Give someone a #BagofLife

So Bad Ass

Which would you choose?

colostomy association bag of life

The Colostomy Association are launching a crowdfunding campaign for Stoma Aid.  You can change the lives of thousands of people with a stoma across the world by helping spread the word about Stoma Aid by pledging a Facebook post or Tweet in our Thunderclap campaign.

Millions of people worldwide have a stoma – where an opening has been made on their abdomen which allows waste to pass out of their body. For these people, a stoma bag is necessary to securely, conveniently and safely collect output from their stoma.

However, thousands of people with a stoma across the world are forced to use tin cans, carrier bags and bits of cloth because they are unable to afford the cost of a stoma bag. In Papua New Guinea there are only two stoma care nurses in the entire country; in the Philippines a single bag costs a week’s wages.

  2. Superb blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m
    completely confused .. Any ideas? Thank you!

  3. I almost never comment, but i did some searching and wound up here Give
    someone a #BagofLife | africandream01. And I do have a couple of questions for you if
    it’s allright. Is it only me or does it look like
    some of these remarks appear like they are left by brain dead folks?

    😛 And, if you are writing at other social sites, I’d like to follow everything fresh you have to post.
    Could you list of every one of your communal pages like
    your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  4. Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re
    working with? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but
    I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m
    looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    • hank you for the wonderful feedback. I hope you will continue to read my blog.

      I would suggest you start with a free blog with WordPress.com or another platform and see how it goes before you spend money to pay for a site. WordPress.com has worked well for me up to now and their templates are very easy to use. Their support staff are also extremely helpful and always willing to go the extra mile for you.

      Good luck with starting your blog.

    of that, that is magnificent blog. An excellent read.
