My beautiful friend Tamsyn blogs at Anecdotes of a manic mum and to be quite frank, she is having a terrible, terrible time of it at the moment. Tamsyn and her husband Alex moved over to France in search of the "good life" and had a harem of dogs, cats, chickens and ducks, not to mention 4 amazing children under the age of 8. They had ambitions of being green and self sufficient. Money was tight, but boy were these guys happy.
Everything changed in the blink of an eye one day in October last year. Alex suffered a devastating injury playing Rugby that saw him have 2 brain bleeds in 48 hours. Tamsyn was told to prepare for the worst. Please take the time to read her blog, because my words cannot even begin to touch the way that Tamsyn expresses her feelings for the situation.
Yesterday was Alex's 33rd birthday - here is a letter that Tamsyn wrote to him on her blog as you can see, life is changing dramatically for this wonderful family but they are struggling financially to bring Alex back to the UK.
If everyone of my twitter/blog followers donated just £1 that would be over £2k raised for this family. It would really, *REALLY* make a difference, it would help a fellow blogger/mum/wife/friend and give her one less thing to worry about. I will start the blogger donation going and pledge £50 below.
You can find out more on the dedicated website that has been set up in Alex's name making waves for Alex
Peace and Love
