Did you know that the UK public are spending over £1.7bn on greeting cards annually?*

Many people like to spread the festive cheer in their office or workplace by sending cards to their colleagues during the holiday season. This year instead of sending cards, your place of work could get involved with Brainwave’s Message in a Bauble campaign and donate in lieu of cards.

Simply display the Message in a Bauble poster in a visible place at your work, your colleagues and/or clients can then write a message on a bauble sticker and place it on the tree in the poster. We recommend that a minimum donation of £2 is then placed in the Brainwave collection box - the average price of a pack of Christmas cards.

It’s a great way of physically writing a festive message to everyone at once, helping to reduce waste (and RSI!) and raise vital funds for Brainwave! We’d love to see your tree filling up with messages, so please do share a picture on social media and tag us in your posts.

We are hoping the campaign will raise over £3,000.

£3,000 is the average cost of providing our full range of services to one child, for one year. We currently have over 400 children on our Brainwave Therapy Programme. The children we see make incredible progress by receiving physical and educational therapies from our multidisciplinary team of qualified therapists. We are an independent charity that complements the NHS and we do not receive any government funding.

Pay your fundraising money in!
