Not gonna lie, I usually get really annoyed about these “campaigns.” Like “ooh change your Facebook status to the colour of your pants and you will find the cure for blindness.” blah blah blah. There’s no point to these things if no one knows what you are doing and if you’re not actually donating any money/ raising some sort of awareness.
That said, I did upload my no makeup selfie:
This campaign is different to the other ones. For most people. I have still seen a lot of people uploading a picture saying, “#nomakeupselfie” with no donation or hint at what they are doing. WHAT IS THE POINT?!?!? But by nominating people to upload a picture, DONATE and tell people to touch their boobies and their moobies, a difference can actually be made. A million pounds worth of a difference in fact! Cancer Research have a huuuuge influx of donations, mainly via text, in the past 24h hours. So lets keep it going!
Text “BEAT” to 70007 so future generations do not have to suffer from cancer.
It can be beaten.
In June, 2013 I am climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro.
It’s the biggest free standing mountain in the world; the fourth highest mountain on Earth. And in aid of Meningitis Research Foundation I’m going to climb that 5,895 metres to the very top.
My mum thinks I’m stupid. She thinks I should be concentrating my money and time on my studies. Come on. I’m in my first year again. Its only a 40% pass mark! I have so much free time, spent hanging around in my bedroom watching How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory (my two new favourite shows). This is time I could be spent fundraising! Yes, admittedly I do have a very high target of £2,600 to raise in order for me to be able to go, but I am determined to prove my mother wrong and get that money.
And what an experience! How many people can say that they’ve climbed Kilimanjaro at barely 20 years old! It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity, I might as well do it whilst I’m still young and able, still free of commitment and still daring. So much in my life seems to be changing around me recently and I want to do something amazing myself, rather than just sitting there, same old, same old every single day.
I would very much appreciate it if anyone could give me just a little money to sponsor my climb, or to reblog this post and get my sponsorship page around. Its for a really good cause, I’m a student and so am in the second most at risk group to contract meningitis, and this charity does so much brilliant work. Thank you very much 🙂
