As we are a tiny, wee charity, Live Life Then Give Life are totally dependent on the generosity of our individual supporters to enable us to keep doing what we do. We manage to get everything done entirely through the generous amounts of free time given by our trustees (most of whom also work full-time jobs) and the hard work of our wonderful advocates and volunteers who all believe that we want as many people as possible to experience organ donation as something magical, rather than heart-breaking.
As we are rather small and short on funds, we're not in a position to be able to hire someone to help take on tasks such as fundraising. However, without funds generated by individuals like you, we cannot carry out the research, talks, presentations, campaigns and support which we need to do to raise more awareness and save more lives.
So....how can you help? If you're short on time then you can help raise some money in a number of ways.
Coming up, we have the Great Valentine's Cake Bake!! By selling your baked goodies in aid of LLTGL you can help us help the thousands of people out there desperately waiting for a transplant that could save their lives. We've got tons of materials to help support you, including:
- A guide on how to organize your bake-sale
- A cute flyer to advertise your event
- A flyer to print out all about LLTGL and the work we do
- Or... you can join the Facebook event to help spread the word!!
Theres also a ton of events coming up that you can sponsor:
- Jacqueline and her team of 99 merry men and women are walking along the Fife coast;
- Team Ethan are running the BUPA Great Manchester 10k;
- Tom Richardson is doing the Tokyo marathon
If none of these inspire you, why not raise funds in your own special way? You can set up a fundraising page directly through our Justgiving page; or if you fancy something more adventurous like a Himalayan trek, white-water rafting, a cross-continent cycle ride or a sky-dive, check out the things on offer at doitforcharity. Some of the exciting events currently available include a Sahara Trek, a Cuban cycle ride and a Kilimanjaro climb!
If you do want to do something to help us raise money, please get in touch and we can totally help you publicise your event
Lots of love as always
ps. a massive thanks to Jac for the cute drawings on the flyers!
