of a rabbit’s tail (quick) so that the lovely prize will pop through your letter box before Easter. Lets face it, lovely jewellery is going to last longer than a chocolate egg or bunny.

WIN (ended) Personalised Cufflinks, Perfect Crimbo Gift 60

Hello readers, This competition has ended, and the winner is announced below. Today I’m offering you a chance to win. I know it’s not December yet, but I’m trying to get some presents sorted early. I was offered the chance to have a set of these cufflinks from RING to review but instead I am offering them to you, my readers. They are worth around £30 and would be a lovely gift for a male relative. Perhaps add a photo of the family, or of their pet, maybe their initials? You can have them made in gold or silver coloured metal, I prefer the silver colour myself. Classic, yet contemporary and goes with almost any colour, whereas the gold tones can clash with some fabrics. They are proud of the celeb feedback they’ve received, a couple are footballers, not that I “do” football. It’s still all about the Rugby and […]
