Here at Macmillan Cancer Support, we were so delighted to be chosen as one of two charities to receive donations from giffgaff’s community. Thank you so much for showing such support for our work supporting people affected by cancer.
Being told ‘you have cancer’ can affect so much more than your health – your family, your job, even your ability to pay the bills. But you’re still you. And, after over 100 years of helping people through cancer, we get what’s most important: that you’re treated as a person, not just a patient.
Save the Children was one of the top two charities nominated by giffgaffers for this December's charity vote, and will be receiving community Payback this December. To help you choose which charity you'd like to support, we invited them to write a guest post detailing the great work your donations will help make happen.
The British Heart Foundation was one of the top two charities nominated by giffgaffers for this December's charity vote, and will be receiving community Payback this December. To help you choose which charity you'd like to support, we invited them to write a guest post detailing the great work your donations will help make happen.
UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, was one of the top charities nominated by giffgaffers for this December's charity vote, committed to refugee relief for the people who need it most. Right now, they're supporting refugees all over the world, including those fleeing violence in Myanmar. Joung-ah Ghedini-Williams from UNHCR recounts a day in the refugee camp for them in Bangladesh.
The Internet Watch Foundation was one of the most highly-nominated causes from giffgaff's recent charity vote. The work they do is instrumental in making sure that child sexual abuse images are not proliferated around the web, and that the children involved are brought to safety. We asked them to expand a little on the difficult, but vital, work that they do every day.
Please be aware that this blog does contain a story of an abuse incident one IWF analyst dealt with, which some members may find disturbing.
Whale and Dolphin Conservation was one of the top charities nominated by giffgaffers for this December's charity vote, and the leading global charity committed to protecting whales, dolphins and porpoises. We invited them to write a guest post to explain a little more about themselves, and their current #NotWhaleFood campaign.
