Here's a clicky link for MN Giving Week

MN will match fund donations.

I know lots of us have benefited from one or both of these, so, please, if you can, have a look and make a donation smile

Yes yes yes!!! I donated yesterday. Brilliant idea. Without ipsea I doubt many of us would advise knowledge to pass on and share on here

PolterGoose Wed 10-Jun-15 16:00:06

Exactly, they have taught so many of us so much smile

Yes, me too.

I'm delighted that IPSEA has been nominated and that they should receive this funding. But I must confess to being a bit sad that MN has chosen not to do the same for SOS SEN which does very similar and very valuable work with a fraction of the amount of funds that Ipsea gets.

senlawyer there was a thread for people to both nominate and vote. SOSSEN and IPSEA were both nominated but I guess IPSEA got more votes. Maybe keep an eye out for next year's and nominate SOSSEN then?

Done too!

2boysnamedR Sun 14-Jun-15 14:54:34

They are just short of 50% goal so if anyone hasn't donated yet but found mnsn helpful please do donate even if it's only £2 as it's charities like these where we get our information and facts.

Yes shame about Sossen who are also a excellent charity!

PolterGoose Sun 14-Jun-15 15:08:23

Well done everyone who's donated

There's an IPSEA guest post but MNHQ haven't stickied it on the SN boards - I have asked them to...

PolterGoose Sun 14-Jun-15 22:01:59


The week is nearly up and IPSEA are seriously lagging in donations sad

Bumping again, just a few hours to go.

2boysnamedR Sun 14-Jun-15 23:35:34

Shame they didn't get more. Would love to do a fund raiser for them one day. Maybe a sponsored "chain myself to to LA building for a day"

Sad they didn't make 50% of their target.
