Can you help?? £1 is all we need

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

  1. Hi :-) i am so glad i found this post and in turn found Tamsyn's blog. How she has the strength to blog whilst looking after her beautiful children and Alex and quite frankly living day to day astounds me . Her story is unbelievably sad yet she gives me hope (plus many tears) when reading. What an amazing ,strong , selfless, lady she is and i expect a wonderful friend to you too. Thank you so much for writing this post and telling a little of her story x x

    Great idea. Will put my thinking cap on as to what else we might do. As you know I put a babycarrier up for sale on facebook and it was sold within an hour - all the money went to Alex's fund so this might be another way poeple could help - rather than using freecycle or ebay
