Title: Anthony Nolan Trust - Fundraising - CP&AN 10 For 10 - It's Just For Charidee!
Post by: bamboonoclue on Friday, December 4, 2020, 23:37:45
Hey all,

I appreciate it is a tough time for a lot of people and helping out charity to those less fortunate than several of us might be a bit more pushed to the back of the mind at the moment.

However, one of my incredible sisters has been raising money for the Anthony Nolan trust via the company she is partner of. Along with many other colleagues, my other sisters and also yours truly.

She's completed 10k for 10 days and I joined her via Zoom to participate with her virtually. The twist was, each day she was wearing fancy dress. On the day I joined her she was a T-Rex and I was a Lion. I continued the fundraising effort into the evening where I did my usual live poetry slot. Yep, Bamboo was dressed as a Lion whilst performing his spoken word for the evening.

The Anthony Nolan Trust, for those that don't know help enable people with blood cancer to survive by finding stem cell donors and matches. An extraordinary and awesome charity. My sister's company have them as Charity of the Year and are looking to raise 10k by the year end. They're well on their way to their target and already at 4k in a month.

If you want to donate head to https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/cpandan10for10

If you want to watch me perform spoken word (maybe just for the pure enjoyment of being able to point and laugh) you can watch here https://www.facebook.com/AwayWithWordOpenMic/videos/364527801284241/ (no FB account needed, open for anyone to view).
I appear from 1hr 9mins 30secs but if poetry or spoken word is your thing, there really are people much more talented than I, so worth a watch from the beginning.

Any donations would be incredible but it doesn't stop there - if you can't afford to donate I would highly recommend anyone on here 16-30 joining the Anthony Nolan Stem Cell Donor Register. It's really easy and you can register online, they'll send you a swab pack with instructions - pop it back in the SAE and send it off :) Obviously a lot on here are older than 30 so encouraging your older kids, grandkids etc would be great and they could potentially help save a lot of lives. https://www.anthonynolan.org/8-ways-you-could-save-life/donate-your-stem-cells

If you made it this far, it's really appreciated.

Cheers,
Bamboo :)

It might help if the thread title let people know what this is actually about.

Apologies, I missed this and it was bumped off the landing page.

Yes, you are correct of course but I do mention the charity on the second sentence/paragraph. I can't change the thread title permanently though so I feel like many do about Twitter not having an edit button, after making an error  :crash:

I know I can adapt it for the individual comment reply but it then reverts back to the original  I think?!

Thanks though FH
