Happy Happy Photo Time

First day of collections for those left homeless after the riots in tottenham. HOXTON SQUARE Park was the meeting point. 



Emmy The Great was more than great at helping and organising things in london the last few days.


Alex Wheeler - Diamond Geeza!


Got so much we needed an extra car...



Sam Duckworth and Dan Thompson = Heroes!



and eventually a van!


Thanks to Pearse Grady for sorting out the van!


This 2 and a half year old gave away hi "space monkey pyjamas" !



At the leisure centre in tottenham, such a nice friendly, helpful vibe it brought tears to my eyes 


If you are interested in helping...



2nd Day of collections did not start well. Dropped my bath mat in the bath. bollox

My favourite thing that someone brought


absoulutely gorgeous mama and baby made us cry by being so beautiful inside and out



Inventive donations, handmade vegetarian soap

  2. You're a beautiful person. I would find someway to donate, but I'm in Pennsylvania. I would contribute with money but I'm 16 and lost my job last year and my mom is a school teacher so we will not have any funds until school starts up again. I also have an ulterior motive for writing. I saw you at The Wellmount Theatre, in New Jersey on November 20th 2010. I was so happy because it was my "sweet 16" party, however only my mother and one of my friends could attend. It was THE best birthday ever. Anyway, I am a writer, I love to write I live to write. At that concert you handed out copies of your literary magazine, and I love it so much. I was wondering if there could be some way that I could submit my work to you? I recently had a play that I wrote that was preformed in an off broadway production, and I feel that the subject of my play is something that would be in your lit mag. If not that is alright too. I love you so much.
