Top Gossip!


Monday 12 May 2014

It's not often I ask a favour of you, but this one is IMPORTANT... it's a way for you to show that you care about girls in danger on the other side of the world. I'm talking about the 276 schoolgirls from Chibok, Nigeria, who were kidnapped in April by an extremist group who have threatened to sell the girls as slaves.

These girls have done nothing wrong; they are JUST LIKE YOU... can you imagine how frightened they must be feeling now, torn away from their homes and families? We are so far away it may feel like there isn't much we can do to help, but we CAN show that we care.

On my blog-zine, DREAMCATCHER, I have posted a CHALLENGE: for my readers to send in a selfie holding a sign that says #Bring BackOurGirls and also to write a letter to one of the missing girls, whose names are listed on the blog. Send a pic of the letter to me, too; if I get enough, I will make a slideshow of your messages of support and your #BringBackOurGirls selfies. The letters you write may not get to the missing girls, but perhaps a little of your concern and caring will find its way to the captive girls. 

If you want to be extra-awesome, you can get your friends and teachers involved in this project too. You, my readers, are the most amazing people I know. You have so much to give; can you spare five minutes to show the 276 Nigerian schoolgirls that you are thinking of them and praying for their safe return? Click on DREAMCATCHER now and scroll back to find the #BringBackOurGirls post; it will explain more about what you can do.

Thank you... for being awesome, for being YOU.

Hello planet!

Coco here! I’m afraid on top of ALL of the worlds other problems (global warming, saving the pandas…

I could go on!) we’ve also been having a few problems with spam comments – it’s probably just my mental sisters messing about…

But ANYWAY, to post your comment, simply put my first name (Coco) in the box below!

Lots of love,
