So this post is going to be slightly different from my usual ones! I wanted to let you all know about an extremely cool project that my friend Elle is currently taking part in, and you might just be able to help!
Trekstock is a youth charity which aims to provide support to young people living with cancer. They pride themselves upon finding creative ways to raise the funds which are essential to help them continue their fantastic work. My friend Elle is currently involved in one of their projects, Trekstock Trade Up. The project is running as a competition for an internship as well as a fundraising campaign; I think Elle would be perfect for the internship and I’d love to tell you all about the Trekstock Trade Up too!
It’s all started with this virtual badge. The idea of the Trade Up is to start with a little item (i.e. the badge) and swap it for something a little bigger and more valuable. Then, that new item is traded for something even more valuable. This continues for three weeks – the item that Elle ends up with at the end will then be sold on eBay and 100% of the proceeds will go to the Trekstock charity! How cool is that?
I’m going to help Elle’s mission by offering up an item to trade – to find out what it will be, keep an eye on the blog that she has set up specifically for the Trade Up project! http://www.ellestrekstocktradeup.blogspot.com/
If you would like to keep updated and perhaps participate in the swap yourself, check out Elle’s blog – to get in touch, you can…

It’s an absolutely fantastic charity and project – good luck to Elle, I can’t wait for my item to feature in the trade! For those wondering…yes, it will be beauty-related!
