This year we will be taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge. We have been promised a ‘matching pot’ of funds, so any online donations we receive between 12pm on Tuesday 1st December and 12pm on Tuesday 8th December will be doubled, thus raising even more money for our new programme of music therapy for babies on neonatal wards.
Research has shown that music therapy for hospitalised babies can reduce environmental stress, increase oxygen levels and lower blood pressure, reduce pain and promote relaxation, as well as supporting neurological and physiological development. All these factors can help shorten the length of stay in hospital and create better long-term outcomes for a baby.
So, should you kindly be planning to make a donation to Jessie’s Fund between now and Christmas, if you save it up and make it between midday on Tuesday 1st and midday on Tuesday 8th December your money will be doubled: one donation – twice the impact. Donations must be made via the Big Give link, which will appear on our website and social media when the campaign goes live. If you’d like to add your email address to our e-newsletter mailing list so that you get a reminder on 1st December, click here.
