Charity Giveaway of RHS Flower Show Tickets‏

I was sent an email yesterday from the people at World Vision the world’s largest, international children’s charity. They have a project called Grow Hope'to raise awareness of Ethiopia’s transformation from drought to lush vegetation.Of course the title really just clicked with me as isn't that what I am doing through ecotherapy? Isn't what we are all doing by growing our own in the first place? Though lucky for us it hasn't all been out of sheer desperation, to basically survive.


'This year marks the 30 year anniversary of the 1984 Ethiopian famine, the worst in living memory. Thanks to the generosity of supporters, World Vision was able to work with local people and organisations to help turn the Antsokia Valley, which was hardest hit by drought, into what is now a lush, green oasis. Hope of a future free from hunger has grown into a reality. Families are able to feed themselves on the crops they grow and can enjoy life once more.'

World Vision will be exhibiting gardens at garden shows throughout this summer to mark the anniversary of the famine and celebrate the transformation of Antsokia. Plus, they are offering an exclusive chance to win a pair of RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show tickets.

All you have to do is register for a Grow Hope pack, on the World Vision website: http://www.worldvision.org.uk/growhope/competition 

For every person who signs up, World Vision will give vulnerable families in Zambia orange maize seeds, rich in Vitamin A, to ensure children can live a life free from the fear of hunger. And you will receive fresh Ethiopian coffee to share with a friend and some beautiful calendula seeds.

Well love and hugs -
Carrie
