Mary Kipling is raising money for CUMBRIA - RUNGWE COMMUNITY LINK

My story

It's that time of year...parties, presents, New year sales...and we hope you get lots of goodies.

But it would be brilliant if you would give just one thing a miss and donate the money to Cumbria - Rungwe Community Link instead. Just one thing, that you won't miss anyway. We'll use the money for school or community projects in Rungwe, Tanzania, and the kids there will really notice the difference.
In the past people have given the cost of a dodgy CD, or a top in the sales, or made home made presents for their friends, or not sent Christmas cards to people they see every day and given that money. Some give the cost of a bottle that would otherwise give them a hangover, or the box of chox that piles on the pounds they then have to loose in the New year - absolute WIN!

And no-one's missed what they've not bought with the money they've donated instead.

Let us know what you're not buying, by making this donation.

Thank you - asante sana.
