Every year, the Big Give launches the Christmas Challenge, a unique match- funding event where charities can apply to double their donations during the first week of December. This year, LAFF has made it through to the Challenge, which means during the ‘challenge’ week, December 1st to 8th, every donation received via the Big Give platform will be DOUBLED by our match funders.
How can you get involved?
It’s simple. Either donate directly to LAFF’s Big Give page during the week of the Christmas Challenge (1-8 December 2020), or join one of our Big Givers’ events as they raise money for LAFF. We have a group of fundraisers, across 3 continents, raising money especially for this. Check out their fundraisers HERE. Every penny you donate to them will be processed during the week of the Big Give and DOUBLED. If you’d like to organise an event or take part in a sponsored challenge yourself, we’d love to have you on board. Contact us at [email protected]
What does this mean for LAFF?
LAFF is aiming to raise £2,000 in donations during the Christmas Challenge week – that means that we’ll get a total of £4,000! That could mean:
Enabling psychologist, Eliana, to visit Azul Wasi every week (£1,656 – 1 year)
Ensure the 11 young mothers at Casa Mantay get their education, suppling uniforms, school materials, school fees and transportation (£2,900 – year)
Supporting the 50 girls at Sacred Valley Project to continue their education, covering expenses such as uniforms, materials, transportation and paying 7 after-school tutors. (£3,808 – 1 year)
Firstly, we want to say thanks to the Big Give for this opportunity. We also owe a huge thank you to Solihull School and the Coles-Medlock Foundation, our match funders for the event, without whom this would not be possible. THANK YOU And thank you to all our Big Givers for putting themselves out there to raise money for LAFF this Christmas. And thank you to everyone who donates and helps us to reach out £4,000 target.
