Take this for an example; this morning moods were delicate in the Mommatwo household. Momma had a hangover - it wasn't good.
Daddytwo had barely slept because Momma had left him with a teething baby and he had got up at the crack of sparrowfart with the boys.
Midget Gem had teething, and isn't a fan - and Jellybean was just generally a whinge pot.
Supermarket shopping isn't great on a NORMAL day, but with those added complications it was all beginning to look rather traumatic.
Then I pulled a pound coin from the dusty depths of my seldom opened purse, plopped both boys on the boat ride and stood back.
Laughing, singing, more laughing, fun and silliness, and something to talk about for the rest of the day (they don't get out much) and everyone's mood lifted - for a pound.
One pound was all it took to turn around the day and cheer everyone up.
It isn't a lot - but it can make a difference in a lot of ways, one pound.
You could donate just one pound, if that's all you can, to all kinds of worthy causes right now.
You could donate one pound to Poppy's Ride - raising funds for Leeds Children's Hospital - an incredible place where tiny, desperately ill babies can be turned into bright, bubbly, giggling one year olds.
You could donate one pound to help sponsor a child in Niger - collaboratively bloggers have now sponsored 8 children and are working to sponsor a great many more - could you donate a pound, or maybe £6 a month, to help them achieve even more?
You can see from the photos above what a difference a pound made here - here where a pound is nothing. Imagine the difference it can make to the lives of ill children, to their families, to the incredible staff caring for them.
Imagine the difference it could make to a child who has nothing, no education, no clean water, no food. Imagine.
It's only a pound.
