I know I normally have a naturally bleak outlook on life, but sometimes I do see positive things. One of the people I follow on Tumblr and Twitter, a fellow member of the CumberCollective (fans of Benedict Cumberbatch) and all around wonderful person, is currently raising money for the Mental Health Foundation and I thought I would promote this cause here on my wordpress page as well. I know I don’t normally promote stuff on this blog, but some things should be sometimes.
Like so many in the Collective, “CumberNinjas” was so inspired by the giving and charitable nature of Benedict Cumberbatch, who always insists to his fans that instead of lavishing him with gifts to instead put that money to a good cause. Many of his fans do just that by raising money for various charities in his honor, especially around his birthday. And what a fine birthday present it is to have people doing nice things for others because of you.
