One donation, twice the impact
One week to double your donations to help us be there for more children like Charlie.
*49,000 children and young people are living in the UK with life-shortening or life-threatening health conditions, the number is rising. Children like Charlie, who spent his first Birthday in hospital with his family by his side, unsure of the challenges that lay ahead. Nobody can predict what tomorrow has in store but JUMP are dedicated to being there to make memories to cherish.
This year, JUMP Children's Charity is taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge to raise money for our "Life limited, still a life" appeal. This means that for one week, from midday on December the 3rd to midday December the 10th, any donations you make will be doubled.
What is the Big Give Christmas Challenge ?
The Big Give is the UK's biggest online match funding campaign. It connect's corporate sponsors with participating charities. For 7 days, starting on #GivingTuesday, it offers individual supporters of participating charities that opportunity to have their donations doubled on theBigGive.org.uk
Why the Life Limited, Still a life appeal ?
The need for our support grows year on year. We are passionate in believing that every child should have the opportunity to make memories to cherish with their loved ones. Families should be afforded the time to reflect on the wonderful milestones they have reached and the mammoth challenges they have overcome.
The families we support lead incredibly isolated lives, with everyday being centric to the healthcare needs of their child, time to have fun and to socialise is non-existent.
We rely on the generosity of people like you to help us be there to support up to 100 children and their families each year. By supporting our Life limited, still a life appeal, your money will be used to fund JUMP memory making events in Cheshire and Manchester in 2020.
These events bring children and their families together for a day that's focused on having fun ! Each party brings families and their children together under one roof, to enjoy singing, dancing, crafts and activities. To smile, to laugh and to make friends. Each family receives a JUMP memory making photo-shoot and is gifted with a bespoke keepsake memory book of their day.
