You are all so quick – Rocks for Rosie sales take off, and it’s only been open a few days. In fact, I don’t quite see how, unless Celia is indeed a time lord, she can have started up on Facebook, made them, had them ordered and they actually arrive at people’s houses, in the timescale it’s been.
Here’s another picture,(subliminal message to Chris, I like these very much and Valentine’s day is soon)
but there are many more here http://www.facebook.com/#!/RocksforRosie, and another on Michelle’s comments on the last post.
And you just look at the pictures, choose what you want, (as a thrilling extra, the stones all sound like they are jewels from Harry Potter) and then email email@example.com and she sorts out the rest, in true TKOE fashion.
There’s two other fundraising things being planned, which I really really want to tell you about, but I’m not allowed to yet. Both are really exciting and sooooo Rosie. If I typed them now, without looking at the screen, would that count as me not telling you, but my fingers doing it without me knowing? Nope, I must stay quiet for now.
12th was a bit sad. Today though we watched a DVD today from 2001 and 2002 which were films which Rosie had made at Sue, Dave, Evie and Gwen’s house, which they sent us for her birthday. It was one of those so glad we had it, laughing, crying times. Cal was fascinated because he is only 8/9 and has this tiny, squeaky voice.
The other thing which has happened since the last post, is that we have had two more donations, one from the staff at Newent School – thank you – and one which was a totally unexpected sum from Thorntons, because Rosie died in service. We’ve decided to donate something from this. So, we now only have to raise:
We’ve thought long and hard about which charities to support through our £20k challenge, and we’ve decided they will be:
Little Princess Trust – Rosie’s very first worry about having cancer was what would happen to her hair, and she lost it all twice. Trying on wigs and then having one, was both the saddest of times and the funniest, and we know what difference it makes to the whole family and friends. And they are based locally.
The Birmingham Teenage Cancer Trust Young People’s Unit – they supported all of us, and this is a regional centre for us, which makes a difference nationally.
The Forget me Not Trust – so we keep Rosie’s Yorkshire connections and because they are doing things for families and friends which Rosie would totally approve of
The Willow Foundation – because they help everyone by sorting out amazing days out. If it weren’t for them, Rosie and Toby would never have met David Yates and Daniel Radcliffe, or had the best day of her life.
Don’t worry, we’ll still be working with Hope, but we needed help and support from so many different places and we want other families to have that too.
Well, this is a surprisingly long post, so I’d better stop now.
