I’m delighted to be able to bring to you today a guest post from Debbie of An Organised Mess. Debbie is taking part in Team Honk’s charity fundraising effort in the next couple of weeks for Comic Relief and as a Team Honk Social Supporter, I’d love to share what they’re getting up to. Over to you Debbie..x
Becoming a part of Team Honk has made me do things I wouldn’t have considered doing and introduced me to people who have been friends in real life as well as over the internet.
This post is a case in point, Emma, as another fab member of the Team Honk team has welcomed me onto her blog, which of course gives me the chance to reflect on last year and my aspirations for this year.
Of course, there’s no competing with Emma’s fab 118 look but I did get to meet bloggers, to dress my children up, and organised a fab Sport Relief Mile Flash Mob Zumba at Barry Island.
And yes, I couldn’t have imagined doing any of this without the strength of bloggers coming together to raise money and make a lasting change.
I first got involved with the Welsh baton, which gave the whole family and opportunity to get involved, and the for the children to understand what Comic Relief is about and how our efforts and make a difference to so many.
And as we watched the baton travel up the country towards John O’Groats so came inevitable feeling that we could have done more, and so with the support of so many amazing people we organised a Flash Mob in Wales to coincide with the baton reaching its final destination.
And this year when I heard about the Comic Relief Danceathon it was difficult not to jump at the opportunity, to raise much needed funds and also for as many members of Team Honk as possible to be together at Wembley, making a difference, together. Everyone at Wembley has a target of £150 to reach, and due to a fantastic sponsorship donation from Betfair I will be there on the day. And of course I’m not thinking about whether I’ll have the stamina to dance for 6 hours, I am of course planning my outfit, and what to pack in my rucksack.
But come what may, next Sunday I’ll be dancing my socks off, and if you’re able to sponsor me too I’d be so grateful. Thanks to Emma for hosting this post and to Team Honk for making it possible for me to be at Wembley.
