#GivingTuesday: Six Worthy Charities

After the hustle and bustle of Black Friday weekend and Cyber Monday comes a much more important and socially responsible retail event – #GivingTuesday.
The number one trending topic on Twitter at the time of writing, it’s a chance for people to do something wonderful for a charity close to their heart.
#GivingTuesday began in 2012, introduced by the United Nations Foundation & 92Y (of New York) to respond to the retail/commercial successes of Black Friday & Cyber Monday. This has slowly filtered through to the United Kingdom, and in 2016, it was reported that more than 1 in 10 adults participated in the event.
This year, we want to help increase that figure. Below we’ve listed six worthy charities that we work with who would truly appreciate your support on this important day. From £1 to £100, pence to grands, whatever you can spare this #GivingTuesday will make a difference.


Marie Curie

If you’re not sure of the work the Marie Curie charity undertakes, they offer care and support for people and families living with a terminal illness at home.
Should the worst happen, Marie Curie support is beyond exceptional. From the tender Care Nurses to the informative, resourceful website, a £20 donation pays for an hour of vital nursing care.

The Hibbs Lupus Trust

This charity is a dedicated team of volunteers who support people affected by lupus. For those who don’t know, lupus is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s natural defence attack healthy tissue.
Founded in 2011 by John Hibbs, the charity continuously looks to inform and support those affected by the disease, with resources and aid hard to come by for this illness. Although our working relationship with this charity is relatively new, we wholeheartedly respect and appreciate the work they are trying to achieve, and would encourage people to support a charity that is pushing awareness of a relatively non-mainstream disease.

Bloodwise

From the outside, it’s still quite hard to believe that blood cancer is a thing. People often forget that the likes of leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma all belong to this devastating category. Since 1960, Bloodwise have been funding essential research into these horrific diseases, as well as support affected individuals and families who are suffering.
Your support is vital to keep this research ongoing. Whether that’s taking part in a fundraising event (such as cycling, swimming or running) or setting up your own, every pound helps.

Dementia UK

Over the past few years, the impact of dementia has become common knowledge. While dementia is an umbrella term to describe the nature of progressive neurological disorders, Alzheimer’s Disease in the most common type of dementia.
This charity provides specialist support for families with a dedicated nurse service. Aptly named Admiral Nurses, a term taken to pay respect to the founder of the charity, these nurses help families to cope with dementia in the present while preparing for the challenges of the future.
Fundraising is vital for this charity. A £50 donation to Dementia UK could pay for an Admiral Nurse to spend time with a carer who feels isolated and alone.
