Hello! 

If you're reading this, the chances are we have a very good friend in common. Adele is one of the most big-hearted, tireless, boundlessly energetic people I know, and frankly she could do with our help.

When your doctor tells you to take two weeks off so your over-worked body can fight a vicious bout of tonsillitis, your first response shouldn't have to be "I can't afford to!" Nobody can get the rest they need to make a proper recovery if they're stressing about lost earnings.

Why have I taken it on myself to bother you all about it? Well, largely because my world's a better place for having an Adele in it, and I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in thinking that! 

But once upon a time that person who couldn't afford time off was me. I was a dancer, reliant upon an endless circus of performances and classes just to make ends meet. Not being able to afford two weeks off cost me 12 years of my life, and an awful lot more besides. 

We didn't have social media back then, though. We do now, and I'm damned if I'll sit by while someone as generous-natured as Adele needs our help!

Even one pound from each of her friends could make the difference between two weeks off stressed to the max about money, or two weeks off relaxing and recuperating. More, and she'd actually have some kind of buffer to take off the pressure.

I appreciate many of us don't have much in the way of cash to spare. So thank you, in advance, for whatever you can give to get our Adele back on fighting form. We all know she's worth it!
