Default Idea to raise money

We both gave up smoking 22 days ago

We are saving the money we would have spent on cigarettes in a piggy bank and donating it to the charity. The Purkal Youth Development Society.

So we have an idea... we are not for one minute suggesting that you all do the same BUT.. if you smoked say, 20 a day and for arguments sake you cut down to just 19 in 20 days you would have saved yourself roughly £4.50.

If you then put that £4.50 away by the end of the 48 hour chat you will have a grand total of just over £30.00... which you can then send to Quids 4 Kids [img]graemlins/love.gif[/img]

its just a suggestion ... let us know what you think [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img]

big love
Tina & Ness xx

Thats sounds a great idea!Im now into my 3rd week of giving up.So far its been pretty easy,apart from I have no nails left!Thought I might have given in today as I some nice person decided to break into my car last night,so wot I saved already has had to pay for my glass.Think I will put the rest of the money I save in a jar and donate it to Q4Kids.Good luck and keep up the no smoking
