So we've had a new idea guys - it's called the Change 4 Children campaign, and we need your help!
Our idea is to have a team of supporters Nationwide, that can help the charity to respond quickly to the varying needs of the seriously ill children that we have the privilege of working with.
As you may or may not be aware, Sports Connections Foundation provides 'Sporting Wishes' for children suffering from life threatening illnesses. Some of these children are wheelchair users, others may seem fine outwardly, but could be taking a bucket load of medication every day for the rest of their lives, to ensure they stay alive! For these children and their families, a Sporting Wish to see their favourite sports team in training, or to be a mascott at an International football game, can provide lasting happy memories that for some may be the last memories they have, and for others can just give them something amazing to look forward to!
Unfortunately, there are many children and their families that we have been unable to help with one of our Sporting Wishes, due to not being able to raise the funds in time, which is where your regular support through Change 4 Children can help!
There are so many ways the charity works to help support the next generation, including:
Inspiring children to be more physically active
Creating lasting memories with a Sporting Wish for children facing life threatening illness
Recognising and rewarding children’s sporting achievements
Helping to guide children away from a life of poverty
Developing positive futures for vulnerable and disadvantaged children through our through our Inspire Through Sport mentor programme
Engaging with 1000's of children across the UK with our ProKick schools challenge, educating them about the importance of global citizenship
To us, every child matters, which is why we
are asking all our supporters to
help make a difference in the lives
of the young people we work with
in two ways;
1 - Commit to giving as much change as possible as a monthly gift. Your idea of "change" may be as little as £1 per month in pennies from a jar, or £20 per month from your company's left over petty cash - it doesn't matter the amount, what matters is the continued support.
2 - Helping us to raise awareness among your family, friends and work colleagues by wearing our charity's T-shirt and posting a lovely photo of yourself on social media using the hashtag #Change4Children, showing others just how easy it is to get involved!
By the way - did we mention that you get a free T-shirt? Email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know your postal address and what size of T-shirt you need
(S/M/L/XL). We will then post it out within 7 working days so that you can begin to raise awareness for the Change 4 Children campaign.
Thank you so much for your support – it really does mean the world to these children!
