Toonspeak Participating in #givingtuesday

#GivingTuesday takes place on the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday and is a day to give back and do good.
This year it falls on 27th November.
#GivingTuesday is powered by CAF (Charity Aid Foundation). Last year 1 in 10 people in the UK did something on the day and it was the UK’s number one Twitter trend which is amazing! The campaign holds the world record for the most money raised online for charity in 24 hours, and last year raised $64 million globally! This is the first year that Toonspeak will be participating and we would be so grateful if you chose to support us.
There are many ways you can give on #GivingTuesday whether that be your time volunteering, donating food or clothes to a charity that helps those in need, or by giving money towards a cause.
What we would ask for is a donation, if you can, towards something that is key to what we do…….
No not Will Smith, although how cool would it be to get in the Fresh Prince!!!!
Nope we are raising money for TAXIS.
There are so many key reasons why we provide taxis for our participants. Safety being at the top of the list
It enables us cover a bigger area geographically so that if people don’t have a centre in walking distance they can still get to Toonspeak. Taxis have proven to ensure regular attendance over the years. Everyone having access treats everyone the same. Removing any worry about money in order to get there. Supporting any young carers who can’t be out the house for too long, the list goes on……
But taxis are one of the hardest things to get funding for.
This #GivingTuesday you can help us by donating what you can to our taxi fund and enable young people to get to Toonspeak and access to all the amazing FREE projects we provide.
You can do so by making an online donation – we are very grateful for any donation large or small.
You can also donate by text. Just text TOON25 and then the amount you’d like to donate (any amount e.g. ‘TOON25 £5′) to 70070
You can also make a small monthly online donation to Toonspeak if you felt like you would like to contribute more
Toonspeak is a charity registered in Scotland, registration number SC022150.
We truly appreciate any help you can offer.
