I used to send postcards when I was at university to the wrongly imprisoned, political prisoners, or those mistreated by their Governments. Today I use my 5 different email addresses to sign the online petitions and I’d encourage you to do the – they’re the most crucial emails you & I will ever send.
British Red Cross – Caring for people in crisis
I make regular donations to The British Red Cross as I love their advert showing that UK crisis are just as important as overseas ones
Barnardo’s – Caring for Children for over 150 years
I loved their Autumn 2016 advert highlighting the immense talents of young people, despite their upbringing. I simply had to sponsor this charity who ensure 91p in every £1 goes directly to the children who need it
Center Point – Sponsor of rooms for young homeless Londoners
I sponsored 3 rooms per month for young homeless Londoners, giving them the safety & practical support they need to turn their lives around, for just £12 per room
Doreen Virtues Animal Rescue Ranch, Hawaii
I became vegan in 2016 as a direct result of seeing the beautiful rescued animals (especially red calf’s like above) that Doreen Virtue & Michael save from slaughter each week.With over 300 and counting at this dedicated rescue ranch, these animals will live a long and full life just as they were meant to, so I’m honoured to be a donor.
Friends of the Earth – protecting this beautiful earth, and all it’s inhabitants
I’ve been involved with Friends since my university days but only recently starting making regular donations (as part of my 2017 £10,000 Birthday donation). It’s been great to be active with their campaigns and know every email and every penny counts
Greenpeace – People who are passionate about protecting the Earth through positive action
I make regular donations to Greenpeace usually £1,500 per year, because humans, animals & tress can live together in harmony, if humans just stop, think and replenish what we use. I’m always delighted to be invited to private events, kept up to date on what’s happening in fact I closed a bank account specifically because of a Greenpeace notice of the banking group endorsing deforestation . . .and I told the bank exactly why I closed that account.
As an entrepreneur I never needed loans so I’m always happy to lend money to global entrepreneurs to achieve their goals. On the day I won £125 I saw an advert for lend with care and donated the final £15 needed for Abdul Rehman, 24, of Pakistan to reach the £195 he needed to build his hairdressing, barber shop, salon which is the only income for himself, his wife and his parents. I went on to fund Zeeham Aslam(to repair his taxi) & Imitaz Begum (jeans clothing business) with £75 given to me by Co Operative Group.
Mango Tree – Child Sponsorship in Goa
I sponsor two children so they get a valued education and it’s the best £15 per child I spend
Mind – putting mental frailty first
For me, there are few things more important than preserving & protecting this green and pleasant land, just as one of my hero’s Beatrix Potter did a century ago.
Oxfam – created in Oxford, to help the world
Royal British Legion
Royal Historical Palaces
Samaritans Purse – Gifts to needy children worldwide
Sight Savers – Restoring Sight to those who’d otherwise be blind
I love these adverts showing how amazing sight restoration is so I make both monthly and ad hoc donations to Sight Savers to give the precious gift of sight to those who’d otherwise be unnecessarily blind
SOS Children’s Villages
I donate as part of my Birthday £10,000 donation and would I recommend sponsoring a child for just £15 per month, you can even choose the country or continent you’d like them to be in. It’s amazing to see photos, videos and updates on exactly how effective your donation has been to these amazing children.
