Five great reasons to give this #GivingTuesday

After Black Friday and Cyber Monday comes Giving Tuesday, a day dedicated to giving to the causes you care about most – and we think it will make you feel great. This is why.

1 Dec 2015

1. Giving feels good

Amidst the madness of Christmas shopping, there's something special about knowing you've given an extra gift to someone who doesn't have the absolute essentials we take for granted - like clean, safe water and a decent place to go to the toilet.

2. You'll be making more moments like this happen

We're not exaggerating when we say clean water changes everything. It means no more long, dangerous walks to collect dirty water. It means better health, and the chance to go to school and invest in a livelihood for you and your family – so you can start to break the cycle of poverty.

And when the taps are turned on for the very first time? It's a moment you never forget. And it makes you feel like this:

3. Your gift will mean something amazing to mums around the world

This year, #GivingTuesday falls in the midst of something very special: our biggest ever fundraising appeal, Deliver Life. Having met incredible mums and midwives around the world forced to deliver babies in unhygienic conditions with no safe water, we're determined to change things – and your gift will help us do that.

4. You don't have to give a lot to do something incredible

For the price of just one extra present, you could transform daily life for a family in one of the world's poorest communities. £15? That's enough to bring clean, safe water to a mum. We can’t think of a better present than that.

5. If you donate by 10 February 2016,  the UK Government will double whatever you give!

So you're going to feel great, you're going to make other people feel great and you're going to help mums, midwives and babies around the world. What could be better than that?
