Spread Some Christmas Cheer

Merry Christmas All!

What an amazing year it's been. This Christmas we have our little Oscar with us. Becoming a mother was incredible; labour was tough with some complications, but I'm now I'm fully recovered and I feel very blessed to have such a gorgeous son and be enjoying family life with him.
Sadly, this isn't the case for all new mothers, and today I wanted to share an organisation that helps women who have have not had a good labour and are left with a socially and physically debilitating condition after; obstetric fistula. The organisation is called the Fistula Foundation and you can learn more about the condition from the video below.

I can't imagine having the joy of a new baby tarnished by this condition, and all that these women can endure because of it. There are many ways you can help; USD $450 / €330 / AUD $500 will provide a surgery for one woman. You can also make a monthly contribution.
So my Xmas present to myself this year isn't new shoes, clothes, or anything else I don't actually need but instead it's the opportunity to change another new mother's life for the better. I think that's a pretty neat. You can donate any amount you wish, and they have a lot of products on the site for sale also.

The foundation requests you make your donation by December 31st if possible. So, don't think, donate now!

Thanks for reading, Merry Christmas! Please share, please donate!
