This November/Christmas I've decided to do my own twist on Movember, to raise money to donate to children in poverty for Christmas.
I'm donating them via a local radio station, Forth FM, who organise this every Christmas:http://www.forthone.com/missionchristmas/
I'm not looking for donations, as I'm hoping family / friends / colleagues will donate, and it's a local cause.
I just wanted to see if others thought it was a good idea, as I'd love to see more people do it in their local area. I may even develop a tash4toys site if it proved a popular idea.
I made a blog that explains more: https://allyburns.wordpress.com/
My main concern is that Movember is about raising money for Mens Health, but ultimately people donating have the choice on which causes to donate to, and I'd like to think I'm not stopping people donating to mainstream Movember causes as well.
So far it's been well received, but I'd welcome your thoughts, and ideas, e.g. other plaes where LEGO toys can be donated to people in need - generally kids who ca't affor LEGO at all.
