Mumsnet Giving Week - why we've decided to do it
“One of the great things about Mumsnet is how much our members support each other in times of need. We wanted to recognise some of the external organisations and charities that have also offered invaluable support and advice by having a week where we shine a light on them, encourage those who can to donate, and putting something in ourselves too.
"I very much hope Mumsnet Giving week becomes an annual event in which we can acknowledge some of fabulous organisations making a difference to people’s lives up and down the country.”
Justine Roberts - CEO Mumsnet
For our inaugural Giving Week (2-8 june 2014) we've chosen five great causes - two fantastic charities and three inspiring community projects - nominated by Mumsnetters, that are making a difference in people's lives.
Each organisation has its own Yimby or Just Giving crowdfunding page, on which we're encouraging those who can to donate; at the end of the week MNHQ will match your donations across all five up to the total value of £25,000.
Spread the word
If you can't donate, don't worry: instead, help us spread the word via Facebook and Twitter (using the hashtag #MumsnetGiving).
