Many incredibly lovely people have been in touch to ask how they can best support me as I continue through this cancer slog.
In truth, I’m currently at one of the most precarious times in my life. The last few months have been utterly focused on beating this cancer, and it has taken a lot from me; physically, mentally, emotionally and financially.
It’s the last point which I’m most uncomfortable asking for assistance with, but needs must – and I’m not even asking for your help for nothing. I like to think I’m quite a useful human being, so you can:
Order From my Etsy Store
Price: Listed On Store
Buy something or request a commission from my newly-opened Etsy store, Inclaynations. Each piece is lovingly handcrafted, and 25% of profits go to charity, and I’ll be selling more each month. Win/win huh?
I’ve put 6 pieces up today (29/12) so take a look. Update: wow, sold out in two hours! Thank you so much.
Commission CV Design
Price: £15 – £50
It’s a new year, and for many that will mean focusing on achieving bigger and better things in 2019. To make your mark, why not treat yourself to a new CV? My skills have been honed over many years of working in both design and in Human Resources, and I will work with you to design, draft and fill a CV that will get you noticed. Just pop me a message to discuss in more detail. In the meantime, here are just a few examples of my work:
Hire Me To Write
Price: £0.15 a word
In case you can’t tell, I simply love to write. Having worked as a freelance writer for the last five years, and as a columnist for DIVA Magazine since 2017 (and nominated for their ‘Journalist of the Year’ Award 2018), you can rest assured that hiring me to produce content for you means investing in someone who will not only draw upon years of experience, but also throw their heart into the content they’re producing.
Prior to my diagnosis, I was running CerianJenkins.com, on which you can view many examples of my work. Further samples include this Independent article and this Huffington Post piece. Just drop me a line to talk if you’re interested.
Enlist My Baking Skills
Price: Varies Depending on Project
I’ve spent a lot of the last few months in the kitchen and, whilst I’m still learning, I’ve loved refining my baking skills, including in vegan baking (like the Oreo cake below!). I’d be happy to take some commissions if you live nearby in the Bath/Bristol area. You can talk to me about any ideas you have by sending me a message.
Donate Towards Costs and Upkeep
If you still want to help out but don’t really have a need for anything mentioned above, then I’d be really chuffed if you’d ‘buy me a coffee’ (which really means contributing to the upkeep of my website and helping towards the many expenses tied to a cancer diagnosis) by donating here: https://paypal.me/CerianJenkins.
Tesco may have said it first, but it’s true; every little helps. Anything you can spare assists me in coping financially at a time when I can’t work, and costs are creeping up. Thank so very much if you can contribute, but if not then no worries – I’m just amazed anyone read this far!
