A grieving sibling WISHES FOR

a copy of "The Baby" book to explain loss

£8.00



"The Baby" is a magical rhyming book that is intended to support families that are suffering or have suffered with the loss of a baby. Written by talented children’s author Joseph Hopkins in collaboration with registered charity ‘Making Miracles’, the book is intended to help families talk and provoke communication about this tough subject. Research showed that families find talking to young children or siblings particularly hard and that is where ‘The Baby’ can help. Wonderful, simple and calm illustrations are a perfect fit for the book.





GRANT WISH
A refugee child in Uganda WISHES FOR

A school desk to receive quality education.

£25.00



Uganda hosts the largest number of refugees in Africa (1.4 million), and 58% of them are children under 18 years old. The basic right to education of refugees is often denied. Living in a foreign country fleeing violence and persecution creates an extremely difficult situation for learning. Where education can continue, it is often of poor quality; in Uganda, this is affecting hundreds of thousands of children. The majority of schools do not have the infrastructure to accommodate overcrowded classrooms and the basic needs of children. Overcrowding is the hardest obstacle for teachers and students alike. This makes the situation for both teacher and learner almost impossible. Infrastructure needs to be adequate in order to make schools safer and more accessible, to all children affected by conflict. We aim to provide sufficient space, desk and learning materials to improve primary school children's learning outcomes and secure their academic future toward secondary level.

Windle International empowers people to make lasting change in their own lives, in their communities and in wider society. We do this by creating access to quality education and training across East Africa and the Horn of Africa for refugees, communities affected by conflict, and those who have been marginalised in society. We believe that positive change is achieved, and peaceful societies are created, when the people who have been most affected by conflict are empowered to become change-makers in their communities. In Uganda, we have been recognized Best International Education Humanitarian NGO in the country, in both 2019 and 2020.

GRANT WISH
child with cancer WISHES FOR

AV1 robot to help me participate in class from hospital isolation

£6000.00



Childhood cancer is a life changing diagnosis.

It affects the child diagnosed but also their siblings, parents and their friends and teachers at school. A child with cancer faces prolonged periods of time away from school in isolation and in hospital. The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust cannot change the child’s diagnosis, but we can help to make a real difference by giving them some hope and a level of normality whilst they are fighting their illness.

Why do we need these robots?

By giving isolated children this ‘window’ to their friends and the outside world, we can help them to bridge the gap. The AV1 robot allows children in a hospital bed to interact with their classroom and their peers at the same time. Not only does this bring hope and positivity to children (and their families) affected by cancer but also to their peers who are facing the sudden disappearance of their friend. We have seen how Oscar, Lucy and Zain, who have already been given the use of our AV1 robots, have already benefitted.

 

How many children need help?

In the counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire, there are approximately 75 children diagnosed with cancer every year, with around 40 being of school age. Of these school children, more than a half will need extended periods of hospitalisation or isolation during their treatment. Our aim is to be able to support these children with our AV1 machines wherever possible. Over the first three years of the project, we aim to purchase 18 new AV1 machines and support packages for these children to use. Referrals will be made directly from cancer specialist nurse teams to ensure that the children that need them are not missed.

GRANT WISH
child with cancer WISHES FOR

Buzzy Bee to reduce my pain

£40.00



£40 to buy a Buzzy for our family support packs.

Buzzy is a very cute vibrating bee with ice pack wings that decreases sharp pain.

Buzzy®uses natural pain relief by confusing your body's own nerves, thereby dulling or eliminating sharp pain. In the same way that rubbing a bumped elbow helps stop the hurt, or cool running water soothes a burn, Buzzy® bypasses sharp pain. In an emergency department, nurses and doctors can get too busy to wait for numbing creams for needle procedures. For newly diagnosed diabetic children, the medical community has a history of expecting kids to just get used to needle pain. For shots, for bee stings, for boo-boos, for injected medicines, for all acute pain management, Dr. Amy Baxter and her team developed Buzzy® to put instant pain management in YOUR hands.

BillyChip®️ WISHES FOR

Add a new outlet to the BillyChip scheme

£260.00



Your donation will cover the costs involved in setting up a new cafe or restaurant to be part of the BillyChip®️ scheme.

BillyChip®️ Foundation registered charity 1188779 was set up in 2018 to continue the legacy of Billy Abernethy-Hope a twenty-year-old ambulance driver from Bristol who was the inspiration and idea behind the BillyChip®️. After helping support the homeless at Christmas, Billy felt disheartened at how little support the general public gave to local homeless people. Many people donate to charity on a regular basis but Billy was surprised what a small percentage of donations were given directly to people living rough on our streets. Turns out most people are apprehensive to give money directly to homeless people because it's not possible to know how a donation is spent.

Unfortunately, the common perception is the money will be used for alcohol, drugs or cigarettes. Even if a donation of food or drink is given to safeguard your donation, it is very awkward as people have to make assumptions of what the person would like and when. The alternative is to engage with that person, ask the question and purchase what’s required which many feel uncomfortable doing. Billy recognized that the likelihood of someone having the time, inclination, courage, and kindness to engage with a homeless person to buy them food or drink was too big a challenge. That was the eureka moment when he first thought up the concept of the BillyChip®️. Sadly Billy never got to launch the BillyChip as planned due to his untimely death whilst backpacking in Thailand.

Educating girls leads to more peaceful and equitablSouth Sudan is facing a range of humanitarian emergencies from conflict to economic instability and severe food insecurity situation. Nearly 7.5 million people, including 54% children, are in need of humanitarian assistance. The impact of the pandemic with the closure of schools has eradicated all past gains made in the education sector. The number of girls enrolled in primary and secondary schools decreased by 84% when schools reopened after the national lockdown. Girls are exposed to social and economic challenges faced by their families leading to sexual exploitation through forced and early marriage and early-unintended pregnancy. The protective environment provided by the school, friends and teachers, has all been taken away from the girls by the closure of schools due to COVID-19 leaving the girls vulnerable.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis in the country, schools are closing at each pick outbreak and children do not have tools to follow home-learning. With the provision of solar radio, secondary school children will be able to follow live classes all year long.

Our mission is to enable families to make memories together through play and having fun. This will also enable the children and their families to experience precious moments of ‘normality', which are too often taken for granted by most of us.

We provide grants to families affected by childhood cancer to enable them to buy play equipment or fund days out with their children. We also provide the play teams in the Children’s Oncology wards in Leeds Children’s Hospital (where Fletcher was treated), Great North Children’s Hospital in Newcastle and Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital with Arts and Crafts bags to be given to children in isolation.

Art and craft materials

Childhood cancer is the most common medical cause of death of children in the UK. Every year, just under 4,000 children and young adults receive this life changing diagnosis. The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust is working to raise awareness of childhood cancer and the signs and symptoms with which it may present. We produce educational resources for parents and clinicians, provide support to families and fund research into rare cancers of childhood. The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust was founded in memory of 4 year old Grace Kelly who passed away in 2014. The vision of the Trust was born from the inspiration that Grace imparted on the people she met. Grace was a compassionate and caring little girl, who looked after others before herself. We are making a difference to other children whilst fulfilling Grace's wish of helping others. Because The Children Of Today All Deserve A Tomorrow

The Harvey Hext Trust WISHES FOR

Bespoke Memory box and a Memory bear for a bereaved child

£200.00



We provide large A4 bespoke, personalised, Memory boxes of exceptional quality to help bereaved children remember someone who has died. When you lose a child there is often very little support for the bereaved sibling. The Memory boxes are a very simple, but effective way of helping a sibling remember their brother or sister and preserve their very precious and personal memories. The Child has full control over the design process and choosesa background theme and colour for their memory boxes. The photos are also chosen by the children and when the design has been aproved by the child it is digitally printed and heat sealed onto the Memory box. The designing of the Memory boxes is often used as a therapy by many bereavement services across the UK and every child in the family designs and receives their own Memory box so that the box belongs to them and only them.

We do not charge for our service as we are fully self funded.

Please note: Our large A4 wooden Memory boxes and bears are only supplied  to bereaved children under the age of 25yrs.. 

Our Memory Boxes are supplied to families through bereavement service referrals; we do not sell boxes directly.

GRANT WISH
A conflict-affected young woman in East Africa WISHES FOR

A tertiary distance learning scholarship, to complete her Master degree over 3 years.

£4550.00



Distance Learning is a potentially powerful tool for achieving our commitment to gender equity. With many suitably qualified female candidates from East Africa unable to study outside of their home region for family or cultural reasons, this means that applications and selected candidates for traditional UK based scholarship programmes continue to be overwhelmingly male dominated. This in turn risks perpetuating and further entrenching the status quo where females are marginalised in education. Opportunities for Distance Learning offer the possibility of overcoming this barrier to inclusivity.

Windle International empowers people to make lasting change in their own lives, in their communities and in wider society. We do this by creating access to quality education and training across East Africa and the Horn of Africa for refugees, communities affected by conflict, and those who have been marginalised in society. Our alumni reached positions ranging from senior Ministers to NGO leaders, development professionals, doctors, engineers and teachers amongst others. We believe that positive change is achieved, and peaceful societies are created, when the people who have been most affected by conflict are empowered to become change-makers in their communities. 





GRANT WISH
A bereaved family member affected by a Covid Loss WISHES FOR

professional trauma and loss counselling

£40.00



During the present Covid crisis we have extended our objectives to include services for those who have lost during the coronavirus pandemic.  

When the Covid – 19 crisis began to emerge we grew very concerned that families who lost during this time would have not had the “non World” bereavement experience and reflected on how this would be affecting those concerned and their mental health. To lose a loved one and not be able to visit them in their last moments, see them after they had died and at times not been able to attend their funerals leaves a huge gap and perhaps lack of acceptance and form of reality and this would have effects on a person’s emotional well-being. With that in mind we began the process to adapt to the current crisis and try to help.

GRANT WISH
Homeless person WISHES FOR

5 hot or cold takeaway drinks

£10.00



Your donation will pay for 5 BillyChips, which can be redeemed for food and drink at any participating outlet.

BillyChip®️ Foundation registered charity 1188779 was set up in 2018 to continue the legacy of Billy Abernethy-Hope a twenty-year-old ambulance driver from Bristol who was the inspiration and idea behind the BillyChip®️. After helping support the homeless at Christmas, Billy felt disheartened at how little support the general public gave to local homeless people. Many people donate to charity on a regular basis but Billy was surprised what a small percentage of donations were given directly to people living rough on our streets. Turns out most people are apprehensive to give money directly to homeless people because it's not possible to know how a donation is spent.

Unfortunately, the common perception is the money will be used for alcohol, drugs or cigarettes. Even if a donation of food or drink is given to safeguard your donation, it is very awkward as people have to make assumptions of what the person would like and when. The alternative is to engage with that person, ask the question and purchase what’s required which many feel uncomfortable doing. Billy recognized that the likelihood of someone having the time, inclination, courage, and kindness to engage with a homeless person to buy them food or drink was too big a challenge. That was the eureka moment when he first thought up the concept of the BillyChip®️. Sadly Billy never got to launch the BillyChip as planned due to his untimely death whilst backpacking in Thailand.
