Back in April, I started getting into charity work in a big way. From purchasing badges all the way up to sponsored walks. I’m currently doing an October walk with Libra for Guide Dogs. That said, I updated my blogs banner today. It now sports the logos of the three charities I support on a monthly basis. BulliesOut is a relatively new setup based in Wales. They deal with bullying in all of its forms and every environment, but work with both the victim AND bullying, neutralising the situation and creating moral guidance.
Woman’s Aid is a very dear charity to my lady and I. It is of course, for all victims of domestic violence and abuse, but named after the most common. Thankfully it’s something I’d never have to face being quite capable. It angers me to think women and children go through this kind of suffering in this day and age. Sadly, we know two people like this, but we are enjoying watching their empires of hate begin to crumble and everyone they’ve played innocent to, see their true colours.
The Lucy Faithfull Foundation is also rather amazing, helping prevent child abuse before it has happened. It isn’t hugely well known, and deserves so much more recognition. In fact all three of those charities do. We became patrons of these particular charities as we like the cause, know they do not overpay themselves or hold a vast pool of funds in an account somewhere. (See the shocking facts on the Royal British Legion). Details like this can be found on the government website.
