My story

[p][b][i]Note: This page is hosted by Anasuya Iyer (one of DEx's trustees) and the charity linked is Octopus Giving which is one of DEx's main donors currently. Donating through Octopus Giving enables some matched funding from Octopus, your receipt will say "thank you from Anasuya at Octopus" - but all of the money raised here goes straight to DEx. [/i][/b][/p][p][b]Enabling children with Down syndrome to maximise their potential[/b][/p][p][b]PLEASE DONATE & SHARE WITH 3 FRIENDS[/b][/p][p][b]#DEx #DExFestiveAppeal2020 #maximisepotential #donate&share[/b][/p][p][b]The £30,000 Festive Appeal[/b][/p][p]As we check on our finances during this festive period, we are in a dire situation and we need your help. We are fighting desperately to keep our charity going at a time when fundraising is so difficult – you can contribute to providing hope and happiness, skills and greater chances in life to the children at DEx.[/p][p]DEx is not a big national charity but we work with 120 needy children and their families and bring hope and support – and importantly new learning opportunities. This costs £220,000 per year with absolutely no wasted money. We are working hard to raise £30,000 needed to take DEx beyond this Festive Season and through to March 2021. We need these funds to keep our services going for all our children and families.[/p][p]People with Down syndrome are found in every culture, race and religion. At DEx, our community is diverse, and therefore we reach out to all those who remember and celebrate through November and December – this is our Festive Appeal where we connect with those who are observing: Bodhi Day, Christmas, Hanukkah, The Winter Solstice, Zarothosht Diso and all other celebrations[/p][p]We need your urgent support now – help our children who are confused at being isolated from friends and need our support to learn to communicate and join in.[/p][p]Donate now to our Festive Appeal and help us reach our target so we can give hope to a child who needs to learn how to ask for a drink or whose peers at school cannot understand them. £30 could pay for a child to attend a highly specialist communication session and to learn sounds and sign language. Give once – yes please. Or give monthly? Please contact us directly at: georgia@downrightexcellent.org[/p][p]We ask you to donate what you can – £1, £30, £50, whatever you like! And importantly, once you have donated – please share this with at least 3 friends. Let’s keep this going![/p][p]Once you have donated, WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU – please get in touch with us and:[/p][p]just say hi![/p][p]Perhaps share a festive picture or story with a link to Down syndrome[/p][p]Or perhaps simply let us know why you donated to our Festive Appeal 2020[i]![/i][/p][p]Please contact Georgia Clark – [url=http://mailto:nicky@downrightexcellent.org]georgia@downrightexcellent.org[/url] or Ann Reynard – 01992 715243[/p][p]And we would love to share some of these to help spread the word about DEx and help spread the festive cheer![/p][p]Our goals this Festive season are to:[/p][p]Reach the magic number of £30,000[/p][p]Spread the word about DEx and spread some love and positivity this festive season![/p][p]Enable children with Down syndrome to maximise their potential[/p][p][br][/p]
