I’ve spent a lot of time procrastinating about which charities I’m going to give to over the coming year (I’m a sucker for the TV ads!) and after much deliberation, whilst realising I can’t be all things to all (wo)men, I have come up with this list – this is for two reasons: 1. to make me stick to it, and, 2. to take the pressure off as ‘the list’ (#40b440) is taking over my life a little!

So here goes…
