Thanks Barb, I have already signed this. The C.B.M. is the charity that I think is absolutely WONDERFUL and I make sure I support it, as they give sight back to countless numbers of people in the poorest countries and are concerned with helping children and people with disabilities, who otherwise are the ones who just get left to die, after a natural disaster. I would recommend anyone supporting them!
