  7. This is a great theme, and your choices for your posts are interesting. I’ve not read all yet, skimming for time pressures, so apologies for fly-by visiting. I’m not in position of being able to donate unfortunately ,but it’s still informative. When I’ve time to explore from your posts better and find out more about some like this charity and others, I will. Thanks for dropping by my blog ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I know the feeling of fly-by visiting. I think the biggest challenge is keeping up with reading and commenting on blogger’s posts. I’ve been doing great with keeping up with the post for the day (and I didn’t pre-write) but I am way behind in visiting other A-to-Z participants blogs. I’m trying though! Thanks for stopping by.

      • I enjoy a look at the charities you’re choosing ๐Ÿ™‚ Blog-hopping does take ages doesn’t it and there’s so many excellent responses. I’m not happy with my efforts but just about keeping up and learning lots along the way ๐Ÿ™‚ Best wishes
