Big Give Christmas Challenge
The Christmas Challenge is the UK’s largest online match funding campaign that can help our charity double donations during the period between November 28th - 5th December.
The Big Give Christmas Challenge takes place from #CharityTuesday 28th November to Tuesday 5th December.
What happens during the Christmas Challenge?
Donations made to our project via theBigGive.org.uk will be doubled during the campaign. If you would like to support our work this year, we highly recommend doing so during the Christmas Challenge when your donation will be doubled and make even more of a difference to us.
For children and young people living with a serious disability or a life-limiting illness life's difficulties are multiplied by the challenges, pressures and worries associated with their condition. The burden of care resting on parents and families is tremendously heavy and unrelenting. For some children there is no cure and treatment simply relieves symptoms. For others the prognosis is terminal. Dreams Come True provides a special experience to bring joy into the lives of these families.
The promise of a dream is a unique gift. Its planning creates a sense of anticipation and something to look forward to; feelings of hope, excitement, inclusion, control and normality for the individual. A dream offered can be a validation of their situation for a family. Sharing the experience of a dream can ease any sense of guilt held by young people about their condition and its effects on their family. Dreams enrich lives, bringing joy and respite; and the memories can last forever.
