Paying the kindness forward

I have been fortunate to have had some amazing mumsnetters help me out when i really needed it and a massive thankyou for that. I have volunteered to work 2 nights over Christmas to help Crisis homelessness charity in a women's centre to help others that really need it.

If any of you would like to, i would really appreciate a sponsor where any money raised helps to make someone's Christmas a little more bearable.

Hope this does not offend, no pressure, only if you would like to smile

Well done.

I have donated to this rather than shoebox appeal. I was reading the OCC thread and thought that I would much rather help a women's centre charity instead. I have sent a donation.

It's a lovely idea to pay it forward.

I don't send Christmas cards or birthday cards any more as they just get thrown away - the money that I would have spent on them now goes to charity (I choose a different one each year)

Just want to do something good for others that need it and try and help raise a little extra along the way if you know what i mean, every little helps so much

Lovely idea, how are things with you?

Things are going really well smile I am finally in on my 1st of 2 placements of my final year of uni, not started theory yet though but feeling quite positive and getting on with it, still feeling the warmth from people's generosity and care smile
