"Gratitude means to recognize the good in your life, be thankful for whatever you have, some people may not even have one of those things you consider precious to you (love, family, friends etc.). Each day give thanks for the gift of life. You are blessed." - Unknown
Trekstock is a charity in the United Kingdom whose main goal is to come up with interesting ways of fundraising in order to raise money for cancer research. 

"The Trekstock vision: To help beat cancer through funding research of the highest standard and ensuring all young people have the right and relevant information to make better informed lifestyle choices."

This UK charity began in March 2010 and has since been striving to support young people with cancer by raising funds for research and awareness through "music, fashion and art collaborations, and organized trekking experiences." With advances in technology and treatment, almost three quarters of children, teenagers, and young adults with cancer are successfully treated.

"Trekstock works to provide a platform to combine creative areas of music, fashion and art to target and educate the young, whilst raising awareness and funds towards combating the fight against cancer. Today, this is more relevant than ever."

 Trekstock is currently having a fundraising event with a grand prize: an evening out in London with Harry Styles and Liam Payne from One Direction! All you have to do to enter is make a donation to Trekstock; the more you donate, the more times you are entered to win and the more prizes you get. Here's the basic breakdown:

Fan -- Donate $3 --> 1 entry & a social media picture
Directioner -- Donate $10 --> 4 entries, a thank you video from Harry and Liam, digital signed polaroids of Harry and Liam, & a social media picture
Superstar -- Donate $25 --> 10 entries, all the Directioner prizes & exclusive campaign bracelets

Legend -- Donate $100 --> 40 entries + extra 10, all the World Famous prizes, a Trekstock "Rock Out" tee, a Trekstock badge, & a Twitter follow from @trekstock

You can obviously donate more and I definitely encourage you to! It's for a great cause and the incentives are great too! To learn more about this fundraising event continue here.

Cancer is a terrible disease and I hope that I will be alive when the cure is found! (:
