Why your support matters
There are lots of children waiting for their special dream and your support could make sure they see it happen. There are lots of different funding limits in place for different dreams. Why not set yourself a target to aim for and tell you friends and family about the difference you are hoping to be able to make with their support?
A donation of £20 could enable two siblings to take a trip to the cinema together after they have had to spend months apart due to hospital stays and treatments.
£50 could mean that a family are able to purchase zoo tickets and spend their last day out together while their child is still well enough, creating memories that they can keep forever.
If you are able to raise £80 sponsorship you could be helping a very poorly young man to have a truly memorable birthday, even if he is spending it in hospital. With £80 we can make sure he has a huge cake, a room full of balloons, his favourite TV or film character to sing him Happy Birthday and even a birthday present to unwrap.
£500 is such an amazing amount of money and if you are able to raise this you could be helping a family to buy a specialist car seat that will enable their very poorly child to travel without pain.
Why don’t you and your team choose a joint team target that you all try to raise together? £800 could be used to buy a laptop with games and software to entertain a bed bound or hospital admitted youngster, enabling them to continue with schoolwork and stay in contact with their friends.
If you think you and your team could raise £1000 you will be making an enormous difference. £1000 is the kind of donation that would help to transform a child’s bedroom from a cold, clinical and scary room full of medical equipment into a bright and colourful room that looks much more like a child’s bedroom. It could also buy sensory toys for a child who cannot use other toys, or buy a television or games console for a child who cannot get out of bed.
£1200 would help towards an adapted tricycle that will enable a disabled child to be safe and supported while they play outside, help strengthen their muscles and spend time out of their wheelchair. It could also enable a family to experience the wonder of Disneyland Paris, to enjoy the parades and rides, and have the chance to meet the characters, creating amazing memories.
Perhaps you and your colleagues are taking part as a team and feel you might be able to raise a whopping £1500 between you all. £1500 would help a family to buy a specially adapted buggy to enable them to take their disabled child to the beach or to the park. It could also be used towards a hoist, helping families to look after their disabled children at home.
Whatever the amount of your donation, we can guarantee that it really will bring a smile to the face of a child who really needs a little joy in their life. Thank you so much in advance.
We are very proud that our partners realised why their support matters and by funding the infrastructure of Walk for Dreams they have helped us to ensure that all monies raised will go directly to help our children. A very big THANK YOU to all of them.
