This Christmas, could you buy an extra present for just one more child?
KUMB.com's Christmas Fundraising Appeal for Great Ormond Street Hospital: www.justgiving.com/Kumb-GOSH.
At this time of year, we often realise we need to buy an extra kid's present and just pop a little something extra into the shopping trolley without blinking. £5 for a Chocolate Selection Box? £10-15 for a Lego set? All par for the course at Christmas. A couple of quid to put a smile on a kid's face.
What we're asking this Christmas, is could you think of the children at Great Ormond Street as that extra kid you need to buy a present for?
Could you donate a fiver?
Could you spare £10 for those kids?
Together, our little presents can add up to make a big difference to a wonderful place. Great Ormond Street Hospital deals with over 175,000 patient visits every year. The daughter of one of our members, without a shadow of a doubt, would not have survived her first week if it wasn't for this hospital.
KUMB.com is trying to raise £1,000 (more is even better) - so think about it, could you buy just one more small present this Christmas? Please click on the link and make a secure donation via our Just Giving page.
Here's a thought - could you get the people in your office/pub/class to chip in? Please feel free to forward the Just Giving link.
Have a great Christmas - and thanks for helping put a smile on the face of someone's child. The link once again:
