What is Giving Tuesday?

#GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back, on Tuesday 27th November 2018.
It is a day to come together for one common purpose, to celebrate generosity and to give.

LEARN MORE

Over 100 donors helped make the day a huge success  and we raised over £11,000!
This year, we want to repeat this success so we can give another child in need the benefit of a Christ’s Hospital education.

How can you help?

We invite you to join our #GivingTuesday effort by making a gift to the Blue Fund to help collectively fund another child at CH for their full seven years.

No matter the amount, your gift on #GivingTuesday will help offer a life changing opportunity to a young person.

Please join us and be part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.

I’ve donated to the Blue Fund for #GivingTuesday to help fund a child’s seven year education at Christ’s Hospital. Help us to reach our goal and visit http://bluefund.christs-hospital.org.uk/donate

100% of the money donated to the Blue Fund directly supports a disadvantaged child’s education at Christ’s Hospital. That’s why I’m supporting the Blue Fund for #GivingTuesday

The Blue Fund provides a first class education for a child in substantial need, providing a nurturing environment for high potential children for whom these opportunities would otherwise not be available.

Dear [Friend],

Today, I am participating in #GivingTuesday by supporting the Blue Fund, to offer life-changing opportunities to young people at Christ’s Hospital.

On #GivingTuesday charities, businesses, and families around the world come together for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.

The Blue Fund invites groups of donors to join forces and, in partnership, fully fund a seven year education and boarding at Christ’s Hospital for children in need.

I invite you to join me this #GivingTuesday by making a gift to the Blue Fund.

It is easy to donate online at: bluefund.christs-hospital.org.uk/donate/

I hope you will join me in your support.

Many Thanks,

[Your Name]

P.S. Please share your support on social media using #GivingTuesday and @CHBlueFund.
