Rainbow Trust is thrilled to announce that we’re one of the thousands of organisations taking part in this year’s #GivingTuesday campaign, to be held on 30 November.
Brought to the UK in 2014 by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF), this year #GivingTuesday offers the opportunity to give back to good causes, either by donating to charity, reaffirming commitment to a cause, or volunteering time.
Rainbow Trust supports families who have a child aged 0-18 years with a life-threatening or terminal illness. There are an estimated 86,625* seriously ill children in England and this number has trebled over the last 17 years.
There are many ways that you can support Rainbow Trust this Giving Tuesday. You can make a donation or sponsor a Family Support Worker, pledge to host a fundraiser or take part in an event in 2022, or check out our current volunteering opportunities. You can also follow our work and help to spread the word about us on social media.
Andy Frain, #GivingTuesday UK Lead at the CAF, says:
“We’re all looking forward to moving on from the pandemic as soon as it is safe to do so, but it’s so important we remember the work done to help keep communities going over the last year and a half.
"Giving Tuesday is a great chance to Give Back to the charities and causes that we care about, and thank them for overcoming some immense challenges over the course of this pandemic.
"People can Give in so many ways and we’re always amazed at the diversity of people’s generosity – whether it is donating money, volunteering time or just amplifying your support for a charity, any act of Giving can make all the difference to a cause you care about.”
