Can You Help Build A Make A Difference Pledge Wall Across The Country ?


Can You Help Us Build A  Make A Difference Pledge Wall Across The Country ? .
Our Make A Difference Tour started last year with 187 talks across Hospitals ,Universiies,Colleges,work places and in our commuinites 
And our tour continues this year picking up where we left of at the end of 2014 

My hopes and dream is to have pledges from every town every city across the country ,letting people know that they matter,sharing the great passion of people that "no matter where you work no matter what you're role you / we will play our part in making a difference to the lives and experiences of the people we meet "

Over this tour I have had the great privilege to meet so many amazing, caring,inspiring people IN PERSON on my tour across the country on twitter via our Dementia Carer voices Blog and my own TommyOnTour blog. You can read the  3000, personal pledges  made to date below 

I have been overwhelmed by the kindness of people and have had many emotional journeys home late at night from talks thinking back to all that happened each day; the people I have met,the pledges that have been made , the stories I have heard and the great initiatives so many people have shared.

There are far too many people to mention in person - this blog piece might never end if I tried!
For me caring is truly all about people and relationships - it’s always people who make the biggest difference of all. 

Pledges can be submitted via emailtwitter or on the blog site, and are also collected at every talk. We would very much appreciate it if you would promote this campaign; the talks and our films and encourage people to reflect on what they can do and how they can make a difference
