My story

[p]Back in 2018, we got the support of Elon Musk ([url=https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1013899626477473792]https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1013899626477473792[/url]) to raise funds to purchase Toy Tesla's to continue our groups' mission of raising funds to buy discounted Toy Tesla Electric Cars to be donated to children's hospices and hospitals across the UK.[/p][p]To date (August 2019) we've now donated over 160 toy cars, this campaign is the next step, to raise more funds to purchase more cars for delivery in 2019/20, so far this year we've raised £16,269 but we're aiming for just over £40,000.[/p][p]Previously for every mini Tesla cars worth of funds (£664) donated we had matched funding to buy another one, so 50 cars pledged on here equals 100 cars ordered! We should be able to replicate the same again this year.[/p][p]Last year we partnered with Christian Blandford Fund (Registered Charity number - 1139614) to ensure the donations are eligible for gift aid. I've personally become a [url=http://apps.charitycommission.gov.uk/Showcharity/RegisterOfCharities/ContactAndTrustees.aspx?RegisteredCharityNumber=1139614&SubsidiaryNumber=0&TID=12191340]trustee[/url] for the charity and have [url=http://teslaownersgroup.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/AgreementwithTOGUK.pdf]signed paperwork from the Trustees[/url] stating that all funds donated via Tesla Owners UK (including all gift aid claimed) will go to directly fund the purchase & distribution of the mini Teslas. The founder of the charity is also a Tesla owner in our group.[/p][p][b]What stipulations are given to the hospices/hospitals?[/b][/p][p]All that we ask is that these cars get used by children that are going through extremely difficult times and that they won't end up in a corner of a room unused, therefore we're requesting written approval from the hospice or hospital management for each car donated to stipulate that they will be of use in the facility, will be used by their patients and that the cars cannot be sold for cash or other services.[/p][p][b]I don't want to donate here but would like to help in another way[/b][/p][p]If you would prefer a bank transfer visit [url=https://teslaownersgroup.co.uk/donating-money-mini-teslas-childrens-hospitals-hospices]https://teslaownersgroup.co.uk/donating-money-mini-teslas-childrens-hospitals-hospices[/url][/p][p][b]What will happen if/when you run out of locations to send the cars?[/b][/p][p]The cars not used in the UK will be headed to Europe and will be split and sent to the official clubs listed on [url=https://www.tesla.com/en_GB/support/tesla-owners-club-directory]https://www.tesla.com/en_GB/support/tesla-owners-club-directory[/url].[/p][p][b]Which children's hospices/hospitals are going to get them?[/b][/p][p]Members of TOGUK ([url=https://teslaownersgroup.co.uk/]Tesla Owners Group UK[/url]) are coordinating a direct contact approach with all the suitable charities/hospices/hospitals in the UK. Because we want to ensure these cars are used and not sold on for cash we're directly contacting charities that we have previous dealings with. Only one car will be given to each location.[/p][p][b]How do I know this is legitimate?[/b][/p][p]Not only has [url=https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1013897145773166595]Elon shown support for this campaign via a recent tweet [/url]but you will also find my name listed on [url=https://www.tesla.com/en_GB/support/tesla-owners-club-directory]https://www.tesla.com/en_GB/support/tesla-owners-club-directory[/url] as the [url=https://www.facebook.com/TeslaOwnersUK/]Tesla Owners UK[/url] President.[/p][p][b]Would you prefer to make a corporate/business donation instead?[/b][/p][p]Read [url=https://teslaownersgroup.co.uk/donating-money-mini-teslas-childrens-hospitals-hospices]https://teslaownersgroup.co.uk/donating-money-mini-teslas-childrens-hospitals-hospices[/url][/p][p][br][/p][p]Thank you for your time,[/p][p][br][/p][p]William Fealey[/p][p]Tesla Owners UK President.[/p]
