We’re excited to share our news that Pump Aid has been accepted to take part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge this year, the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign.
This means that from 12pm on Tuesday 28th November until 5th December each donation towards our target via thebiggive.org.uk will be doubled and help us to bring even more clean water to some of the poorest parts of Malawi.
WHERE DO THE FUNDS GO?
In Malawi, access to education is key to improving the life chances of children. But sadly, 75% of pre-schools have no access to clean water or safe toilets which impairs early development and growth.
Your donations through the Big Give Campaign will provide an entire pre-school and surrounding community in Malawi with access to clean water, hygienic toilets and workshops in hygiene behaviour.
WHAT IS THE BIG GIVE CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE?
The Big Give Christmas Challenge was launched in 2008 and offered supporters of participating charities the opportunity to have their donation doubled on thebiggive.co.uk.
In its first year, it was a resounding success: match funding of £1 million ran out within 45 minutes. The Christmas Challenge grew from there and is now the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign. We are delighted to be part of it.
This year’s campaign goes live at 12pm on #GivingTuesday, 28th November 2017.
HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?
Remember, we will only be able to double donations while our match funds last, so please make sure you donate as soon after 12pm on Tuesday 28th November as possible!
