20 Dec Christmas List
This week at Smart Pups…
I would like to draw your attention to our Smart Pups Campaign page and simply ask you to consider including one extra child on your Christmas list this year.
Please take some time to read the words written by families who are currently desperately seeking funds to help their fundraising efforts for a Smart Pup for their son or daughter. I hope you will see the common theme that I noticed, that is how much each of these children are loved and cherished by those who know them.
Without an exception every one of the families featured on the campaign page are survivors. Hard working parents and carers who put everything else in life on hold to help their child, who take every new diagnosis and every set back with amazing fortitude and resilience.
Asking for help from strangers is a difficult thing to do and these wonderful families have overtime become accustomed to being as positive as they can be, so the truth of the daily challenges faced is not always fully expressed.
Each day waiting for a Smart Pup is another day of worry and heartache. A parent’s fear of losing sight of their run-away child, or of not hearing a night time seizure, or of missing the signs of a diabetic low. Each day waiting is another day of missed opportunities for a precious child and their family.
Any donation, no matter how small, to any of the families featured is a gift that will surpass any other gift you buy this year. Your gift along with the contributions of other wonderful supporters will keep on giving year after year. You are helping to buy the gift of confidence, of freedom, of independence and companionship.
To donate directly to your chosen family campaign simply click on the link and then press the red DONATE button. 100% of your donation value will go directly to your chosen campaign account.
Thank you for your assistance and for all your support in 2018. From all the Smart Pups Team we send warm wishes for Christmas and wish you a happy 2019.
