Counting our Blessings
Have you ever had one of those lightening moments? A moment when you realise just how very lucky you are? With all the dreadful news that hits our headlines every day I do realise how lucky I am to be based in beautiful Norfolk – blessed with three healthy and happy (even if they are a little naughty) children. Whatever life throws we are not living in a war torn environment or somewhere stricken by a natural disaster.
When I heard about the stunning work that the team at Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope are doing for child amputees I had one of those lightening moments and so we are delighted to be able to offer some support for this wonderful charity.
ELoH raises money to support amputee children in developing countries - they are currently helping around 150 of these very needy, vulnerable children in Sierra Leone and Liberia, and a further 40 in India. Twin sisters Victoria Bacon and Sarah Hope set up ELoH five years ago inspired by their daughter/niece Pollyanna and in memory of their mother, Elizabeth - following a tragic bus collision in which their mother died and Pollyanna was left an amputee.
With that in mind we at Aurina have decided to give 10% of the online sales of each of our bestselling personalised table mats to ELoH. We will also hold events in store where 10% of sales will be donated to the charity and will actively work towards building more and more awareness.
There are so many ways that this charity can be supported from donations to sponsoring a child or buying one of our personalised table mats - click on the image above to take you to the right place.
