As we are a relatively small, local charity, many of the brilliant people that fundraise for us are already connected to us in some special way.
People fundraise for us in all sorts of wonderful ways; by running the London Marathon, nominating us as their Charity of the Year at work, or even asking for donations to Daisy’s Dream in place of their Christmas presents one year.
All of these wonderful gestures essentially mean the difference between one of our Therapeutic Practitioners working with a family faced with a bereavement or a life-limiting illness, or not.
Perhaps the most special of all though is when a family member, or a young person that we have worked with, goes on to fundraise for us, or donate to Daisy’s Dream. Following the support they received from Daisy’s Dream, they want to be able to help others to do the same; to learn to cope with what has happened in their family and move forward in a positive way that works for them.
This means our work goes full circle.
People fundraise in lots of different ways, but often it means deciding on your own way to fundraise that works best for you and setting up a fundraising page with your story.
You can create a special, In Memory fundraising page here.
Giving in Memory or in Celebration
Many of the families we work with are learning to cope with a bereavement and might be thinking about ways to commemorate the life of a loved one or do something in their memory. This is sometimes a time when people look to fundraise - as a way of doing something positive in a difficult time. There are many ways people find to do this, but here are just some ideas:
