I have a post for you which is more serious than my last few, and it should be shorter than them in all honesty, but I think it’s something important to talk about, so bare with me.
They say Christmas is the time to give back a little bit… I think we should give back all year around, but it’s no secret that donations to charity go up around Christmas. So, this kind of does tie in with the Blogmas challenge I’ve taken on (and done very well considering Blogtober was an utter flop).
My tutor in Uni is raising money for the CF Trust: Cystic Fibrosis is a utterly horrendous disease, affecting more than 10,400 in the UK. CF controls the movement of salt and water in and out of cells, meaning that people with cystic fibrosis experience a build-up of thick sticky mucus in the lungs, digestive system and other organs, lowering the life expectancy of around 41. It’s been found that 1 in 25 people carry this gene without an idea until a child is born with CF.
All money gathered from the trust goes into research in the disease and helps treatment for it. With the money raised, they’re currently trying to gain more clinical trials to find out more about the disease, and also give a voice to those with CF. They also attempt to make the lives of those with CF better. I’m no expert, so I’ll link the website here if you want to find out more.
I have donated to the fundraiser she is doing (I am anonymous on it), so I’ll leave a link here to it, and it SHOULD soon be on the sidebar of my blog itself soon enough, or at least just a link you can copy and paste.
Stay safe and stay happy, Angels! ❤
