Children’s Hospice Week kicked off in the UK yesterday, and the Duchess of Cambridgereleased a video message in support of the campaign to bring awareness and support to children with life-threatening conditions, as well as their families.
East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices(EACH) in England is supporting families dealing with the challenges these detrimental conditions can bring.
Ahead of the most highly-anticipated birth in recent history, five outstanding royal blogs have come together to raise funds for EACH as the “Baby Cambridge Fundraiser.”
What Kate Wore, A Petite Princess, Duchess Kate, Kate Middleton Style and British Royals have collectively gathered donations from many of the brands Her Royal Highness has worn. A sampling of designers offering items includes Links of London, London Sole, Temperley London and more.
Beginning April 29th through August 31st readers will be able to either win those highly coveted items in random drawings or through online auctions benefitting EACH.
The fundraising project is carried out with the knowledge and approval of EACH. All the funds raised will be donated in recognition of the care they provide young patients and the support offered for family members of those children. East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices must raise $8.7 million from public donations to deliver services this year. This amounts to more than $23,000 a day, every day of the year. Services through EACH are offered in three hospice locations in England and include day care in a patient’s family home or hospice, support for family members, various therapies and end of life care.
“I would like to take this opportunity to confirm that EACH fully endorses this fundraising initiative and respectfully asks that if the Baby Cambridge Fundraising team approaches you for support for their fundraising, that you look favorably upon their request.” – Camilla Haycock, fundraising development manager for EACH
