I'm a bit lapsed at being a consistent giving. When I was salaried I had an Oxfam direct debit but as a freelancer you can't do the tax free bit its very complicated. So I have to remember to give and then submit for the tax peeps to give the tax bit depending on my income....
Normally Idon't mention charity or plug an effort as we've all got friends who do their bit which we support in our own way.
However, every Monday I go to swimming training and one guy there is swimming the channel. He's from Zimbabwe and he's doing the channel swim to raise money for people to eat. God damn it that gets to me every time. So I've put up a bag for auction on ebay to raise money for him. I thought a Chanel bag was fitting for a channel swim.
My friend who runs an ebay shop is doing it for me -Closet Encounters
and this is the link to the bag - bag link!
If you want to visit Graeme's blog about his swim (and please note this is a lot of effort and he's not poncing off to foreign lands to do it!) here's his blog link - Zimhippo and here's the charity bit www.justgiving.com/zimhippo
Please get people to bid!!
Thank you xx
