Saying thank you and being grateful

It's important to say thank you sometimes and today I'd like to say thank you to someone I met through Facebook. She's an inspiration in that she's fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Research by asking fellow crafters to donate items for fans on the facebook page to bid on.

My new friend's original aim was to raise £500 for Macmillan but it's grown really fast and now her Facebook page has over 500 fans and she's more than passed the £500 mark. The new goal is £1000. 

The motto for the page is:
Make a difference, Make someone smile , Make today matter
I think that this pretty much sums up the goodwill that the jewellery makers, crafters and most recently writers (signed copies of books have been donated) have demonstrated in giving their time and handmade crafts to such a great cause.

As if that wasn't enough, my new friend has also recommended a place for me to approach about having a crafts stall. Turns out I was approved and I hope to have my first stall in April. Again, this is thanks to her.

So thank you my new friend for being an inspiration to so many crafters and makers and for providing a platform for people to donate and raise money in aid of such a good cause. And thank you for being so positive and helping me with my own new business.

Why not become a fan today of Make for macmillan on facebook and be a part of something very worthwhile for a really good cause.
