This year, we want you to reflect on ‘who helped me get here?’ to recognise the importance of support and give thanks to those who helped us in developing and maintaining our careers.
All of our Lawscot Foundation scholars have had to overcome challenging personal circumstances in their early life. The support they receive from the Lawscot Foundation in helping them achieve their aspirations has been the inspiration for this year’s Christmas campaign. All that support, stems from you...
So, this year we’re encouraging people to buy a bauble for our Lawscot Foundation tree to say ‘thank you’ to someone who has helped them, with all the proceeds raised going to the charity to support more young people. As well as adding a bauble to our tree, every donor will get a digital bauble with their message of thanks on it ready for you to share.
It costs £2500 per year to support one student through the Lawscot Foundation. This year our target is to raise that exact amount. Any donation, big or small, will make a difference.
To track our progress we have split our tree into five sections so you can see how your donation is helping us achieve that goal. Each time we meet a target, a section of the tree will be coloured in.
Sharing your digital bauble is a great way to show your support publicly and help us spread the message of Baublefest!
We would love it if you could post your bauble on social media using the hashtag #Baublefest
However, you can absolutely be an anonymous donor if you prefer - it's completely your decision. There is an option to 'keep my donation anonymous' when you donate.
Simply make a donation and tell us your message. We will do the rest.
Thank you and Merry Christmas
Some of the young people we help have faced unimaginable challenges at such a young age – being in care; being a carer for their parents or siblings; being made homeless; poverty. Yet they have worked hard and got into university as a result of their own hard work and dedication.
