#GivingTuesday - and a giveaway!

Tuesday 29th November 2016 is #givingtuesday, a global day of giving.  It follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the perfect time to give something back.  

To raise awareness for #givingtuesday the WCWD blog is running its first competition!  We are giving away a great little book called 'The Greatest Guide to Green Living' by Lynne Garner (worth £7.99).  The book would make a great christmas present for the eco warrior in your family!

For more information on #givingtuesday visit www.givingtuesday.org.uk.  

Good luck!

How to raise money for charity with internet searches

Did you know there is an alternative search engine to Google which donates money to the charity of your choice every time you search?  Check out easysearch.org.uk, where 'making just 10 searches a day, you could raise around £20 a year for to your chosen cause'.  (Although if you're anything like me you make a lot more than 10 searches a day!)

I was pleased to find a local charity of mine in the easysearch.org.uk database.  I chose Wanderers Haven Animal Sanctuary to receive donations from my searches.  Wanderers Haven is a special to me as we adopted our dog Bobby from them in 2008.  I have now saved my charity's personalised link as my home button to encourage me to visit the site.

If you already use, or will be using, easysearch.org.uk let me know in the comments which is the charity of your choice to receive donations from your completed searches.  There are over 10,000 good causes to chose from!

KONY 2012

See what we can do? If all people could do this then it would stop all the dilemmas happening in the world right now. Even though this happened in 2012, child soldiers are still being kidnapped now, but thanks to this video, the numbers of child soldiers has decreased dramatically.
