The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2017

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that takes place on the Tuesday following Black Friday and is a chance to give something back after a weekend of sales and shopping! #GivingTuesday gives you the chance to give something back to others in need around the world.

From donating and fundraising to simply spreading the word via social media or by word of mouth, this is your chance to give children with cancer around the world the gift of growing up. There are a number of ways you can get involved including:


World Child Cancer has been chosen to participate in The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2017 to raise funds for our Malawi programme. The Big Give is a non-profit website which enables donors to find and support charity projects. The Christmas Challenge runs from Tuesday 28th November to Tuesday December 5th during which time all donations from the public are matched by donations from philanthropists.

World Child Cancer will work with local and international partners to grow our model of cancer support in Malawi and the development of services for children with cancer and their families.

Donations from the UK public will be doubled by the UK government so you will also be supporting children in Ghana.

Speak up on social media:

Retweet, share, like and comments on our posts across Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to help raise awareness of childhood cancer in low and middle income countries. Every 3 minutes a child with cancer dies in a low and middle country. With your support going twice as far on #GivingTuesday, this is your chance to Stop the Childhood Cancer Clock and gift the gift of growing up to children with cancer this festive season.
