Three Reasons To Donate To Save The Children
- Help make the world a better place for children. Children are innocent and it is an unspeakable horror when they are subjected to the atrocities of war or have to deal with the effects of a natural disaster. There is no one to speak for the rights of children and this is where Save the Children come in. You could help with a donation of as small as £5, which would make the world of difference.
- A charity gift is unique. You could opt to make a donation in the name of a friend or loved one and we guarantee you they will be really happy that they were the reason behind a charitable donation. There is no better feeling than knowing you did something good for someone else.
- Every penny counts. Save the Children raises most of its funding from individual donors and this means it is really important that the general public contribute. The organisation is doing really important work helping children who live in areas that are stricken by conflict. Even a small donation will go towards helping the Save the Children do the important work that it does.
