No, I've not been drinking. Honestly, I've got to go out in an hour, and it's either blogging or watching Dog The Bounty Hunter to keep myself awake. Lucky for you I chose blogging. What's this Happy Badger thing all about then, you're probably wondering to yourself?
Well, the Happy Badger is the latest lovely visitor from ao.com, Appliances Online to you & me. And the Happy Badger is visiting blogs across the internet spreading happiness and warm fuzzies by making £50 donations to the charities that bloggers choose.
Actually, this was the really hard bit. Which charity to choose. There's so many out there. I work for a charity, and we get so much help and support for our work and our clients from other charities. Plus you add in the issues that have affected our family over the years and it becomes almost impossible to choose. I mean, where would that £50 make the most difference? Could it be the hour in a lab that helps to find a cure, could it be the support for a homeless young person, the rescue and care of a mistreated animal? Could it be the emergency care parcel to help a refugee who has lost everything, the lifesaving injections for babies in the third world, the friendly visit for an elderly person who can't get out? It's everything, and a drop in the ocean. And a really difficult decision.
Eventually, I came to a conclusion, though not after a considerable argument with myself. My £50 is going to go to meningitis.org. Without the work they do, the research they've carried out through the years, I probably wouldn't be sitting here writing this blog, so I've got a lot to thank them for, and the Happy Badger's kind donation goes a small way towards that thanks.
If you want to know more about the Happy Badger, or want him to pay a visit to your blog with a gift for a charity close to your heart, pop over to happybadger.co.uk/ and register. Then watch out for a visit.
Disclosure: I have not received payment, but a donation will be made to the charity I have chosen to support in return for my writing this post. I have not been told what to write & all opinions remain my own.
