We contact our supporters for various reasons; to thank them, let them know about our work and sometimes to ask for more help.
We’re really grateful for all the support we receive but we want to reach out to as many children as possible so sometimes we will ask if you’re able to increase your support or make a one off donation to a specific cause.
