29 Days - one footstep joins another

Well, I'd like to say we were wizzing towards the target, but we're not. It's a slow ol' plod, one step at the time. But, you know what? It's a really nice walk - some steps are little, and some bigger, but each is taken in the right direction. And each is a contribution towards reaching the goal.

Today, I checked out the main staffroom sponsor form - there was another donor today (I've been told by quite a few people they keep forgetting! Still, there's time left...) - Thanks Beryl!

Then I checked out the Sports Hall, and there was a couple of donors there - thanks Paige and Andrea, and whoever put the change in the box (mind you, I haven't checked it wasn't buttons yet! :-))
And then, more thanks to Ann, David and Roy in the butchers, Wadhurst - I go there regularly, and minced them into submission to sign! :-)

We've still got quite a way to go, so keep on plodding, guys!

Oh, and if you happen to have a business in the local villages, one of the kids at school rightly pointed out I should be asking you too - so please have a bucket full of gold ready for my arrival (failing that, so paper notes always go down well) - it's for a good cause! :-)

    One step at a time indeed
    It seems there are so many causes

    We not only live in a time where the tv and shops are after our money - buy this, buy that

    did somebody forget to tell the government & businesses, that if people don't have disposable income they cannot carry on consuming - everyone is already maxed out on credit...

    And then to top it all we have this charity or that charity to donate to to make up for the shortfalls in health care, when we are already giving the NHS $90 billion. Does make one wonder where the money goes.

    On a happier note, ALL THE BEST
    There is something truly altruistic and uplifting (edifying)about raising funds for charity

    Just the plodding on can be slow
    One Step at A Time - is the only way to go, and who knows sometimes in leaps and bounds.
    Here's looking at yah
    Here's smiling at yah!

    You're absolutely right, Quasar9! In theory, charities shouldn't have to exsist. The government should be contributing to research of illnesses; and for rescuing children, animals, homeless people etc; and for saving numerous animals, forests etc; for emergency funds for disasters, third world feeding or developement...

    Truth is, the reality of government means bad organisation, wasted funds, poor management...

    And the government could take from the wages a certain sum every month for such things, but people like to choose where their money is going. Though, I guess, if the choice was taken away, then the money could be more evenly spread out.

    Then again, the way it is, though not ideal and far from perfect, does ensure that the money is going to the areas more people care about, and not secreted into funds for war machinery, bombs & such like....

    I, myself, give a small amount a month to several charities which I care about - heart, cancer, Alzheimer's, a child in South America (how can you stop this when you're in the red, knowing they have even less!?!) - and then feel mean turning down people collecting in the street! So, I know what you're saying...

    Still, this is for a charity worth backing - it might be them that finds something which can relieve the suffering in so many lives! Who knows...
