Bawling my eyes out

Sport relief, tonight, made me cry so many tears. I don't know if it was down to my temperament today or the fact that David Walliams and John Bishop cried too. Either way I stretched to £10 in donations to help out causes where people will be saved.

Kids in the footage didn't want for anything but food. They didn't ask for hand outs but a hand up. Oh how I'm welling up just thinking about it.

My £10 was earmarked for some new socks but I already have threadbare ones. And threadbare ones are better than none at all.

Have you got a spare couple of pounds you won't miss? Xx

well done good starting point. 70p a day will help a child forever- one less take away junk food sandwich a week or one less trip to buy coffee instead of wasting your own energy and boiling the kettle at home pays for this at www.compassion.com it also teaches children and young adults to stop being so sefish and self indulgent with junk and overpriced gadgets too. Write a letter, send a small gift of paper - all they can have and you will change a life every day. OK we all say but we cannot afford it and then 99.9% rush to the shops and buy a coffee, buy a snack of chocolate at £1 ++ and a sandwich at £2 ++ and then a treat but they cannot afford 'nofin.com !!!!! If only they knew what they were spending the economy would be different too!! uneducated unfed children die because of greed

Thanks for the reminders Kirsty! Wasn't well enough to watch last night - meant to still donate - but your posting about it has actually made it happen!! And I hope it makes you feel good to know that you made that difference!

Me too...I went to bed feeling so sad for all of those poor souls and lucky to have the life I do. We are doing the sport relief mile tomorrow (three legged!) and have just over £100 in sponsors so far.

Me too, couldn't speak for the tears. Astonishing strength and powerful tv. Can I object to your first commenter ring anonymous..hardly a need for anonymity is there?

I take my hat off to JB for his week of hell - he is a legend! I did a cake sale at work on Friday (inspired by the Great British Sport Relief Bake Off) and we made a cracking £260 :D
