Double your donation at no extra cost! Find out how...

Donate to the Theodora Children's Charity via theBigGive.org.uk from 12 noon Tuesday 28th November – 12 noon Tuesday 5th December 2017 and your donation will be doubled!                                                
We’re very excited to share the news that the Theodora Children’s Charity has been selected to participate in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2017, the UK’s largest match funding campaign. A HUGE thank you to Candis for choosing to support Theodora as our charity champion this year. Since the Big Give launched the campaign in 2008, the Christmas Challenge has raised over £71 million for more than 2,500 charity projects. It is a fantastic opportunity for us to raise money and build awareness of our work.
What happens during the Christmas Challenge?
Any donation (up to a maximum of £5,000) made via the Big Give website from 12 noon Tuesday 28th November - 12 noon Tuesday 5th December 2017 has the opportunity to be doubled!
Online donations will kindly be doubled by our key supporters and the Big Give’s philanthropic partner, Candis. We will only be able to double donations while our match funds last, so please make sure you donate as soon as possible after 12 noon on Tuesday 29th November as possible.
If you would like to support our work this year, we highly recommend donating on one of these days, when your donation can be doubled and make even more of a difference to children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centres.
How to donate:
Where? Online at theBigGive.org.uk
How does it work? Go to our Big Give page at 12 noon on Tuesday 28th November. There will be a clear message to indicate the Challenge has started. Follow the steps and you can donate up to £5,000. If you start the donation process before 12pm and pre-fill the donation form, your donation will not be matched. If available, matching funds will be reserved for 10 minutes whilst you donate.
What can you do now?
• Add a reminder to your calendar for the 28th November -  including a link to the Big Give website: https://secure.thebiggive.org.uk/donation/to/1293/7537/
• Make sure you have your  card details ready when you make your donation.
We are very excited to be taking part in the Christmas Challenge, having been selected from a much larger group of charity applicants. We really hope we’ll be able to maximise this opportunity and hit our target by raising as many online donations as possible.
Please do spread the word to anyone who would be interested in supporting our work.
Thank you so much for your support.
