Bubbles from Ghana... ish!

I'd like to share with you a very special digital postcard that I have not long received.  Had I been more organised, and requested it sooner, it would've winged it's way to me all the way from Ghana.  Hence the "ish" - the photo and postcard was created there, but sent once home.  I feel very honoured, despite my late request, to have been sent the postcard and photo that you can see below.

Recently, an inspirational group of Bloggers (Annie from Mammasaurus, T from MummyBarrow, and Penny from Alexander Residence ) decided not simply to blog or tweet or write on facebook about the amazing causes that Comic Relief supports.  They decided instead, to form #TeamHonk, and to visit one of the many places that needs and benefits from the help of Comic Relief, to see for themselves how vital this work is, and to (through blogging and other social media) raise the profile of those who need support, and all-importantly, help raise money too.

This photo was taken at the Virtuous Women's Bakery in Accra, where women make, bake and sell bread to earn money and make themselves financially independent. This benefits a large number of families including single mothers to support themselves. Here you see Penny blowing bubbles to the children in the adjoining nursery which the mothers themselves set up for their children to play safely whilst they work. They loved bubbles!

This is a digital postcard sent from TeamHonk (www.mammasaurus.co.ukwww.aresidence.co.ukwww.mummybarrow.com ) during their travels with Comic Relief in Ghana celebrating #goodwork.
For the past 25 years the money raised through Red Nose Day has been changing the lives of the poorest and most disadvantaged people in the UK and Africa. Let’s Keep Up the Good Work. Find out how at rednoseday.com

Thank you ladies, for your postcard and for giving me this opportunity to share the #goodwork that #TeamHonk has been doing. x
