Double your Donations with The Big Give 2018

It's the most wonderful time of the year - The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2018!

Each year, The Big Give hosts the UK's biggest online match fundraising campaign - where every pound you give is matched, doubling your donation.

All donations through the Cardboard Citizens Big Give portal between 12noon, Tuesday 27 November and 12noon Tuesday 4 December will be doubled, so you have a chance to make a real impact.

This year, we're raising funds to help our Members - people with experience of homelessness, or at risk of becoming homeless.

We want to break the barriers that prevent our Members accessing our services and support - the things that stop people participating in our workshop programme, or achieving qualifications through our learning support. Here's what we do »

Donations will also go towards our discretionary hardship fund that supports Members with urgent need - giving people vital support at moments of crisis.

Here's how you can help:

  • Donate - from Tuesday 27 November, head to our Big Give portal, and make a donation, however big or small, which will then be doubled (£20 donated will become £40)! Set yourself a reminder and watch out for stories on Twitter and Instagram.
  • Share - tell your friends, point them towards our blog and social media, and let's make a huge impact!
  • Plan - make a plan, fundraise, and submit any donations through the Big Give portal. Maybe you want to make a donation instead of sending Christmas cards... Or have a bake sale, or jumble sale... What ideas can you think of that are suitably Citz-y?
