Master Crafted Miniatures isn’t holding a Black Friday sale. Instead, the proceeds from all sales this Friday will be donated to the Anthony Nolan charity, fighting against blood cancer and working to improve the lives of those affected.
I know a family whose little boy, George, has been fighting for the last couple of years. With the support of his family, blood donations and the wonderful staff of the NHS, he had beaten it back. Recently, however, they were given the terrible news that his leukaemia has returned. This means he has a long, hard fight ahead of him. Charities like Anthony Nolan make a real difference to people in his situation.
There are many ways in which each of us can make a difference. Donation is the easiest, and there are several great charities to which you can donate, but there are other things you can do which are even more important:
Give blood. Whilst you’re there, get them to test you for platelet donation, as few of us have high enough platelet counts to do this. Register as a stem cell donor. You may never be called upon but, if you are, you will be saving a life.
So, if you buy through the MCM store on Friday 25th of November, you’ll get yourself some stuff for our funny little hobby, and help save lives at the same time. If I have nothing you want, try to donate. But, whatever else you do, register:
