From June 2021 I decided to make one donation per month at the end of the month starting with The Cup of Kindness for the Lady Ratlings. July 2021 The Bethany Children's Trust.

11 In taste tests it has been proven that a drink that is drunk from a beautiful mug will taste extra special…Every mug is designed with love, ergo get ready for some pretty special drinks but maybe what a Simply BE more mug will do is encourage you to be in the moment and really take the time to drink the drink…

This is sure to have a huge effect on the recipient…
Is the real cost £2.50 or is it actually priceless? As of July 2021 the Be more amA-Zing card has the A-Z of greatness integrated.

39 Simply Be More T shirts are modelled by REAL women, women who are beautiful inside and out.

48 You are an integral piece of the mosaic that makes the dream a reality to create a simply be more movement where people respond to the call of nature and their own hearts to Simply Be More than the limits society and even we daily put on ourselves.

50 Simply Be More would love you to purchase an item, after all it is a business, but in truth the most important thing is that you spent time reading this and that you may have taken something away and that maybe a seed has been sown that you are truly amA-Zing and that we dwell in possibility and the only limits are the ones we put on ourselves.
51 As with all websites, web traffic is registered so that the site owner knows how many visits there are per week/hour/day etc.
I have committed to say a simple prayer for everyone who visits this site saying "May this person and their loved ones be safe, happy and at peace this day and always." We have no idea how powerful prayers can be...and you know what...it can't hurt! Namaste.
52 From Simply Be More HQ to the nearest Post Office is a minimum 5.5 mile run, so, to save the planet and to help me train for a marathon in October, I have committed to running all your orders to the post office. Please help me get fit!!!
