Quick version if you’re in a hurry:

  • All three of my Blogger’s Guides are half-price from 6th – 11th December
  • All the money raised in that time will be going to Divya Shanthi, a small charity in Bangalore, India

And now, the slightly longer version…

Back in 2010, I spent a few days in Bangalore with my family (parents, brother, sister and then-fiancé-now-husband). We were there Divya Shanthi, a small charity that my church supports and has strong links with. We were overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of everyone we met … but also by the stark poverty.

  • We saw kids dressed in rags, begging on the streets.
  • We saw shacks at the side of the road from the airport.
  • We saw children who’d been rescued from desperate conditions.

Last year, wanting to do what I could to help, I ran a birthday sale here on Aliventures. I thought we might just about raise enough to sponsor a baby in the baby home. We raised $600 by my birthday (December 12th): more than enough, with extra money to support other children.

Ayshu, who we sponsored, is three years old now, a bright, happy little girl. Here’s the latest photo I have of her:

This year, I’d like to match that $600 again (and hopefully exceed it!) So all three of my Blogger’s Guides (plus the combined pack) are half price again.

That means:

  • $14.50 (instead of $29) for each individual Guide
  • $28.50 (instead of $57) for the three-pack of Guides

I only run a half-price sale once a year, so if you don’t want to wait 12 months, grab them up now!

The sale will end on midnight (Pacific time) on Sunday December 11th – that’s 8am on my birthday, Monday 12th, in the UK. 🙂
