One week to double your donation.
Be a life-line this Christmas.
*49,000 children and young people are living in the UK with life-shortening or life-threatening health conditions, the number is rising. Nobody can predict what tomorrow has in store but JUMP are dedicated to being there.
This year, JUMP Children's Charity is taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge to raise money for our "A lifeline in a time of need" appeal. This means that for one week, from midday on December the 1st to midday December the 8th, 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 donate to this 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. The Covid-19 pandemic has made life immeasurably hard for JUMP families, pushing them further into isolation than ever before.
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 us, your money will be used to fund a full calendar of JUMP memory making events in 2021, giving JUMP families a much needed life-line in a time of need .
These events bring children and their families together for a day that's focused on having fun ! Each event 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.
You can donate to make a difference to the lives of a family in need via the donate button from midday on #GivingTuesday , the 1st of December when the campaign is live.
Thank you for being the difference this Christmas.
