Why make a donation in memory of somebody?

The people that we love leave a lasting impression on our lives. Often, we want to see their legacy and their memory live on. A beautiful way to celebrate and honour somebody who has passed on is to make a donation on their behalf, in memory of the impact that they have had on this world.

This ensures that their generous spirit outlives them, and continues to change the lives of vulnerable children and families for the better.

We are sending our deepest condolences. <<name of your loved one>> will forever be in our hearts and we are thinking of you during this difficult time.

Through their network of organisations in 38 countries, they manage to transform lives with locally led action, empowering organisations who best understand their cultural context to change lives for the better.

We feel that <<enter name here>> would be glad to know that their legacy lives on to help vulnerable children in need.
