Every time I answer the phone or open the letter box, there is always another charity looking for help.
Even though they are all very worthy it is just not possible for me to help them all.
I do have a soft spot for charities that help children. I am blessed with two perfect daughters and I really feel for parents who are not so lucky.
The Cerebral Palsy League has come up with a novel way to support them, without having to find a big wad of cash in one go.
Spare change adds up!
Every few months my tin is picked up and a new one dropped off in it’s place. They mail me out a receipt that I can then use at tax time. Emptying my wallet of coins and putting them in this tin is easy to do and I am always amazed how much actually went in there each time.
Every 14 hours, a child in Australia is born with cerebral palsy, and affects the way the brain controls the body’s muscles. It results in speech, movement and posture difficulties. Cerebral palsy is not hereditory and all the causes are not yet known. At some stage in development injury to the brain occurs and it simply does not function normally. Research and support needs funding and with a ‘Friendship Tin’ you can help provide the Cerebral Palsy League with cash.
This is a great way to teach kids the concept of helping others less fortunate, by having them deposit the coins in to the tin and explaining to them why you are helping out.
You can have a tin at your home too! Just CLICK HERE (This post is not sponsored)
