Happy 15th Birthday, Podari Zhizn! Fundraising campaign by Gift of Life’s friends

Join Gift of Life’s new fundraising campaign honouring the 15th birthday of our sister charity Podari Zhizn, Russia’s leading children’s foundation.

Since 2006 Podari Zhizn has helped over 73,000 children and young adults with cancer and other serious illnesses in Russian hospitals. We are proud to support this vital work and with your help we can continue to provide Podari Zhizn patients with essential medicines, unavailable in Russia and vital for the treatment of certain types of cancer.

On and around 26th of November, celebrate this important milestone with us by raising much-needed funds to help children beat cancer!

STEP 1 – Create your activity today (You can bake a cake, host a party, offer your professional or hobby skills, sell your product or get on a personal challenge!). Anything you enjoy doing and sharing with friends, family and colleagues can serve a good cause.

STEP 2 – Head over to JustGiving platform and set up your personal page, add a description of your initiative and choose your fundraising target. Download our manual on setting up JustGiving page here.

STEP 3 – Promote your JustGiving page by sharing it on social media and inviting your friends, family and colleagues to support your fundraising activity.

Our campaign goal is to raise £10,000 and create a medicine fund for our patients. This invaluable monetary reserve allows us to react quickly as the need arises. At present Podari Zhizn needs £3 million a year to fund medicines currently unavailable in Russia. Gift of Life contributes a significant portion of this cost, providing around £800,000 for medicines annually.

To thank you for supporting this important cause, we will enter all campaign participants into a raffle draw to win an amazing prize provided by Gift of Life’s partner Bloom Perfumery Lab – an invitation for two to a bespoke perfume mixing session.

Join in and start your fundraising today for an opportunity to win your own bespoke formula made with you at Bloom Perfumery Lab! Imagine and mix a perfume your way at Bloom’s Bespoke Lab: dream a story, pick the notes and we will help you with the technical part of the process.
