We are delighted to have been selected to take part in this year’s Big Give Christmas Challenge!
It’s the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign, which helps many charities raise millions each year towards worthy causes, and gives donors an amazing opportunity to double their donation towards the causes they care about.
How does it work?
We’re aiming to raise £4,000 towards life-changing Lyme disease research during the challenge, which runs from 12pm Tuesday 3 December to 12pm Tuesday 10 December 2019.
Every donation made via our special Big Give weblink between those dates will be doubled*.
So if you donate £10, it becomes worth £20. If you donate £25, it becomes worth £50, and so on.
We need the support of those passionate about our mission to donate whatever they can and help raise £2,000, which will be matched by pledges of £2,000 already secured from generous donors and a charity champion.
Too often, cases of Lyme disease go missed or undiagnosed due to the lack of a truly reliable diagnostic test for the disease. There is also no way to test if treatment has worked, and a patient has been cured.
We want to help improve the lives of the thousands of people who are desperately ill with Lyme disease and either unaware of the true cause of their illness, or who have received inadequate testing and treatment.
We also want to ensure that those who become infected with the disease in the future are diagnosed and treated promptly, with a reliable and accurate test and treatment protocols that work for everyone.
We aim to fund desperately needed research that helps ensure all UK Lyme patients are diagnosed, treated and cured on the NHS, and we believe this starts with a truly reliable diagnostic test.
Christmas is a time for giving, and if you give to charity at this time of year, please consider making your donation to Caudwell LymeCo, in the knowledge that it will become its worth!
One donation, twice the impact.
How do I donate?
The campaign starts tomorrow at 12pm midday and runs until 12pm midday on Tuesday 10 December.
Donations must be made via our Big Give webpage within this period in order to be doubled. Donations made outside of these times and dates (or via the normal donate button on a Caudwell LymeCo webpage) will still come to the charity, but won’t be doubled.
Please support us if you can. Thank you.
