Birthday Giving for Charity

Give the gift of helping others with our range of birthday gift ideas

Give something back on your big day

For big events, you can help give back to causes that are close to your heart. We have a number of ways to raise vital funds by giving people the chance to purchase video cards in aid of our Local Air Ambulance and Children’s Air Ambulance.

There are also some guidelines on how to ask for donations from loved ones instead of cards and presents. This offers a huge opportunity for charities to gain extra income that can be so vital for keeping their services going.

SEND A VIDEO CARD

We have partnered with Your Big Day for supporters to send a video card to loved ones.

Choose to support either your Local Air Ambulance or the Children’s Air Ambulance using the codes AirAmb or Childrens at the checkout when you purchase your cards.

 £6+vat  comes to our charity with every sale.

 

What’s included within the video card?

You can expect the video card to be full of news items, historical information and celebrities who has the same birthday, making this the perfect present for someone who wants to know a little more about their special day.

 

Your Big Birthday Give

 

Whether you celebrate your birthday in style or prefer to let it pass by without any fuss, have you ever considered the difference you could make?

Save your friends and family the hassle of buying presents and instead, ask for a donation towards Your Big Birthday Give, where the money you raise could help towards;

  • Keeping our helicopters flying and Critical Care Cars on the road
  • Stocking medical supplies and specialist equipment carried on-board
  • Advanced training for our specialist teams to conduct critical treatment

Set Up Your Big Birthday Gift

 

Step 1: Let us know when your birthday is, even if it’s months away so we can offer support for your fundraising.

Step 2:  Set up Your Big Birthday Give JustGiving page and share it with everyone you know for the donations to roll in.

Step 3: Pay in the donations you’ve received and we’ll send you a birthday card from the crew to say thank for helping keep your services flying.
