miles for charity

Hello loves!
Using Harry as an inspiration and to celebrate his birthday we created this project on twitter to spread love!
Ways you can be a part of the project:
Going to orphanages, giving food to homeless people and animals, donating money (or using apps like Charity Miles that convert the miles that you walked to charities or some games that do the same thing - links are going to be on our profile), free hugs… Really anything that you do to be nice, be good and help others would be amazing.
You can submmit pictures and videos of yourself doing these things to our DM on twitter (@benicetpeople and @benicetpeopleTR) throughout January and beginning of February. On Harrys birthday we will use the tag #BeNiceToPeople to divulge our work.
If you need advice, support or just someone to talk to curious cat us (@benicetpeople).
Please check this out, it would be amazing if you could help in any way. If you have any doubts please contact us on Twitter.
All the love always.

Ok this whole gif thing might be getting out of hand… hopefully that shaky cam doesn’t make anyone dizzy. I traded shifts with a coworker and worked earlier in the day today. This is especially good because I have to work at 4:30am tomorrow which is pretty much my nightmare… uggggh mornings. But that gave me the afternoon to chill out and get a run in. I’m worried about over doing it and my feet have been feeling pretty sore, so I set out to do a slow, easy run. I ended up doing 4 miles and thought about going further, but today was supposed to be easy! It’s just SO nice out. 

I don’t know if it’s the weather or my increase in meds, or my actually getting out and running more, or a combination of all 3, but I have been in a pretty good mood the last few days. I have more energy, I’m not wanting to stay in bed all day. I definitely procrastinate getting moving, but I don’t have the urge to just wrap myself in a blanket and not move all day. If you are struggling, PLEASE talk to your doctor and talk about medication and see if it would help you. Getting the meds right can make a world of difference. I’m definitely feeling it.  

Now I’m just gonna chill for a while and try to go to bed as early as possibly for that ridiculously early morning tomorrow. Yuck!!!

New Video! Got so many requests for a new whats on my phone vlog and wanted to share some of my favorite apps with you guys! ♥♥♥

If you play Pokémon Go:

There’s an app called Charity Miles which allows you to raise money towards a charity of your choice just by walking, running, or biking. So for example, if you have an egg that needs 10 km to hatch, you can raise money for your charity at the same time! If you’re going to be walking anyway, it only takes a few more clicks to do some good while you’re at it.

Okay, listen up
This app raises money for charity just by you walking, running, biking etc. Every mile earns money for a charity of your choice from a list of many, and you don’t have to just stick with one charity either. I think everyone who has access to this app should download it, think how much money would be raised if people have it open in the background while they’re out and about.
Please can you reblog this to raise more awareness of this app as I only just found out about it today. Thank you.

Happy Fourth of July everyone, and for my non celebrators Happy Monday!

I got my lazy ass out of the house and kicked that Georgia heat and humidity in the ass.

Let it be known I did bitch about it (while in progress) to @grandenoirceur but I never gave up, and that’s the important part. 💪🏻

Now it’s time to avoid Starbucks, my usual Sunday treat when I go for a hike, and go home and attempt my first iced coffee!

Maybe when I get back home I’ll do another mile before heading inside? 🐯(insert Rawr!)

I think Miles stole the show with Bad Romance

Lil psa for Pokemon go users.

If you’re anything like me, since downloading Pokemon go your whole life has been consumed by it. I’ve walked so much I have blisters on both of my feet, it’s fucking fun, but, while you’re walking you can do some good. There’s free charity apps that donate money to a charity of your choice. For example, the one I use is called Charity Miles. You choose your charity, and you walk, run, or bike and for every mile they donate a certain amount of money. Do some good while you catch Pokemon!!

I forgot to post yesterday (I took a rest day the day before) but I did go on a walk! My friend and I walked all over the mall, and then I did a dog walk later in the evening. I didn’t grab screenshots for Charity Miles, but it was just about 2.5 miles combined. Today I went to the store and got more hooks for my medal display. Now it has another row! Excuse the scrapes on the wall, they are leftover from when I moved my bed ages ago. The paint needs a touch-up pretty badly. 

Tomorrow morning is the Hot Chocolate run, so I’ll have another medal to add to the collection! Yay! I’m a bit nervous about the hills, but I feel like if I just keep reminding myself that I JUST did a half, so I can rock this 15k!

War veteran posts defiant pictures after having her limb amputated
Kirstie Ennis, who walked nearly the length of Britain to help raise £250,000 for Prince Harry’s troops’ charity, has showed true grit and posted a series of defiant pictures online.

She is the wounded war veteran who stole the hearts of a nation, and the admiration of a Prince, by bravely completing a 1,000-mile charity trek – despite suffering agony with a badly injured leg.

Now Kirstie Ennis, who walked nearly the length of Britain to help raise £250,000 for Prince Harry’s troops’ charity, has again proved her true grit by undergoing a traumatic amputation – and posting a series of defiant pictures online.

The Mail on Sunday can reveal that Harry has been in daily contact with the 24-year-old since the operation to remove her lower left leg on Monday.

It is the 39th operation she has endured since surviving a helicopter crash in Afghanistan in 2012.

Miami-born Kirstie, who first met Harry in 2013 at his Warrior Games event in Colorado, posted the series of pictures as social media updates to document her recovery for friends and family.

The first picture, described as ‘A creative start to the send-off for my leg’, was taken just before the operation and shows her posing seductively in a red bikini.

Speaking exclusively to The Mail on Sunday last night, Kirstie said: ‘I chose the red outfit because it was just something fun and playful. I didn’t want anything too serious.

It is the 39th operation she has endured since surviving a helicopter crash in Afghanistan in 2012.

Miami-born Kirstie, who first met Harry in 2013 at his Warrior Games event in Colorado, posted the series of pictures as social media updates to document her recovery for friends and family.

The first picture, described as ‘A creative start to the send-off for my leg’, was taken just before the operation and shows her posing seductively in a red bikini.

Speaking exclusively to The Mail on Sunday last night, Kirstie said: ‘I chose the red outfit because it was just something fun and playful. I didn’t want anything too serious.

‘I wanted to show how I looked before surgery and I wanted to celebrate everything my foot and lower limb did for me.

‘Initially when doctors told me that I would be losing my leg I was concerned with body image, which is quite shallow.

‘I wanted to show that with or without my leg, I am still beautiful.’

Harry is said to be completely in awe of Kirstie. Sources say he would certainly have visited her in hospital on Monday if he wasn’t committed to charity work in South Africa.

Their close bond was cemented last month when Kirstie walked, against medical advice, for 1,000 miles from Scotland to London to raise money for Harry’s charity Walking With The Wounded.

Even with the support of a £10,000 brace, Kirstie was in constant pain and joked at the time that Harry didn’t dare to complain about his aching knees during the trek, because he knew she would give him a fierce ribbing.

When she reached the finish line at Buckingham Palace she was pictured in a tender embrace with the Prince and it was then, she says, she finally felt ready for the operation.

‘I knew it was time,’ she said last night. ‘By postponing my surgery [to take part in the trek], I was just prolonging the inevitable. I was looking forward to the surgery so that I could move on with my life.

‘Prince Harry has been very supportive. It makes this all a bit easier, knowing that there are people out there who believe in me.’

Kirstie was a gunner in a US Marines Sikorsky helicopter when it crash-landed. Her machine gun smashed into her face, and she suffered serious injuries to her legs, arms, brain and spine.

Harry is due to host the second Invictus Games – his annual Olympics-style competition for wounded veterans – in May, and Kirstie wants to be there.

She said: ‘I am doing extremely well and am quite optimistic that this recovery process will be a breeze. I plan to compete in a snowboard competition towards the end of the snow season, and am looking forward to seeing Harry when I compete in the Invictus Games.’

Hey everyone,

We’re all walking more because of Pokemon Go.
Theres an app called Charity Miles where it tracks your miles, and donates money to a charity of your choice based on how far you walk or bike.

Its quick and easy, and since we’re already walking, I thought this would be a good way for the Pokemon Go community to help out!

Please reblog and get the word out! 💙💚
