Double your impact this Christmas
Tom’s Trust is taking part in The Big Give this year to raise much-needed funds for children with brain tumours and their families over the Christmas period.
The Big Give is the UK’s number one match funding platform. The organisation specialises in bringing charities, philanthropists and the public together to multiply their impact. Each year The Big Give runs the Christmas Challenge, an annual match funding campaign which raises millions of pounds for good causes.
As part of the Christmas Challenge, Tom’s Trust has one week to raise as much as possible, with every penny raised being matched by The Big Give to double our donations – and double our impact. Through our generous supporters and corporate partners we are aiming to raise £5,000 which will double to £10,000.
If we raise £10,000 then 120 children across the UK can be supported over the festive period. Just £34 can fund one hour of mental health support for these families.
Many children we help will be facing a Christmas in hospital or away from loved ones. They may be missing out on enjoyable moments with their classmates at school in the run-up to Christmas while enduring medical treatments. Tom’s Trust’s clinical psychologists give children and their families the space to talk and the support they need over what can be a lonely time of year for them.
Whatever you can give will be greatly appreciated – and you’ll get an even warmer feeling knowing that whatever you donate will have double the impact for Tom’s Trust’s children. Please donate from Tuesday 30th November to Tuesday 7th December 2021 on Tom’s Trust’s page on The Big Give website and share our Christmas Challenge campaign to others so we can achieve our Christmas wish of helping as many children as possible over the festive season and the New Year.
Seven Christmas Wishes
Our campaign alongside The Big Give is called ‘Seven Christmas Wishes’. We’ll be sharing a Christmas wish every day on our social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) for the week of the Christmas Challenge. These wishes will come from children and parents we support, as well as our clinical psychologists. The aim is to encourage supporters to generously donate, so they can see the impact their money will have on families across the UK.
