Charity of the month
MACMILLAN CANCER CARE
Macmillan cancer support is a truly wonderful charity that helps both victims and their families when someone is diagnosed with cancer. They advise people on what to expect and give practical advice and support. This can be anything from help with money worries and advice about work, to someone who’ll listen if you just want to talk.
To find out more about this wonderful charity please go to http://www.macmillan.org.uk/
In May, I will be hosting a ‘Macmillan Night In’. Just invite all your friends round, and ask them to donate whatever they can to Macmillan Cancer Support. They can donate beforehand via your event page, or contribute on the night. The website http://nightin.macmillan.org.uk/what-is-night-in/ has plenty of ideas on how to make your ‘Night In’ extra special. If you are looking to cook a meal for all your mates, there are many recipes to choose from, including one that I have donated. Don’t forget to stock up on some wine too!
I hope you all enjoy yourselves!

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.
