As most of you know, I feel extremely passionate about the Save The Children charity and I volunteer one day a week to work in one of their shops - which I love. So, I was eager to become involved with their current #66cities campaign.

Campaigners all over the U.K. who are representing their cities have been emailing their MPs calling on them to raise the issue in parliament.
2 days before Christmas I sent a letter to my local MP (Mark Tami) and the Chester MP (Stephen Mosley) to raise this issue on behalf of my nearest city.
If you have a spare few minutes, please contact your local MP to make them aware of the charter and also use twitter and Facebook to continue to spread the word for this important campaign. We've seen before the huge impact that the blogging community can have with these campaigns.
If you haven't got time to email your local MP, then PLEASE spare 1 minute to sign the petition
YOU CAN SIGN IT BY CLICKING HERE
and then spread the word on Twitter, Facebook, email, word of mouth, carrier pigeon - do what you must!
I'll be blogging again on return from holiday with an update on a response from the MPs but for now, go forth and continue to spread the word...
