Charity of the month
British Lung Foundation
Thank you to The Media Planet and The British Lung Foundation for letting me share the story of my Aunt’s battle with lung cancer. As the headline so aptly states, a chance to turn tragedy into inspiration. Please take some time to read the full article and learn a little more about the wonderful work of the The British Lung Foundation. They are also launching a new campaign for The BLF Big Breakfast campaign which is about getting together all your family, friends, work colleagues and holding a BLF Big breakfast. You can invite them round to your home or hold it at work and getting people to donate for the breakfast you cook for them. Or hold a pot luck – breakfast style, get everyone to bring a dish and cater to your group in return for a donation! It’s such a simple yet fun activity to get everyone to share the most important meal of the day and do something good! All the money raised will help bring more awareness and support the great causes in the fight against lung cancer. If you go to the website, I have shared a breakfast recipe for you all to enjoy on the day!
Thank you for taking the time to support this worthy cause.
Love, Ching x
I am a strong supporter of the charity, Tzu-Chi.
Tzu Chi Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 1966 by Dharma Master Cheng Yen in the impoverished east coast of Taiwan. The Foundation has been contributing to better social and community services, medical care, education and humanism in Taiwan for over 45 years. Master Cheng Yen firmly believes that suffering in this world is caused by material deprivation and spiritual poverty. She felt that "lack of love for others" has been the root of many problems in this world. "To save the world, we must begin by transforming human hearts."

Mothers' Bridge of Love (MBL) - Help Chinese Children
MBL is striving to introduce an authentic China to the West and to
disseminate information to people in China about the lives of adopted
Chinese children and of overseas Chinese in the West. Through this
bridge it is hoped that both cultures will be better able to understand
one another. MBL was founded by Xinran, the Chinese authoress of The
Good Women of China' and more recently, 'Sky Burial'. It is a registered
charity and would welcome support or donations.
