Fundraising Manager, Luke Cashin shares his thoughts on Giving Tuesday which takes place on Tuesday 28th November.
“As the festive season draws near, we find ourselves in a whirlwind of merrymaking, gift-giving, and heartfelt expressions of gratitude. Giving Tuesday reminds us of the power of collective giving. This global day of generosity invites us to extend our compassion beyond our immediate circles and support worthwhile causes.
For We Are Beams, a charity dedicated to empowering families with disabled children, Giving Tuesday holds a profound significance. It presents an opportunity to highlight our impact and reach more families who desperately need our support. Your generosity, whether it is in the form of a financial contribution, a volunteer commitment, or simply spreading the word, can make a huge difference.
The Ripple Effect of Generosity
Your act of kindness on Giving Tuesday will help us to provide essential services to families with disabled children, including:
• Respite Care: Offering parents and carers a break to recharge.
• Holiday Club Activities: Providing disabled children with opportunities for fun, socialisation, and skill development within a safe and supportive environment.
• Family Advice: Equipping families with knowledge and resources to navigate the complexities of disability services effectively for their children’s needs.
