With less than six months to go to finish my list of 29 things to do before I turn 30. 30. Thirty. Thir-tee. Cripes, I never thought I'd turn thirty but here it comes, barrelling down the barrel of my life. I'm not afraid of birthdays - I'm looking forward to the next ten years of my life even, but it's just going too fast.
#17 - Donate money to a good cause.
My friend Elle, with a fabulous blog over at [a bird in the hand] recently ran a half marathon. I totally admire her, I admire anyone who can run further than their letterbox. (I sure can't - and here in London the letterboxes are in the front door.)
Check out her post about 'run to the beat' (and donate if you feel you want to). Elle ran her marathon for an awesome cause - the A21 Campaign... It's quite upsetting to read about the sex trafficking industry actually. Well I guess the upsetting thing is to realise that it actually happens every day, to beautiful women who have no choices or freedom. It's certainly much easier to pretend these things aren't going on in our world! There are a number of things we can do to help, and Elle chose to be sponsored for her half marathon to help this wonderful cause. I chose be one of the many who sponsored her.
One more tick on the bucket list.
What a good feeling.
