The Big Give Christmas Challenge

A massive thank you to everyone who has donated during the Big Give Christmas Challenge.

biggivethankyou-frontlarge

A total of 265 of you have helped us reach our target of doubling £10,000 to £20,000 less than half way through the 72 hour period! Every donation large and small will be put to work to sound the alarm about Africa’s new debt trap in 2017.

If you didn’t manage to get your donation doubled, it’s not too late to support our work. You can still make a one-off donation via the Big Give or set up a regular donation via JustGiving.

Thank you again to everyone who donated. Do make sure you’re on our email list to keep in touch with the campaign in 2017.


About The Big Give

WHAT ARE YOU FUNDRAISING FOR?
We’re raising funds for our campaign on Africa’s debt trap: averting a new crisis. Debts are spiralling across Africa, threatening the lives, livelihoods and wellbeing of millions of people. This project will tackle the UK’s role and support debt campaigners in affected countries to secure immediate relief and long-term solutions to the debt-poverty trap.

HOW DO I DONATE?
The Big Give starts at 12 noon on Tuesday 29 November and runs for 72 hours. You can donate by going to the Jubilee Debt Campaign page on The Big Give website.

I TRIED IN THE PAST BUT MATCHED FUNDS RAN OUT TOO QUICKLY
In previous years we were in competition with other charities for matched funds, so they sometimes ran out very quickly. But this year that isn’t the case, so you will be able to make a matched donation at any time in the 72 hours, or until we have reached our target.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF IT SAYS THE CHALLENGE IS COMPLETE?
If we reach our target of £10,000 of donations (doubled to £20,000), our challenge will be marked complete and further matched donations will not be possible. However, you will still be able to make an unmatched donation.

HOW WILL MY DONATION BE DOUBLED?
Donations will be doubled from pledges already made by Jubilee Debt Campaign supporters to match donations we receive during the Challenge.

WHAT DO I NEED IN ORDER TO DONATE ONLINE?
You will need a debit or credit card and a working internet connection.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?
If you have any other questions, phone the Jubilee Debt Campaign office on 020 7324 4722.
