To be completely honest I wasn't going to be drinking in January anyway in an effort to be healthy, but I've seen that a lot of people are doing this "Dryathalon" so I thought I may as well raise some money while I'm not drinking.
Most people are doing their Dryathalons for Cancer charities, and don't get me wrong I do care about that a lot and like many people, it has affected my family. However with things like "the ice bucket challenge" and the "no make-up selfie challenge", they already have so many people aware of them and donating to them.
In general I care more about animals than people, nothing breaks my heart more than stories about abandoned or mis-treated pets, so I've decided to do my Dryathalon for the RSPCA in Lincoln.
Feel free to donate, I'm not setting a huge goal and I don't want to shove it down peoples throats, but the option's there.
