The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2019 is now closed, and you have all been incredibly generous. We are delighted to announce we have exceeded our target and raised a total of £25,563, with donations from 67 people during the live week. Including gift aid, we will receive an amazing £27,538.00 in total from the Big Give. This is our most successful Christmas Challenge to date, and we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated.
The funds raised during the Christmas Challenge week really will make a huge difference. Street children are often the most powerless and forgotten in society, with no one to stand up for them and no way of making their needs, dreams and ambitions heard.
We will work with street children and those who support them across Latin America, Africa and Asia to help them understand their rights and how to make their voices heard through training and innovative e-learning, uniquely developed for them. This will empower street children to speak up for their rights and could help to change laws and policies to help protect them.
We will keep you up to date on the progress of this work throughout the year, and once again, thank you for supporting the Big Give Christmas Challenge.
