Colourful Mind

I’ve started my first fund-raising page in support of the mental Health Charity Mind. For it, I’ve donated a 100 of my colourful post cards and 100% of the funds raised will go to the charitable cause. So far, it has reached 30% of the target and I really hope for this to increase by […]
