Be the Change
Share love 365 days a year!
What could you change with your spare change?
This is the third year of running this campaign, and I could not be more thrilled to be partnering up with 12 charities whom I hope will inspire you to share a little of your love from Valentine's Day 2019 until Valentine's Day 2020, when we start all over again with another 12 worthy causes..
Last year, I raised hundreds of pounds for the charities involved, this year, I would love to raise thousands for the deserving causes I am featuring. Please help spread the news to friends and family so that we can improve the lives of people in their time of need. The campaign was a great success with the charities benefiting from so many kind donations, and you can still contribute if you missed out on the day of love!
Thank you for reading and supporting; on behalf of all of the charities!

The concept of the campaign was born out of my frustration that so much can be spent on meaningless, material items while animals, people and our planet are in need of help.
Social media is bombarded with elaborate bouquets, designer handbags, shoes and even cars amongst others on Valentine's Day.
While there is nothing wrong with buying gifts to show your love for someone, surely a little of that love, or money could be put to use in helping someone who, for them, it could be a life line.
We support children and parents experiencing hardship by working in partnership with local council services such as health visitors, social workers, women’s shelters and other charities and agencies.
We take pre-loved and new item donations for babies and children up to age 10, and redistribute them to families facing financial hardship via various existing family services in Brighton & Hove.
SEEd supports and enables educators and young people to place sustainability at the heart of their work and learning through empowering; facilitating; and catalysing to promote the new learning required by all of us to live sustainably.
We work with school's across the UK on embedding sustainability through a Whole School Approach, working with young people and teachers
My Discombobulated Brain
My Discombobulated Brain aims to tackle the stigma associated with mental health head-on while offering a source of support and education to those who are affected by these issues.
The charity came from the experience of what it was like to watch someone you love, and personally, go through mental health issues including the stigma that goes alongside it.
It was in 1988 when the first seedlings of Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary were sown. Since this time Carole Webb, a former veterinary nurse, has cared for hundreds of farm animals.
