Thank you for helping us make the world better for Etta ❤️🌍
In a year where fundraising has been difficult, you’ve really dug deep and supported 2 charities that are very close to our hearts: The Grand Appeal and Sands United FC Salisbury. We are very grateful- your donations will make a huge difference to both sick children and their families in the South West and bereaved fathers in the Salisbury area.
We couldn’t just thank you for your kind donations, I needed to thank you for all the wonderful kind acts you did too!
I made this mosaic (I think 158 pictures) to show all the kind acts that you carried out over the campaign.
I wish I could list all of the kind deeds but here are a few:
⭐️Lots of you did litter picks/ recycled more/ planted flowers or trees 🌳🌺
⭐️Lots of you gave blood/ signed up to give blood or go on stem cell register 💉
⭐️Lots of you donated food to your local food bank 🥫🍞
⭐️Lots of you donated toys to local Christmas present appeals 🎁🧸
⭐️ Some of you have signed up to volunteer 👏🏻
⭐️Lots of you donated to money to a cause that was important to you 💰💵
⭐️Lots of you bought presents for key workers, domestic workers and those you might not usually buy for 🛍
⭐️ 2 children in developing countries will receive cleft palate surgery and heart surgery 👶👶
⭐️ And a whole load of you smiled more, said kind things and spoke the names of Etta and other children who have died ❤️
A special shout out to my beautiful cousin Verity who ran 28 miles for Etta (a mile a day) to raise money for The Grand Appeal. 💖🏃🏼♀️
And my gorgeous friend Emily over in Florida who managed a kind act every day for Etta with her 2 little girls 👶🏼👧🏼
And last but not least my amazing Sister-in-Law @kimberley_alice_strickland who publicly thanked a different person each day for their kindness and drummed up lots of donations whilst doing it! ❤️💬
We are SO lucky to have you all.
And as Winnie the Pooh says… “How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”
We are so lucky that Etta’s life continues to be our driving force every day- even over a year on.
