We could think of endless reasons why you should fundraise for the technology that Lifelites provides children in hospices, but here are our top five:
5. We spend wisely
Our office premises and administrative services are donated to us by the Masonic Charitable Foundation. This means we can focus more of the money you raise on delivering magical technology to children in hospices. You can read our annual reports and accounts here.
4. We support fundraisers every step of the way
You will get a dedicated member of the team to support you throughout your fundraising. From organising your event to helping send your donation in, we will always be on the other end of the phone for hassle free support and advice. If you need help promoting your event, we will help you, and if you need any resources, we can send them out to you.
3. Fundraising is a chance for you to take pride in giving back
Maybe you know someone who has benefitted from the use of our technology. Maybe you have enjoyed gaming or appreciate being able to use technology in your everyday life. The children we support, get so much out of the technology that people like you help to provide.
2. We support the children at every children’s hospice service across the British Isles
No child should go without. There are currently 60 children’s hospice services in the British Isles. All of the 10,000 children who use these services will have access to our life changing technology, but only because people like you fundraise. This includes not only children’s hospices, but hospice at home services which work in the community, and transition services which help young people transition to adult hospice services.
1. You can help to profoundly change children’s lives
Our favourite reason - you can help to change lives. Without people like you raising funds for Lifelites, we couldn’t continue to deliver our magical technology to these children, we couldn’t train the staff how to use it to its full potential, and we couldn’t fix it when it’s broken.
With your support, children in hospices will have a chance to play, to create, and to control something for themselves, for as long as it is possible. They wouldn’t have the opportunity to escape the confines of their condition and make precious memories that their family will treasure forever.
Help us continue to change lives by supporting us now.

John Donoghue is a dedicated Lifelites Benefactor. He shared with us his very moving personal story about his daughter's health and the reason he decided to become a benefactor, and make a regular monthly gift to Lifelites.
Our Patrons support our vision, mission and values and give all of their time for free. Their contribution and support is highly valued.
Lifelites aims to harness the power of technology by donating a wide variety of assistive and inclusive equipment to enhance the lives of life-limited and disabled children using hospice services.
For these children with complex cognitive and physical impairments, this technology is quite simply magical. It gives them opportunities they wouldn’t otherwise have to join in with the world around them, irrespective of their disabilities.
Providing these opportunities is only possible because of the donations that Lifelites receives.
