A day in the life of a British student trying to live off just £10 a week (excludes rent and household bills) for 9 months to raise money for 4 different charities: Tommy's (the baby charity), Home-Start, Lupus UK and Hughes Syndrome. Follow my progress, and please please sponsor me to do this, by donating to at least one of the charities. You can find out about the charities and donate by clicking on the 'Just Giving Widgets'. It doesn't matter how much you give...every little helps!
I was a bit annoyed at Twitter because someone had already taken the username '10poundpom' and 'tenpoundpom' so I had to take '10poundpomCL'...which I think is a bit silly. But oh well, nothing I can do about it!
Also, I can now proudly say that I am doing this because I WANT to and not because I have to! The other week my dad offered to set up a monthly direct debit thing so I wouldn't have to live off £10 a week, but I turned it down because I said I wanted to do this :)
So I am now doing this purely for the four charities! And I am very proud of myself for turning down the offer of money each month...my boyfriend thinks I'm crazy!!
AND It's less than 2 weeks until I start!! Scary! So everyone join the Facebook group, follow my Twitter page, and DONATE!
