Bricking It For Charity

Dear lovely people…..So, I thought I’d throw myself off a building – don’t worry it’s for all the right reasons, I’m raising money for St Mungo’s  homeless charity.

Living in London breaks my heart sometimes, I walk past people sitting on the pavement begging for money – I usually don’t carry cash and I don’t know what to say to them.  I try to make eye contact as I say sorry and no, it’s the least I can do, acknowledge them…but it’s not enough.

There’s an urban saying that if you give money to people on the streets it feeds addictions, did some tight person make that up to appease their conscience?  There may be some truth in it, I don’t know, I’m no expert.  So I got to thinking, what can I do? Homelessness is a complex problem that I am ill equipped to tackle…. but I can (probably) abseil down 210 ft from the top of Senate House on Saturday 10th June, and I can raise as much money as possible so the good people at St Mungo’s may continue to support some of our society’s most vulnerable people.

Please donate and give hope to people so much less fortunate than ourselves….and donate for me, I’m stepping out of my comfort zone and will be bricking it for charity on June 10th!

    Great idea, and I know just what you mean about the guilt of walking past, and the confusion about how to help rather than harm. Making a donation to your cause has made me feel better already! xxx
