Progression of me

from eighty four to now…

Help me help the next generation!

on April 11, 2015

A few days ago I received a chocolate bunny just like this one:

How cute is he?

All smiles and shiny.

And so TASTY!

I took a bite…and then another…and then another.  And before I could help myself, within an hour he was gone!

Afterwards I felt sick and kind of annoyed at myself.  Why is chocolate  so addictive?  Why can’t I simply have one bite and save the rest for  later?  It’s not only at this time of year.  It’s ALL THE TIME!!!    Chocolate is no longer a treat in our society…easily sourced and often on special!!!  It has become part of many people’s every day diets….why is this?

I have decided to give up chocolate.  After my gorge on the Easter bunny, I wondered to myself how long I should go without it for.  A month?  Three?  No..I decided on 6.  And then I thought, why not make it worthwhile.  I wondered if there was such a thing as “Give up Chocolate for Charity”.  I googled and came across a campaign called “Dechox” run by the Heart Foundation in the UK.  Basically, you give up chocolate and raise money for the Heart Foundation.  Great idea, I thought!  But for one, it’s in the UK and two, it’s finished for the year.

I then thought to myself, what if I raised my own money for a charity of my choice.  Is that even possible?  And lo and behold it is!  Through mycause.  You can choose the charity and how much you wish to raise and with a few clicks of a button it’s done!  Too easy!

So which charity did I choose?  It’s not a charity many people will have heard about and in fact they don’t get ANY government funding.  They rely purely on grants and volunteers.  The charity I chose is the Children’s Food Education Foundation; whose aim is to “reduce the risk & incidence of diet related disease by engaging, educating and empowering children & young people to make mindful food choices”.

Knowledge is power.  And I believe if we can help educate the youth of today, we just might be able to help the next generation and avoid our country continuing on the road to diet related diseases and illness.  I would love your support.  Please check out my page below and feel free to donate!  Every dollar helps.  My target is to raise $1000 and with your help I know we can do it 🙂
