Life Saving Birthday raised £11,000 in March

We are pleased to announce the fundraising results and winners of #LifeSavingBirthday campaign dedicated to the 10th anniversary of Gift of Life.

The Life Saving Birthday March appeal has come to an end bringing £11,000 to the charity. We are endlessly grateful to all who joined the campaign, made donations, ran charitable activities, encouraged their friends and families to support. The funds raised will enable Gift of Life to pay for vital medicines for children and young people with cancer and severe blood disorders in Russia.

The appeal was supported by over 200 participants including the Gift of Life Patron Katya Galitzine and ZIMA Magazine editor-in-chief, celebrity chef Alexei Zimin who hosted an online masterclass on making a honey cake. Thank you to ZIMA Magazine for the support of this fundraisier.

It’s not too late to support

The campaign continues and runs until the end of our anniversary year 2021. And with the help of our friends, donors and fundraisers, we hope to reach our primal goal of raising £20,000 to buy cancer drugs to treat children in the charity’s care.

At any time until December 31, anyone can support the campaign and our young patients with a donation at the campaign’s page.

We also invite our supporters to celebrate their own #LifeSavingBirthday – to donate their birthday to the charity asking for donations instead of birthday gifts. To set up this birthday fundraiser also use the campaign’s page.
