    Default Cosy N Dry Charity Raffle - Win 100 of AB clothing!

    I just wanted to share the news that Cosy N Dry, a UK AB clothing website, is having a raffle. Raffle tickets cost 1 and the winner wins 100 of AB clothing, second prize is 75 and third prize 50 (of AB clothing).

    I wouldn't normally share something like this, but all of the money raised goes to help Margaret's (she owns Cosy N Dry) niece, who is very ill. This could be a great way to have a chance to win some AB-wear for just a few pounds, and if you don't win your money will at least go to a good charitable cause, so I thought this might be of interest to other ABs.

    I have ordered from Cosy N Dry before and always found the quality and service to be impeccable so the opportunity to win 100 worth of clothing is pretty exciting for me. They have a huge range of clothing on offer as well, lots of pretty but expensive party dresses I have been eyeing up. I am in no way affiliated with them though, I just wanted to share this because I think it is for a good cause and a good prize. More information about the raffle can be found on the Cosy N Dry website: Cosy n Dry

    Good luck to anyone who also enters (even though we will be in direct competition!) I have bought a few tickets and am keeping my fingers crossed that I win something - I have already started to try and decide what I would choose with a winning 100 ticket, but I am finding that kind of difficult. What would you guys choose?

    As much as I believe this is in good faith, there isn't much information as to what the money is being spent on. Lots of people get ill, and most don't need help, It's only a handful that do. And whilst the NHS isn't the best, why is it failing her niece, and money able to solve the issue? As much as I understand she wants to respect her privacy particularly on a site of contraversal nature. I just generally find it difficult to give money to a charitable cause without much information as to where the money is going.

    That said, I hope the her niece is off to a quick swift recovery and will be back into good health soon.

    I agree that more information could be given, but I can see why she would want to respect the privacy of her niece and family. However, having worked with children who have life-limiting conditions I can attest that the care and equipment provided by the NHS is not always the best treatment or equipment available, and people often fund raise to raise additional money to help their loved ones, and especially children. The money may not necessarily be used to fund healthcare, but could be used to buy specialist equipment or to offer the child something nice. Usually when people fundraise for poorly children it is because they have been diagnosed with something serious and something which is either life-long, such as a disability, or something which has the potential to be terminal. Although we have the NHS in such situations there often are places where money can buy better healthcare and/or a better quality of life.

    I don't know anything more than I read on the website, but based on my own experience working with poorly children I assumed there were three places where the money might be going:

    1) On private healthcare - to receive treatment either not available on the NHS or to travel to another country to receive treatment not available in the UK.

    2) To buy specialist equipment - wheelchairs, hoists, specialist toys, house conversions etc. Things which might not be provided by the NHS or to buy items of a better quality/ better suited than those provided by the NHS.

    3) To treat the little girl/ give the family some positive memories. Maybe paying for a special holiday or fulfilling a dream of hers, perhaps taking her to Disneyland or swimming with dolphins or to meet a favourite celebrity etc.

    As such it may not be that the NHS is failing the child, but there may still be things the family wants or needs for the child which the NHS cannot or will not provide.

    The NHS provides a generally pretty good service to those who need it. Unfortunately, when it's children you are talking about, it doesn't provide a service for the parents. It's left to support groups to fund some sort of accommodation for parents who need to be close by.

    This is not the worst of it: if you have a disabled adult who needs parental support, you get no help at all. I've been there...

    Hugs,
