Priviledge Isn’t Cool If You Don’t Use It Right

Find a cause. Become an advocate. Fight for what you believe in. And what I believe in other than the PPPP, is the Room To Read charity. I attended their big London bash last night – it was a wine tasting dinner – and you can only imagine how messy it got after just 2 hours!

The Founder and Executive Chairman, John Wood, came to the podium with this infectious enthusiasm and asked everyone in the room if we could all raise £2 million together with 2 mystery ‘Matchers‘…and guess what? He did! These Matchers are anonymous donors matching what we raise. God Bless Them too!

I have never seen anything like it! And probably won’t ever again, well, that’s not true, at least not for another year! I wanted to say a special thank you to everyone that was in the room and bring this fantastic charity to light with my readers. I must say my favourite thing he said other than explaining where all of the money goes to – building schools and buying books for girls – was his expression GSD. It means to Get Shit Done!

Privilege isn’t cool if you don’t use it right. And it was used so well last night!

This organisation consists of outstanding people for an outstanding cause!
