Anybody here see the story of Martha Payne? 6 weeks ago she started a blog about her school lunch and it’s short comings. It was a minor sensation and I was impressed with her writing and photos. Not bad for a 9 year old girl…
Fast forward to yesterday. Grabbing onto her blog, a newspaper wrote a “Sack the Lunch Ladies” article. Her head teacher pulled her out of math class, into the office and informed her that photography was immediately forbidden in her lunch room.
This mostly gutted the blog she was running and she wrote a “Good Bye” Message on Thursday. Poignantly she pointed out that she only wrote the blog, not the newspaper article… :rolleyes:
One of the causalities she was most upset about was that she had tied her blog to a charitable organization “Mary’s Meals,” which to date she had raised £3,000 for.
Seems Martha is now allowed to take photos at lunch unimpeded and her blog is back in business. Oh yeah… Her charity? Her running total went from £3,000 to £52,834.18 as of right now, in a single day! 750% of her £7,000 goal.
Way to go Martha.
