Charity of the Month: Action For Children

The charity of the month is Action For Children. This charity is one very close to my heart because it helps and supports vulnerable children and their families across the UK. Action For Children also work with decision makers to ensure government policies protect children, now and in the future.

Charity of the Month

Some of the many ways Action For Children support children from the early years are by:

  • Running over 100 Children’s Centres all over the UK.
  • Having classes for parents.
  • Working with local partners to offer health visitor services, speech therapy sessions and access to midwives.

I could go on and on listing all the amazing things Action For Children is doing in the UK. It is a great charity worth supporting if you are able to.

Supporting charities is what I like to do. Many may think I am able t do this because I have loads of money and that is not completely true. I enjoy giving those who are truly in need and I believe every little helps. This charity of the month blog series is a way for me to support charities online and encourage others to give if they can. Giving does not have to include money. You can give back by liking, commenting and sharing this post so more people get to read it. Also, you can support Action For Children through volunteering, raising money by running a marathon, organising a tea party, or challenging yourself in other ways and getting your family and friends to support you in raising money for a good cause.

Charity of the Month – Comic Relief

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the long Easter weekend wherever you are. The sun is shining here. We have been enjoying the sunshine here for the last few days now. I hope the sunny days stay for a bit longer. The charity of the month this April is Comic Relief. A few weeks ago, Comic Relief celebrated Red Nose Day and it was great to see the different ways individuals and organisations got involved. It is always important to support charities who intern support others. This year has been tough for many people in different ways and I am always eager to get involved with charities and do my bit.

Comic Relief’s Mission 

To drive positive change through the power of entertainment

How the donation is allocated

The money received from donations is allocated as grants to various charities. These charities help support those who are living tough lives in the UK and all around the world.

I think Comic Relief is doing an amazing job for those struggling to make ends meet. It is amazing to see how they support thousands of charities with grants.

Getting involved

You can get involved with Comic Relief through fundraising. Catch up on all the relevant information here. Also, you can also donate to Comic Relief. Your donations go a long way in shaping the lives of families all over the world. For example, £30 could support a child in Uganda to access early years education for a whole year, £50 could pay to get 200 meals to vulnerable children and their families in the UK. You can donate here. You can also support Comic Relief by shopping on their online store. They have cute noses, bottles, shirts, accessories and more on sale.

Product Review: Tisserand Peppermint Organic Essential Oil

*Affiliate link.

I have been using this Tisserand Peppermint Organic Essential Oil  for many months. The brand is one of my favourites when it comes to organic essential oils and I really like this Peppermint Organic Essential Oil.

Here are my thoughts on this pure essential oil –

PROS
  1. I love the refreshing minty, menthol fragrance. It is quite strong but it works for when I need it.
  2. It is an organic pure essential oil, perfect for vegetarians and vegans.
  3. This is a cruelty free product.
  4. If you prefer mixing oils, the Peppermint Essential Oil blends well with other essentials oils like Lavender, Tea Tree, Lemon and Rosemary.
  5. A little goes a long way with this oil. You would likely only need a few drops each time.
  6. It is a great multitasking essential oil. I use it in a variety of ways.
  7. It is quite affordable (link to purchase below).

CONS

None.

I can’t fault this essential oil in anyway. It is a lovely little product and I enjoy using it. All I would say is do be careful when using any type of essential oils. I once had an accident with the Peppermint Essential Oil (not this brand) and it wasn’t pleasant at all. I wrote about my experience here so you can have a read if you haven’t done so already. To be safe, I would recommend you handle essential oils with care. Treat them like you would treat strong prescription drugs. Don’t use essential oils if you have not done a lot of research on them.
