We were away mid-week visiting Edinburgh, combining work with pleasure. It’s a great city at any time of year. We came back to find this letter waiting for us: it put a big smile on my face:
Michelle is a young American I got to hear of via WordPress. As a supporter of the Bike and Build Charity she will be riding across the United States to help create social housing in the states she passes through. I had not heard of Bike and Build and I think it is just the greatest of causes – truly inspiring on many levels. You can visit Michelle’s blog and read more of her story in her own words. I am sure you will leave impressed – as did I. You might even consider leaving a wee donation to help her in her fund-raising. We oldies need to cherish the enthusiasms and idealism of the young: sooner or later the world is going to need them.
