Wish List Mondays #43 - Think Pink

There exists a kind of 'friend' present on everybody's Facebook; you met them once or twice at a party about 8 years ago, probably had quite a good night, and then never saw them again - apart from on your News Feed. Simply put, they are 'Somebodies That You Used To Know'. Over recent years, I've been pretty diligent about having regular clear-outs of these anomalies, but there are two boys I've never quite been able to trash. Their names are Luke and Jamie. I met them on a ski trip when I was 16. They were 15, and complete shits. But as I'm writing this, they're halfway across the Atlantic in a souped-up rowing boat, the two youngest men ever to attempt such a feat. And they're doing it in the name of Breast Cancer Care. 

Now I have to admit, I've never been one to pay much attention to friends' and acquaintances' virtual charity muggings - demanding you to sponsor their morning walk for No-One-Gives-a-Shit Aid. But these two guys, who I never really knew, are an absolute inspiration. Not only have they raised over £160,000 for Breast Cancer Care, they've also given a new face to what has previously been a relatively mature, female-centric charity. At this point, they've been at sea nearly 7 weeks, updating their Facebook Page with honest and moving posts on their gruelling endeavour. If you can, please donate whatever you can afford to their Just Giving page. You can find out a bit more about the boys and their journey through their Website.

As a small act of appreciation for the way two teenage brats morphed into inspirational young men, I'm dedicating the first Wish List of 2014 to pink, the official colour of Breast Cancer Care.
