Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice #makeamoment Campaign

16/01/2015

Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice #makeamoment campaign is focused around the special moments we all treasure, whether it’s just five minutes of peace or catching up with an old friend.

Claire-Marie Taylor, Head of Marketing at the charity explains: “At Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice we support some truly amazing children and families who, even with their extraordinary circumstances, manage to find these special moments every day.

“Dawn, whose ten year old daughter Lucy has quadriplegic cerebral palsy, has her moment every morning when she wakes up her daughter. Even through the pain, Lucy greets her mum with a beautiful smile, something so simple which really does mean the world to her. It is these moments we aim to provide to our families every day in their precious time together and we would love your support in helping us to do this.”

The cause has already received some high profile backing from Educating Yorkshire’s Mr Mitchell and celebrity chef Rosemary Shrager, who have shown their support to the charity by sharing their special moments on Twitter.

Also with thanks to Exterion Media the charity has had massive coverage across Huddersfield, Halifax and Wakefield, with advertising on bus backs and a takeover of the Huddersfield Train Station, all to help raise further awareness of the campaign.

To help raise funds for the campaign and support local children and families make their moments, Tweet or post on Facebook using the #makeamoment and share what makes your day as well as texting ‘MOMENT’ to 70007 to donate just £3.

You can then nominate your friends and family to join in the campaign and keep it rolling. By supporting this campaign you will then be helping Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice to continue fundraising towards their £3.2million annual target.
