Many people prefer to ask friends and relatives to donate to CBM projects instead of buying flowers for a funeral or in memory on the anniversary of the passing of a loved one.
Supporting CBM's vital work across the globe can be a lasting and fitting tribute to the memory of someone special. These donations will be used to support the most vulnerable people with disabilities who live in the most disadvantaged societies.
£30 could pay for rehabilitative treatment for cerebral palsy. In developing countries children with severe disabilities are often neglected, so your gift may be an absolute lifeline for a child with cerebral palsy.
£90 could pay for a child's cataract operation - a straightforward but amazing gift that will give the priceless gift of sight.
£140 could pay for a complete treatment of corrective surgery. This will allow a developed case of clubfoot to be treated, enabling a child to walk independently and lead an active life alongside their friends, free from the associated pain and stigma that often accompanies disability.
£240 could pay for a girl or boy who is blind or otherwise disabled to study for a whole year at a CBM-supported school - giving them the same education in life as all their friends.
We can provide collection boxes, ready printed cards and freepost envelopes explaining your preference. Another advantage of asking people to donate to CBM directly is that there will be less for you to do at a time that you probably have more than enough to cope with.
CBM can also provide another way to create a continuing and very personal tribute to your loved one. Through our partners JustGiving and MuchLoved.com it is possible to create a memorial webpage dedicated to your loved one where friends and family from around the world can come together to share their special memories.
It is very straightforward, quick and free to set up, and can be as elaborate or as simple as you like. The design of the page can be customised, and picture galleries, slideshows, and even music and video can be added.
It is also possible to raise funds for CBM's important work through the memorial page if you wish to do so. For example, some of our members prefer to ask friends and family to donate to CBM in lieu of flowers.
