Our birthday!

17 April
to 31 August


This summer, Once Upon a Smile will be 13!

If you would like to donate to our birthday campaign taking place during August, we would be truly grateful.

There are many ways in which you could help us continue to support bereaved families at their time of need.

But if you can help by organising a birthday fundraiser for us, we would really appreciate it 

Here are some example fundraising activities:

  • Set up your own workplace or with friends a fundraising challenge such as a birthday bake off- who is the better baker?
  • 12:12 challenge with colleagues. 12 years, a donation for each year. Run, Swim, Walk.
  • Donate directly to our JustGiving page, every pound you can donate really does make a massive difference.
  • Raise awareness of what we do and how you help by sharing how you support Once Upon a Smile on social media. #OUAS

By donating:

  • £20 provides a school with a We’re Here For You, bereavement comfort bag.
  • £100 if you can support a family this summer with buying food.
  • £200 will help towards the costs of school uniforms for two children.
  • £500 will support costs towards a respite break for a family or an activity for a group.

If you would like support on setting up a fundraiser or would like more information, please contact [email protected]
