Making Home Link Up #34: Raising Money for MS Trust

Welcome to the #MakingHome weekly link up!

Be inspired by posts all about moving house, home decor, DIY, crafts, family activities, recipes, gardening and more. It’s all here under one roof at Mrs Crafty B’s.

Don't forget to join in and link up your own posts. The linky is open from Friday until Tuesday. Find out how to take part at the end of this post. 

This week's post from me is not so much craft or decor related, but the topic is close to my heart. As the day that my sister gets thrown from a plane draws nearer, I wanted to re-share a post I wrote a short while ago: MS: A Personal Account.
Raising Funds for MS Trust

Although it would be amazing to help my sister reach her fundraising target for MS Trust, my primary goal is to raise awareness of MS. This account was written by someone who was diagnosed with MS in 2012 having suffered two relapses, the first being dismissed as a sinus infection and overlooked several times.

I would love nothing more than for you to share this account. If you would like to donate to the MS Trust, then every pound counts and we would very much appreciate your donations (you can do that via the post).

Now back to the inspirations of the #MakingHome crew! Last week, I could not post the link up due to unforeseen circumstances at home so I am sure you have lots to share. 

Don't forget that you can share old posts too so you can join in every week, even if you haven't posted anything new.


Place the #MakingHome badge to the bottom of the post you are sharing (or in your sidebar) using the coding under the image below (get in touch if you have trouble). This helps to direct readers to all participants in the link up.

- Add your link via the blue button at the bottom of this post. Just click 'Add Your Link' and follow the instructions. Your post can be recent or past and you can link up more than once; please just remember to use the badge. You can link up from Friday until Tuesday.

- Visit AT LEAST the two posts in front of you (and as many of the others as you can or would like to). Maybe offer up a comment or two so that we are all feeling the #MakingHome love. Don't forget to include the hashtag so they know where you are visiting from.

- Be sure to tweet @MrsCraftyB using #MakingHome once you have linked up so that I can #RT. your post
