Russell Howard’s Good News

Russell Howard’s Good News

So it turns out Jack was on Russell Howard’s Good News tonight (BBC3). I’ll be honest, we knew nothing of it until our friend Jo sent us a tweet. I was about to go to bed and I was turning off the computer when TweetDeck, Google Mail and JustGiving went absolutely bonkers.

In the space of 30 mins we have:

  • 70+ new Facebook fans
  • 30+ new Twitter followers
  • 38 donations on our JustGiving website plus the promise of more in the morning
  • Increased our fundraising total by about £300

Big thank you to Russell Howard, Mark Iddon and all the team for a lovely surprise and for helping our cause. Jack, Toby & Noah are all tucked up in bed but I will tell them what happened in the morning. I was so excited I woke up Rose (Mummy), she wasn't happy but was OK once I explained why.

In case you missed the show, here it is on iPlayer–Russell Howard’s Good News (Series 4, Episode 6). Jack is about 2 mins from the end.

Mystery donator takes Jack past £13,000

Just a quick post to say, HURRAH, Jack has now reached an impressive £13,000 in only 38 days (£13,224.52 to be exact).

Thanks to a mystery donator (well, we know who it is), a whopping £238 was deposited into the Sick Kids Friends Foundation bank account today.

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far, our mystery donator and those of you who helped get Jack from £12,000 to £13,000. Since we stopped taking picture requests a couple of weeks ago, raising money has become a lot tougher, so THANK YOU.

However, we still have almost £2,000 to go till we reach our (“last” says Dad, Jack still wants a million) target, so if you are enjoying Jack’s pictures and/or his website and haven’t yet done so, why not donate a couple of pounds to help Jack, help the Sick Kids Friends Foundation. A hospital that cares for his wee brother Noah (11 visits in 23 months and counting), his other brother Toby, himself, and thousands of other boys and girls.

You can go straight to the JustGiving website where you can donate safely and securely.

As always, if you have any questions, feedback or suggestions, please email us at me@jackdrawsanything.com and we will do our best to help.
