A just 4 years old, Charlie Doherty first asked people to give money to worthy causes instead of gifts for his birthday when he saw the effects of the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami on television. Since then Charlie from Crawley has been fundraising for Scottish-based charity Mary’s Meals and has raised just over £15,000.

This Fidgit looks at the journey he’s had to this point and highlights that it is never too early to make a difference.

Jolanta is an aspiring artist and she studies filmmaking using computer technologies at UCA Rochester.  Here she tells us about how listening to advice from a previous Fidgit, David Shillinglaw, payed off exceedingly giving her great confidence and a number of exciting opportunities as she prepares to graduate.

We all need small wins to keep us going, for it is these victories that give us that push we sometimes need when pursuing our goals. Storybox celebrates the small victories that we often overlook from day to day, serving as a forum for sharing experiences and lessons learned.

Strength grows out of struggle and your successes are based on how well you overcome your struggles in life. Struggle is a clever device through which nature compels humanity, which encourages you to develop, expand and progress. It’s either an ordeal or a magnificent experience, depending on your attitude toward it. Your success is impossible, sometimes unthinkable even, without it.

In Kevin’s case, he has had to meet and overcome many struggles in life and the important lessons are the ones he learned from and grew from. This Fidgit seeks to highlight his attitude toward struggles as well as the education he received from each and every  encounter.
