Can You Give An Hour? #CharityTuesday

I’ve noticed a charity initiative currently being promoted by Heart FM – which is basically suggesting that as we all gain an hour, when the clocks go back on the 31st October, if some of us gave an hour (either in time or money) to Childline then we could make a huge difference.

It breaks my heart to hear that not all the calls to Childline get answered. Just think, if we all donated one hour of our salaries this problem could be solved overnight!

Here is the appeal being run by Heart:

It is that time of year again that we all look forward, the clocks go back and we all gain an hour!

If you normally use your extra hour to sleep in, walk the dog or pop to the gym why not consider something a little bit different this year.

Alternatively why not give 60 minutes of your time and do something in that hour to raise money for Have a Heart?  You could have a cake sale at work, a sponsored silence at school or have some friends round for coffee at home.  There’s loads more suggestions on Heart’s A to Z of Fundraising Ideas.

A staggering 700,000 abused, bullied & worried children will contact ChildLine by the end of 2012, and without your help ChildLine can’t be there to answer or their call or be online.
