Weirdly, even though I couldn't particularly afford it in the first place, now I feel like I have twenty pounds burning a hole in my pocket. Except the sales are over and there's nothing I really need, so maybe I should think about helping to stitch things back together.
In the past, I have run and been sponsored (but ended up paying most of it myself when I couldn't get hold of several sponsors) for Cancer Research UK. My favourite charity because I hate cancer and I love life.
On Saturday I was on a train which hit into a person who jumped under the tracks. In the past, I have only thought how inconvenient it is when I go to the station and it's closed for similar reasons, something which sadly happens frighteningly frequently. But on Saturday I was really shaken and struck by the horrible state suicide leaves people behind in. Wendy Brandes' collection for fellow blogger Janet would also be a great cause to donate to, if only I had a credit card.
So right now I want to donate to the Red Cross, for obvious quake-related reasons. I was once in an earthquake, which was apparently quite strong, but I slept right through it. I am very grateful about that.
