Still a little dazed

We are still feeling a little fuzzy about the response to Ellie's trust fund. So much so that we felt that me might break the £5000 target and had to think about what to do if that happened. Im awful conscience of the good public interest in this cause but also the abhorrent display of bad interest.
I felt it necessary to call the Charities Commison today because I was starting to feel uncomfortable that there are no officiating bodies in control of the public funding of this scale. Registering for a charity number felt much safer and more official if not legal. That was until they told me we were not eligible because Ellie is a single cause. I played hell fire with them by explaining that anyone could set up a trust fund with that kind of approach and have nobody know - thus people using schemes like this for "ill gotten gains" is like giving licence to print money. The charities commission couldn't comment on it but did put me on touch with the Institute for Fundraising.
Again, not a governing body but a place to explain how to run a trust fund legally and safely. As much as that put my mind at rest it occured to me that this loop hole should be looked at. I feel that strongly that I will approach my local MP about it. It worries me sick. In light of this revelation, it is our intention to make it public just how we will divide the donations up and what will happen to the excess should we go over our target. As this Trust fund is now public domain and has been recognised by the local press (who came today to photograph us as a Family) I hardly think we are going to do a runner with the money! Joking aside, we wanted to let you know the basics of the expenditure.
*Belles flight, accom, meals and day trips (between appointments) will be paid for. Mark and I will fund ourselves.
*Medical bills need to be settled. Some of the Doctors in Nevada are waiving their fees, some will charge and others will see belle through a free clinic - which we will donate money to as a form of thanks. The excess of Belles expenses from the first £5,000 will be paid accordiingly until it reaches zero.
*Should the fund exceed £5,000 but not more than £7,000 we will be delighted to fund UK organisations including three very special causes linked to us - Imagine Trust at Alderyhey Hospital, Muscular Dystrophy and the Stroke Association.
*Anything over £7,000 will be debated on this blog but one suggestion will be to set money aside for Ellie's future.
Now that you, as a donator are aware of this expenditure youwill be assured just exactly how your money is being spent.

Cor - what day. We had the local press over to photograph Belle and it was freezing. She had to walk infront of the camera and the icy winds were making her cheeks blue. She is not a fan of the camera - I know that for sure. I think they might have got a couple of shots for the article highlighting our campaign. Its thanks to Sharon Speakman who contacted the press. We had no idea this would happen but it feels good to reach out to those in our local community who often see Belle in a puschair and probably don't know why she uses one.
Between answering over 300 emails, I have pottered around my lil room trying to get organised for a shoot tomorrw. I dont always take many pictures in the iwnter months as its so dark and cold. But this is a special arrangement for a group of scrappers currently nestled in the vales of yorkshire in country house - scrapping! Im going to have to check the forecast though as its think with snow in some parts. I dont fancy having to sleep on the motorway like some are tonight.
Im going to go and hit the sack and try and stop my little heart beating away so fast. Everything is so overhwelming to the point of me almost blacking out. I worte to Belles three favourite people yesterday to see if they would like to sponsor belle. I dont like to ask for donations as I think that money ought to be earned - so sponsoring seems so much freindlier! We wrote to Gordon Ramsay at Claridges (Belles fave chef - mainly because she likes his fun side as opposed to his naughty language). Ive never seen a kid watch a cook with so much interest. We got a relpy saying that they had passed the mail to him. Well, belle almost joined in with my palpitaions. We also wrote to Liverpool Fc and in particular Belles hero - Stevie Gerrard. She gave Beckham the boot when he went to Barcelona years ago. I think she was wise in her ace substitution. And finally we wrote to Terri Irwin, the wife of the late Steve Irwin. Belle is probaly Steve's biggest fan. I remember when the day he died, she got so upset that she felt like dying too. She talks about him constantly as if they were freinds.
But even if we dont reecive a penny from those guys, it felt good for her to feel as if she could write to them. And an uplifted soul is better than the doldrums of boring hospital waits and visits.

Well my girl, you are a hero in my books, ya look out for your beautiful daughter if it were your own life you are both truly wonderful parents doing what they can whatever they can and how they can and that should be applauded too the highest level in my book...
There will always be nasty peeps around thats is the shame of it unfortunately, these I would like ta smack in the teeth meself right hard an all...

Well I think all of your travel expenses and such should come from the fund also, you both need to be there for Belle without a doubt it's one of the same thing in my book....
you should not have to worry while this is all happening....


I look at all the freebies you have given us all and we have glady taken them for nothing, so the least we can all do is support you in this if not in pennies then in spirit...........

Aw you got me all teary-eyed. How can they refuse you when they hear about Belle? I can't believe people are actually being mean about this. Well, actually nothing surprises me any more, human nature being so despicable sometimes. You keep your head up high and know that you are doing this for the right cause. And to all those haters out there, just put yourselves in Kirsty's shoes. You're just lucky that you've obviously never had to live through something as difficult as Belle, Kirsty and Mark have. Karma's a b*tch and you won't see it coming when it comes and bites you on the bum.

Let's hope that Belle's heros give her the recognition she deserves!
