The Big Give Christmas Challenge – help Jessie May DOUBLE our donations!

We are taking part in the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign – the Big Give Christmas Challenge. Our aim is to reach our target of £23,100, allowing Jessie May to continue to care for local terminally ill children.

The Big Give Challenge offers supporters of Jessie May the opportunity to have their donation doubled on during the week of the campaign, which will run from midday #GivingTuesday 27th November to midday Tuesday 4th December.

So how does the Christmas Challenge work? Watch the video below!

There are currently 11 children within our operating areas not receiving our free respite and palliative care support. Your help means we can welcome all of these children onto our caseload. We need to raise £11,550 of pledge funding to match fund individual donations during the Big Give campaign and ensure we can:

  • Continue to operate a no waiting list policy so new families can receive our support immediately
  • Conduct the home visits needed to accept and set-up 11 new children onto the Jessie May caseload
  • Provide palliative care and holistic support to improve the whole family’s health and well-being
  • Increase parents’ sense of belonging to a supportive community of others with terminally ill children

Become a pledger for Jessie May by August 31st and help make donations go twice as far! Your pledge will help incentivise supporters to donate during the week-long campaign as every £ they give, you will have promised to match, up until we reach your total pledge amount.
