This week will feature #GivingTuesday!
What is #GivingTuesday?
Giving Tuesday is an international day of giving. It immediately follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday (this year, 27 November) each year and is a chance to give back to good causes close to our hearts and minds!
Roughly 1 in 10 people chose to take part each year, with millions of pounds being very generously donated throughout the World.
On a local level, it also gives smaller localised charities a voice and an opportunity to ask its community to raise much needed funds to carry on the good work it is doing.
Why support Headway Essex today on #GivingTuesday
Every 58 minutes someone is admitted to hospital with a brain injury. Quite often, their life and the lives of their family members will forever be affected.
Each year, Headway Essex, supports hundreds of people living with acquired brain injury, giving them the opportunity to develop a renewed sense of purpose, social structure and added meaning to their lives.
Our Community Support Service could not function without the ongoing commitment of people committed to raising money for us. By supporting us today, you’ll help secure the tomorrows of many clients and their carers.
How you can get involved
- Become a Festive Fundraiser. Something as simple as raising funds from a Christmas Jumper or baking competition will enable us to be there for somebody when they really need our help!
- Become a member of The Headway Essex Hive and start the New Year by giving a regular donation to Headway Essex
- Make a one-off donation. Just £5 allows us to provide initial advice and information to somebody living with a brain injury.
- Sign-up to a challenge and get fundraising! There’s nothing like a new challenge for the New Year!
We promise every penny you donate or raise will go to continuing our work in supporting people living with acquired brain injury in Essex.
