Sparks Charity

Helloo. I know I usually post about beauty, and occasionally fashion, but today I'm posting about something a little different.

Some of you may have heard about the charity Sparks, and some of you may not have done.
Basically, they are a leading medical research charity. They are dedicated to pioneering new research into conditions that affect mums-to-be, and their little ones.

Sparks have just launched a new campaign, their first in fact! This campaign aims to raise awareness for children's medical research.  Currently over 3000 babies die before their first birthday every year in the UK. This is such a ridiculously high number, a number that could be dramatically reduced if the research done was more advanced and wider spread.

"Sparks Chief Executive John Shanley explains, “The aim of this campaign is to make people aware of the need for more funding into conditions and disabilities affecting babies and children. Almost all of the current UK healthcare spend is for the benefit of adults, but much of this spend could be avoided if more was done in the early years of life.”

The campaign's website page is here. If you would like to make a donation you can do so here.

There are so many ways for you to get involved. You can join Sparks on Facebook and Twitter, or talk about Sparks on your blog, like I have done.

Whilst the campaign is ongoing, I shall blog about it here and there, you can too :)

You can find out even more by watching the short video too:
