Fundraising on May 12th

As I've mentioned in a previous post I'm going to be fundraising for Invest in ME on May 12th by dressing as a Princess for the day! To say I'm excited about this is an understatement; finding a way to fundraise when you have so little energy is rather difficult, so this is a big thing.

I've been overwhelmed by the support and donations I have received so far on my JustGiving page: I reached £50, half my initial target, in under a week! If you've been following my progress on the JustGiving page, Facebook or Twitter you'll know I shared a photo of my homemade, hand knitted tiara when I reached that halfway point.

I also received a wonderful fundraising pack from the charity I am supporting; Invest in ME. I will proudly be wearing the sash as part of my Princess costume!

The reason I am fundraising for an M.E charity is because we need research into the cause if we are to ever find an effective treatment and hopefully a cure! I also want to raise as much awareness about M.E. as possible, since it is still a misunderstood illness and the attitudes towards people who suffer from it can be very hurtful. Raising awareness and educating everyone about M.E. can only improve this!

I've promised that if I reach my £100 target before May 12th I'll give you all a sneak peek of my Princess dress! So if you want that sneak preview, and to help me smash my £100 target please text PCJW78 followed by the amount you want to donate (£1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or£10) to 70070 (e.g. PCJW78 £4 to 70070) or head over to my JustGiving page: http://www.justgiving.com/PrincessClare
