And they are, as Myleene puts it, "bonkers".
Email one (all names have been changed):
Jane and Hannah would prefer a class birthday gift for their daughters this year. Sarah would like a kindle and Lola a desk (very studious choices!!) so if you would like to join in, please can i collect a suggested £10 from you before the party on Feb 9th. If you prefer to send £ via an envelope in your daughters school bag, marked for Jane/me, that works too. I will pass on a voucher and card to each at the party.
Thanx and no obligation of course.
Further to Karen's email earlier today about a group collection for Joy, I just wanted to say (to those of you who want to contribute), that I'll be around every morning next week at drop-off if you want to give me some money. From memory, about £10 seems to be a popular amount, but feel free to give what you like or indeed, to give your own gift. I will collate the cash and give it to Sara together with a card with names from everyone who's contributed. The party's on the 9th Feb.
To which Myleene replied:
For Avas birthday, she has requested a real, live Unicorn.
I will be collecting Unicorn money via her book bag, in the playground or at www.getwhatyouregivenandendthismadness.com.
(Additionally I'd like a Ferrari and Leonardo DiCaprio, so by all means, do feel obligated to contribute to this too).
If you don't wish to, please don't feel any pressure from the countless emails I intend to follow this up with and clog your inbox.
Love and thanks!!
