christmas card challenge


It’s Christmas Card Challenge time!

If you’re unfamiliar with my annual fundraising drive, let me explain.

Since 2008, I’ve held a digital ‘Christmas Card Challenge’: I donate the amount of a postage stamp*, which is what I would’ve spent if I was sending an actual card, for each individual commenter who has left a comment since the previous Boxing Day. Why? One: I don’t send physical cards anymore (paper waste bothers me). Two: It’s still important that I contact people to pass along seasonal wishes, as well as to say thanks for the continued blog support.

The amount of money the challenge raises is then deposited into a savings account I created to work towards one of my ‘Living List’ goals: To provide money for a study scholarship.

If you haven’t commented this year, please do so now. Tell me anything! What are you reading? What do you have planned for summer? What you ate for breakfast! I don’t mind!

Thank you for helping make a difference. It will. xx
