Well I am already challenging my fears by skydiving despite not being able to climb up the ladder to my son’s bunk bed. I have a huge fear of needles. Huge. Doctors often give up on the idea of injections or if it’s essential I have actually been restrained to have blood tests. What’s more ridiculous than skydiving with vertigo? THIS Having “ink” when walking past a tattoo place frightens you is really daft. BUT as this is my third skydive I need a new idea. This idea might be totally stolen off of Mummy B who just got a red nose on her bum. And I mean it. So please share or tweet to folk you know that might sponsor me to do this. The donation link is JustGiving.com/JulieMM I would also do it for a company or any person willing to pass on a grand to The Lullaby […]
I cried and screamed last time, but I have signed up to do it again. Hayley didn’t even force me 😉 In August we will be skydiving for Matilda Mae, time may pass, but we have not forgotten. We will not let Tilda be forgotten. All money raised is going to the Lullaby Trust, as it did last year, and I truly hope our crazy fundraising has helped to save a little life or maybe a few? So today I opened a new JustGiving page, and am after your support, donations or even just your tweets? There is a team page, Team Matilda 2014. There is not much info yet on the pages, as we are being added to the team page one at a time as each member makes a new page. Bare with us, or pop back next week to see whose in? The lullaby trust try to prevent […]
I have uploaded a video for you all to giggle at. If you can lip read do not look too closely. 😉 If this video is not clear enough for you, you can watch it in HD here. I’m sorry, these video’s will not work on mobiles, I believe it is to do with it having Copyrighted music. Sorry folks!
#MMskydive might be over but I am still fundraising and my justgiving page is open until Christmas. So no problem if you are waiting for pay day to donate a pound or three? I paid £95 myself for a camera man to jump out next to me. This means I have 90 pictures, in HD no less, clearly documenting my fear, panic attack and well, terror and pain. If I get to £500 on my justgiving page I’ll share them. They are BAD! I’ve shared just 5 of them with the skydive team and they’ve been wetting themselves laughing.
Righty, I am thinking of ways to help with the skydive sponsorship for the Team Matilda Mae jump and I have a cunning plan. I offered advertising space on MRB to small companies in return for donations to my just giving page, but I have not yet had any takers. (If you are a blogger, or a business and this sounds tempting there is a link explaining it all on my left sidebar along with the Skydive badge) I’ve had an idea… What I am thinking is I try to source a few prizes to giveaway on MRB and I do an online raffle. So companies could donate a prize and I would link to the company’s website from my blog, MRB readers could enter to win prizes by making a donation on my just giving page, or by TextGiving by texting “JSKY99 £1” to 70070. (The minimum donations that are set by […]
Hello!I’ve had an idea to get fundraising for the #MMskydive. As the cute badge on my side bars tells you, I’m jumping from a plane in July for charity. I am doing this for the family of Matilda Mae, as their story really touched me. I’m actually scared of heights, confined spaces, strangers, wide open areas and lots of other phobias, so this was a pretty big thing for me to join in with. I will be high up, in a tiny plane, strapped to an instructor I do not know and surrounded by fellow bloggers, none of whom I’ve ever met in real life so are strangers still, and the place the instructor aims for will be a massive open space! It ticks lots of phobia boxes, but I’m determined I’m going to do this and I’m convincing myself it is good to force yourself to do crazy things […]
