Spare Change September – Fundraising campaign

This September we’ve created a fun campaign for you to try out with your work colleagues, friends, weekly groups or at home.

Ever find you’re carrying around lots of loose change?

Print off our Spare Change September poster, find a money box, jar or container, and encourage everyone to empty their (heavy) pockets for the support of New Life Home Trust. 

Whether you keep it by your front door at home, take it to your local club (Girl Guides, Swimming club, Church fate, Slimming World etc.) or have it in the workplace, this campaign is not only a great way to raise some extra pennies for us, but it’s a good way to spread awareness and get people talking.

See someone eyeing up the poster? Go over and chat to them about the work of New Life and share how they could get involved.

Don’t carry cash? That doesn’t mean you can’t contribute.

Share a link to our Virgin Money Giving page with your office, family Whatsapp group or friends on Facebook and remember our 250 for £10 campaign where we’re trying to find 250 new donors in 2018 to give £10 per month – the equivalent of a couple coffees, a cinema ticket or a few rides on the bus (charitable and good for the environment!).

Become a New Life donor as part of our ‘250 for 10’ campaign

This month we are kickstarting a new marketing campaign with the goal to gain 250 new donors who are willing to donate £10 a month. This way we can support our partner charity, New Life Home Trust Kenya, who rescue and care for abandoned babies. Donors are the heart of our charity and we could not be without them. Could you become one?

Your money will go towards our four homes located in Kisumu, Nairobi, Nakuru and Nyeri. Over the last 20 years, 1,700 babies have been rescued by the charity with the majority having been adopted; 164 of which, were reunited with their biological families. The love and care these babies receive is only possible because of money already donated by lovely people like you. It costs around £400 a month to care for each baby in one of the four homes located in Kenya.

New Life Donor - New Life Home Trust UK

You may think that £10 a month is a lot to donate. However, by simply giving up say three coffee’s a month or maybe skipping a trip to the cinema, you can potentially save a child’s life. A simple, small gesture can make a huge difference.

If we are able to secure 250 new donors, that will bring an additional £30,000 into our charity each year, which goes a long way toward supporting our work. With an extra £30,000, we can provide the love, care and resources required for six or more babies and children to stay in our homes for a whole year. A small amount from a large number of people really does go a long way.

If you already donate to us then thank you, but why don’t you invite a friend to join the movement? It will be a great way to increase the New Life Home Trust’s awareness and provide children with a safe place to call home.

Head over to our Virgin Money Giving page to give your donation or read more about what we do on our about page.

URGENT APPEAL: Bright eyes for baby Chloe

Baby Chloe is a beautiful little girl, nearly 18 months old.  She was rescued by New Life Home Trust when she was just 2 days old and is now a sweet, loveable, happy, and confident little girl with bright eyes and an angelic smile.

Little Chloe has been apparently healthy so far, but recently her left eye was noticed to have a yellow/white pupil reflex and, following an examination under anaesthetic here in Kenya, she was diagnosed with advanced retinoblastoma (cancer of the retina) in her left eye.  This form of cancer is rare but, if treated quickly, the survival rate is 95%.

Unfortunately, retinoblastoma is not treatable in Kenya and the Consultant Paediatric Eye Surgeon here in Kenya is urging us to take baby Chloe to the UK immediately for urgent and vital eye-saving and life-saving treatment.

We, therefore, call on all our friends around the globe to partner with us in prayer and generous giving to help fund Chloe’s treatment and travel costs.

Until Chloe sees a specialist in the UK, we will not know the full cost of the treatment.  However, we are setting an initial target of GBP 70,000 or KES 10,000,000 to get the ball rolling and Chloe airborne!

If you would like to give, you can give online via our Virgin Money Giving Chloe Appeal.

Alternatively, you can arrange a bank transfer or set up a standing order by emailing us at admin@newlifehometrust.org.uk.

Thank you so much for your support.

Please note, donations which have been given through our general Virgin Money Giving Page that are marked as ‘baby Chloe’ will go towards this appeal. The recent creation of the Chloe-specific page is to help future donors to be able to give directly towards her treatment.

Sponsor a Cot this Christmas

This Christmas, instead of buying overpriced toiletry gift sets or yet another pair of socks, why not buy a gift with a difference?

Sponsoring a cot with New Life Home Trust is a gift that can really change lives. When you sponsor a cot, your money could go towards saving and transforming a baby’s life in Kenya.

At New Life Home Trust we strive to make each baby feel loved and to have the best possible chance for a new life. The help and support of our sponsors is invaluable in providing continued care.

When you sponsor a cot, New Life Home Trust is able to provide space, love and care for abandoned babies. However, anyone who has a baby or has looked after babies will know that they require a lot of supplies. It costs around £400 to care for each baby in one of the New Life homes in Kenya.

By sponsoring a cot this Christmas you could help to contribute towards:

180 Nappies per baby a month (over 23000 nappies!)
130 cots available for abandoned babies available across Kenya.
210 bottles of milk a month for each baby (over 27000 altogether!)
Over a ton of baby clothes washed and dried each month, by hand, for all the babies.
Each baby will be fed, cuddled and soothed thousands of times by the carers and volunteers.
Doctors will be called and medicine paid for and given to any baby who needs it.
The guards at the gate will keep each baby safe day & night.

As a New Life Home Trust sponsor, you will play a vital part of changing a child’s life for the better. Instead of buying a gift that will sit on the shelf collecting dust, sponsor a cot and set the foundations for the rest of a baby or child’s life.

To give the gift of a healthy, happy start in life this Christmas for yourself, a friend or a family member, download a copy of our leaflet here then email us to express your interest. Your monthly donations can be anything from £10 to £1,000… every little helps! Christmas Sponsor A Cot donors will receive a printable Christmas certificate.

Together, we’re running a collective Christmas campaign to aim to cover the cost of a cot for a whole year (£4,800). If you could contribute a little, (or a lot!) donate online here!

You can also donate to the general work of New Life Home Trust, by setting up a monthly or one-off payment here.
