Regular Charity Stall and Charity Donations Update

Well yesterday was time to set up my regular charity stall.  I'm not sure how this year will go there as 55% of all staff moved out of the complex before Christmas to a cheaper to rent place.  It's a blow for the complex, the restaurant where I have the stall and also to me with selling my cards for charity.  I shall have to see how things go but might have to source other places to sell my cards this year.  I won't be good at that as I don't have much self-confidence.  Here is what the stall looked like last night as we left it for the week:


I am using the same charity as last month, Age UK, as I'd like to send them a bigger donation than I have at the moment for them.

Here is a post I did back in December 2009 mentioning that I had made £1,000.07 for different charities in 4 years.  I've now just gone past 5 years and my total is £1,277.90, so I have made £277.83 this year for various different charities, big and small, local and national.  I am so pleased with this and I know the charities appreciate what I do for them from the letters of thanks I get from them.

I would just like to thank everyone that supports me in helping me to raise funds for charities.  That might be:

  • by visiting my blog
  • making comments on my blog
  • for those that run challenge blogs that I can used the cards I make to enter challenges
  • for those that sponsor challenges as without them I would not have received some wonderful items that I've put to good use for my cards
  • for those that put up Blog Candy as I have won a couple of these in 2010
  • for those people that have sent me items to use in my cardmaking.

This has helped me to achieve this amount for charity in 2010 and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Your stall looks great Kym, I hope you do well with your sales and don't need to look elsewhere.

I couldn't believe that you said you don't have the confidence to look for somewhere else - you make lovely cards and I'm sure anyone/anywhere would be happy for you to sell them for your charities. You do a fabulous job

I wouldn't have the confidence to find somewhere to sell mine although I would love to but I would be upset if I got a negative reaction.
