As you can see from the title for this post the success of my goal to raise donations for the organizations that support mothers who have lost infant children is questionable. In my naivety I thought the enormity of the challenge that I had set myself as a 78 year old would attract a large following, perhaps even going viral. It seems that didn't happen. The result has been a trickle of donations that were received and linked to Hazel's Heroes. Perhaps more donations are on the way from people who are still following this blog. If I were to set a dollar value for the goal I would like to achieve it would be $100.000 and, at the moment, it seems donations so far have reached approximately 1% of that goal. So, with the optimism of an old fool, I will provide the information giving instructions for how to donate and hope that 99,000 donors will all donate $1.00 to either Hazel's Heroes or the Lullaby Trust.
