Charity of the month
British Lung Foundation
I recently heard the touching story of Andy J Steele who was raising funds for the BLF with a children's book dedicated in his dad's memory. 'The Last Hoobaloo' is a simple story of a red balloon drifting across the countryside and passing characters who want to befriend it along its journey. 100% of the profits are going to the British Lung Foundation, a wonderful charity that leads the fight against lung disease. To learn more about the book and where to buy it then click on the link below. What a lovely way to support the charity!
The British Heart Foundation does an amazing job educating people on the disease, the causes and signs to look out for. They also campaign tirelessly on getting better services and care for people with lung conditions. It currently effects around 12 million people across the UK alone and they can't continue their crucial work without our support.
If you would like to know more about the charity and ways in which you can help then please look at their website www.blf.org.uk or follow them on twitter @lunguk

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.
