Make a Wish Foundation UK: Helping special children’s dreams come true

Make a Wish Foundation - Remember May

Make a Wish Foundation – Remember May

There are a few charities that are close to my heart, and the Make a Wish Foundation UK is one of them. They give families such wonderful memories that, no matter what, can be cherished forever.

On the 31st August, 2010, a little princess lost her battle against a rare form of Cancer; Rhabdomyosarcoma. On the anniversary of her death, her father, Neil, agreed to make a short video to help launch a new campaign for the charity. He hopes it will enable all those other little princes and princess to have their wishes granted in the future; just with that little bit of extra support.

May’s wish was to be a special princess for the day. The memories of watching his little princess that day will help to ease the pain for Neil.

And with others help, Make a Wish Foundation UK can provide more unique memories for families to hold close. If you can spare the time, please go along to their Justgiving page to help the #remembermay campaign. The video is only a minute long; and its well worth watching to really understand just how special the memories that the charity creates are for the families involved. Over to Neil….


Helen is a mum to two, social media consultant, and website editor; and this site is (we think) the only Social Enterprise parenting magazine! Since giving up being a business analyst when juggling travel, work and kids proved too complicated, she founded KiddyCharts so she could be with her kids, and use those grey cells at the same time. KiddyCharts has reach of over 1.1million across social and the site. The blog works with big family brands (including travel) to help promote their services, as well as offering free resources to parents of kids under 10. It gives 51%+ profits to Reverence for Life, who fund a number of important initiatives in Africa, including bringing running water and basic equipment to a school in Tanzania. Helen has worked as a digital marketing consultant (IDM qualified) with various organisations, including Channel Mum, Truprint, Talk to Mums, and Micro Scooters. She loves to be creative in the brand campaigns she works on. Get in touch TODAY!
