Fantastic Four …. all thanks to Archie!

Four specific charities are benefitting from the birth of the royal baby as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex requested no cards or gifts but for donations to their chosen organisations. These charities only found out that they had been selected when an Instagram post told them and since that date they have been inundated with gifts, donations and other items. Not only by gaining from donations, but by the royals mentioning these charities, has meant that their Instagram followers have gone viral with numbers now following their work that would otherwise never heard of them. The Little Village website actually states that they have had so many donations that they can’t cope at the moment with everything so are just asking for specific items. This goes to show how the endorsement of the Royal family makes such a difference. Two charities are in the UK, one in America and the fourth in South Africa.  These charities are Little Village, The Lunchbox Fund, Well Child and Baby2Baby. Good news is that so many under privileged children will benefit from one baby that will certainly be privileged and what a great way of helping those in certainly less fortunate areas.

Banana Crumble would like to congratulate The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on their birth of baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

What a great week for Harry and Meghan…

This must certainly be a week to remember for Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex. They started their tour to Australia, opened the Invictus Games on the 20th October and also announced to the world that they are expecting their first child in the spring of 2019.

The Invictus Games is taking part in Sydney between the 20th and 27th October 2018. On their website it states:

The Invictus Games use the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women.

The Sydney event is the 4th Invictus Games to take place and was opened by Prince Harry at the iconic location of Sydney Harbour and the Opera House. The games will host over 500 competitors and features 11 different sports. At the closing ceremony of the 2017 games in Toronto, Prince Harry challenged everyone to do something to effect change in lives or in communities. He certainly has inspired so many people and the Invictus Games must surely be one of his greatest achievements.

Prince Harry just seems to have a natural way with people be it young or old, he breaks barriers with people and there are often stories where people say he stayed and chatted rather than keep to strict time protocol.

If only more of us could spare a few seconds to chat and to do something positive. Here at Banana Crumble we are trying to spread the Good News and to try and inspire others to achieve their full potential and focus on the positive rather than the negative.
