Looks like this article was written a while ago. Some of the ideas and techniques described may now be outdated. Just sayin’.

Early Saturday morning I received the sad news of Kirsty Howard's passing. Kirsty was the figurehead and champion for The Kirsty Club campaign to expand and improve Francis House Childrens' Hospice in Manchester. DesignKarma is proud be an honorary patron of the campaign, and to have worked with Kirsty and the campaign team over the last decade, helping raise over £7.5 million to improve the capacity and facilities at the hospice. Everyone who met Kirsty came away with a sense of 'what can I do to help?' and she'll be sorely missed.

Although Kirsty is gone the campaign must continue, as there are many more children and families who can benefit hugely from this incredible hospice. If you can spare some money, time, resources or skills, please head over to today.
