I cant believe it is October already. When I found out about the frocktober campaign for LOROS back in July and decided I wanted to help out, I wasnt sure exactly what to do. I straight away decided to host my own frock swap (which is happening on October 22nd: full details here) but I wanted to do more. Raising money for the charity is something I am passionate about but i also wanted to relay my passion for charity shopping. I said before I started this that if I could convert one person to spend a few pennies in a LOROS shop it would be worth it! However, having already done that pre frock swap (My friend Sophie had her first charity shop experience and wrote about it over on her blog) I know want to raise more awareness and get people spending money in LOROS shops.
So I have changed tack a little.
Instead of just having 31 posts with outfits (dont worry there will be plenty of outfit posts!) Each post will have a specific relation to LOROS. Like did you know LOROS has 28 shops over Leicestershire and Rutland and they are not just clothes shops? Did you know that 91p of every £1 they raise goes directly to patient care? Did you know it costs £7.7 million and while they do get some money from the NHS they have to raise at least £5 million from the local community?
Over the next few days I will be sharing my own personal story of LOROS and then its on to me telling you all about there fabulous shops, events, outfits and anything else I can do to show you what a worthy charity they are!
What can you do to help?
Of course, you can attend either my own frock swap event on 22nd October or LOROS event (details here) on the 29th October
You can shop to your hearts content in their charity shops!
During frocktober I am hoping to inspire people to get involved in LOROS events so please if you do use the twitter hashtag #bloggerdoesfrocktober and also if you would like to donate to the cause you can do here as I am trying to raise £1000 in 1000 days for LOROS
