Fund-raising for Forces' Charities
You might have noticed that one of the pledge levels for TGD involves donating a percentage of the proceeds to one of the many charities supporting servicemen and women. It's proved rather popular, and I'm delighted to report that I've already made the first of what will be two donations to the Royal British Legion.
Formed in 1921, the British Legion is a charity providing financial, social and emotional support to members and veterans of the British Armed Forces, their families and dependants. It is also inextricably linked with the concept of remembrance, most visibly through the annual poppy appeal, the first of which was held in the year of the Legion's foundation.
