Magical Awareness Weeks
In June, we celebrated not one but two magical awareness weeks, Small Charity Week and Children’s Hospice Week; two things very close to our hearts!
As a small charity, it’s amazing to see that every year a week is dedicated to celebrating the hard work that all small charities like us do. A key theme of this year’s Small Charity Week was 'small but vital' – something that we think sums us up well. We are a small team, but we donate for children using all children’s hospices across the British Isles, so the life-limited and disabled children using these service have access to our life-changing technology.
Because of this, Children’s Hospice Week is also very special to us. We love working with children’s hospices and helping them with their ambitions to make an impact on the lives of the children who use their service. Seeing how the technology we donate helps to bring smiles to the faces of the children who get to use the technology, is so important to us.
Magical Gaming Bundles
In the last month, GamesAid released their UK Games Collective Bundle through #humble - all to raise money for the wonderful charities they support, including Lifelites It was a fantastic bundle packed full of six great games, and the best part about it is that all the money raised by its sales went to the charity. The HumbleBundle was on sale for two weeks and by the end had raised over £25,000!
We want to say a massive thank you to GamesAid for all their support and of course to everyone who purchased the Bundle and helped raised such an amazing amount.
Magical Charity Awards
In last month’s Magical Moments, we told you all how we were shortlisted for the 2021 Charity Awards, in their Children and Youth Category for our Tech Trunks project. A project which aims to support Hospice at Home services by providing a portable suitcase packed full of technology.
In June, we attended their online awards ceremony – and it was a spectacular event! We loved getting to hear about all the other charities that were nominated across the 11 categories and there were so many well-deserving winners. Though we sadly did not walk away with a win – we were so honoured to be shortlisted and have our Tech Trunk project recognised alongside many other worthy projects.
