COUNTDOWN TO BIG GIVE – MIDDAY NOVEMBER 7TH
As we approach Christmas many of us think of spending time with our friends and family. Perhaps we are thinking about the year to come and what 2022 may bring for us. It’s a time when we can enjoy optimism about how things are going to improve, particularly with everything else which has gone on. Child trafficking survivors are no different.
As we look forward to 2022 with optimism, we want the young trafficking survivors we support to enjoy a time of year which can be difficult; being away from home, without their family and with many things in their lives being uncertain. It’s not just about Christmas, it’s about the future. A future which child trafficking survivors can build themselves with help and support. Their voices are important, and we want them to be heard. It’s about them having the confidence to voice their opinions, to discuss not just where they’ve come from, but where they want to be.
We support them, but to do that we need you to support us. There is so much to be positive about. There’s so much to look forward to. There’s so much which is important and means the world, but there’s always a journey needed to get there.
The Big Give campaign makes a real difference. It is a simple way of seeing your donation doubled. It works like this:
- We have two “champion donors”. Between them they have created a match funding pot of £4,000.
- This will be used to match every pound donated by you, through the campaign website, between midday November 30th and midday December 7th.
- Only funds donated during this period are matched though (up to £4,000 in total). So, if we raise £1,000 from your donations, then add on the £1,000 from the pot, we get £2,000 to put towards helping children and young people who have been trafficked. That’s why your donation is so important. By donating you don’t just see your donation doubled, you also ensure that we are able to access as much of the funds in the match pot as possible.
This Christmas, please save the date and support us in meeting our target.
