#DotsRaiseLots for RNIB.

My own dad, now sadly passed away, lost his eye when he was a kid to a toy bow and arrow. It affected him greatly in his early life and he was bullied about it. He used to joke that as a fast bowler his glass eye would sometimes pop out and land on the cricket pitch during his more ferocious deliveries! He never complained, but it must have been hard living the majority of his life with one eye.

So it goes without saying, I’m really excited to be working with the Royal National Institute of Blind People! RNIB is the leading UK charity supporting people with sight loss.

Making bead bracelets to raise money for RNIB - dots raise lots

You’ll soon start to see the hashtag #DotsRaiseLots and it’s because braille has an extremely positive impact on the lives of the people the charity works closely with.

It’s a brilliant idea for a fundraising campaign because there are so many fun activities you can do with dots as a theme. You could even host a bead bracelet making party like we did…

If you’d like to get involved, here are some top tips: https://www.rnib.org.uk/dots-raise-lots


  1. Thanks for sharing your dad's story. It seams to me you and your son had a lot of fun and for a great cause too. I'm sure your dad would be proud, your efforts go a long way to helping people in a similar situation to that of your father.

  2. What an appealing story! It's really nice to read it. For best crowd fund raising, stories can be told to encourage people for donation and givetaxfree.org is there for making donations taxfree.

  3. All centennial celebrations have ended in Indy 500 2017. The Indianapolis 500 Live race will take place on May 28, but the field will be officially established this weekend, with qualifying on Saturday and Sunday.

    Saturday's qualifying rounds will determine the Fast 9, and the nine drivers will eliminate him for the first nine positions on the field on Sunday after the No. 10 to No. 33 positions are determined.

    Both qualifying days can be viewed on ABC or via Indy 500 Live streaming.
