Dido fans’ £1,600 Oxfam birthday gift
At the end of last year, the fine folks at the Official Dido Message Boards decided to celebrate Dido’s birthday by donating to Oxfam. Their original aim was to raise £500, but thanks to some amazing generosity, the total at www.justgiving.com/happybirthdaydido currently stands at a whopping £1,600.
Says Dido: I want to thank of all of you for being so generous and donating to oxfam for my birthday! That was such a great thing to do and the money will be used so well by oxfam. This was the best birthday present. Thankyou. I was thinking today that I love this quote from mother theresa: ‘the needs are great, and none of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love and together we can do something wonderful’.
