A little Help in this Crazy World

This isn’t my normal type post where i blabber on about my normal boring mundane life and parade about in pretty frocks complaining about the weather.
You see, as much as i love my pretty frocks and what nots i can’t help but feel there is a bigger picture that needs looking at. This blog is a little escapism from the real world, but sometimes i’m guilty for escaping too much. I’m a complete head burier and unless something is right under my nose or directly affects me, i tend to just get on with my normal routines.
The thing is, the world is a crazy place right now. I’m not sure if it has always been  and i’m just more aware or if it genuinely is getting crazier. Freak weather patterns, kidnappings of young children, old people suffering unnecessarily. The list goes on.
From time to time i look up from my bubble and wonder what kind of world my little boy is growing up in to. Inside my bubble i provide him with all the love and security he could ever need, but outside of the bubble, well, it is unknown.

In New York and surrounding areas people are picking up pieces of their lives and trying to put them back together day:

I was sat in my nice warm home this morning eating my pastry and drinking my nice hot coffee and saw this
Misery for 2.5 million STILL without power after six days as lawlessness and fear take over New York’s outer boroughs 

I felt sick. What if it was us? What if it was you?
I have donated here: Red Cross you an too, as we all know, every little helps.

Things like this happen all the time and i know if i just have to go without a new dress or pair of shoes that month to contribute to a worthy cause, i have to do this. I hope you do to…
Also whilst you have your wallet/purses out..
This guy is praying for help. He is self raising funds to fight his way through cancer.. we can help. Alternative medicines work wonders! When my son was born he was very poorly, the doctors didnt really know what it was and generally thought he was a fussy baby and told me to just switch his milk and let him cry it out. Only through my own research and taking the alternative route, i found a Cranial Osteopath who literally healed my son. He was a different child after his treatment. When i returned to the doctors they had never heard of a cranial osteopath, but all i cared about was that my son was happy and healthy. I sincerly support anyone who seeks help for themselves. This man deserves to live as much as you or i. £1, $1 anything can help! donate here.

Ok thanks so much for reading, public service announcement over. It feels good to help though doesn’t it!!

    Thank you for this dear heart. The blog world is a nice distraction but fact of the matter is, there is misery all around. It doesn't hurt to take a moment of our time to help someone else through it.
