Free money!

Well, it’s free money if you win. 🙂

Just register at http://freepostcodelottery.com/?ref=90563 with your (UK) postcode, and then check the site daily to see if you’ve won.

It’s that easy.

They don’t spam you, and it’s free to register. They only request that if you use an ad blocker that you consider disabling it for their site — because the prize money comes from the ads run on their site. They try to prevent the “bad” ads, so you shouldn’t ever see any pop-ups or scams there.

I’ve been checking my postcode for over 18 months now. I haven’t won yet, but there’s always tomorrow!

Isn’t it time you gave something back?

Giving Tuesday 2015

Today is “Giving Tuesday”. It’s a day where everyone is encouraged to give their time, money or their voice to charity, after the spending sprees of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It’s a day to give something back.

So what am I doing?

I’m giving my voice by posting about #GivingTuesday to encourage everyone else to give back too — you can find more information on the Giving Tuesday website.

I’m also posting about the “Eye to Eye” 2016 charity walk in London, UK to raise money for Moorfields Eye Charity too — you can find more information on about the event on Moorfields’ website including details of how to register to participate. The event only started in March 2015, so it’s quite new, but it seems to be taking off now!

I’ll be giving my time to participate in Eye to Eye 2016. I’ll be walking 14 miles around London in March 2016, that’s a little over half a marathon in distance. Hopefully it won’t be snowy or icy then. This is the very first charity event I’ll be participating in, and I wanted to do something specifically for eye research both in terms of raising money and the actual event, so Eye to Eye is perfect. If you’d like to sponsor me, you can do so on my sponsorship page — every penny goes directly to Moorfields Eye Charity.

Finally, I’m giving money to Moorfields Eye Charity too. In fact I already have.

What are you giving back…?
