On Friday 16th November, it was BBC's Children in Need Day!
Children in Need is a UK charity, founded by the BBC, which originally began in 1980.
Olivia and I on CID Day, looking sassy
It raises MILLIONS and MILLIONS every year to aid disadvantaged and ill children, and, in total, has raised an unbelievable
in the past 32 years!
At our school, we had a non-uniform day to raise money, where every student has to bring in £1 as a donation, which already brings the total to over £1000!
I made some crispy cakes with my brother to sell at my dad's work and raised £11.20 (every little helps!).
Pudsey Bear is the leading mascot for Children in Need, and is always emblazoned on all of the fundraising merchandise and promotions. He had quite a transformation in 2007, when the old logo, used from 1986 to 2006, was abolished to make way for the current logo, a brighter, more computerized bear. Sorry, old Pudsey!Here's Olivia, me (ew haha) and our friend Hannah on CIN Day
Not to mention, 32 of the most recognised fashion designers of the WORLD ( think Prada, Louis Vuitton & Gucci..EEP!) teamed together to help raise money for Children in Need by individually creating their own interpretation of Pudsey! Stitched in leather, Swarovzki crystals and patterned velvet, these bears are so stylish, it hurts. My favourites were definitely the Victoria Beckham, Alexander McQueen and LOEWE bears! Too cute! Plus, 19 of the bears raised over £152,000!
As if it could GET any better, here's a clip of the rather wonderful One Direction singing their new single, Little Things, on Children in Need!
Hope you raised LOTS for the SPOTS!
