We are pleased to announce that we have just completed our registration on Give.net, the popular charity online giving web site. Clicking on the Give.net logo on this page will take you straight to our donation page where you can make a gift to us.
If you want to hold a fundraising event for the benefit of our charity, you can also do this on the Give.net website. Just set up a fund raising account at Give.net and then search for the Cornel Romanian Rehabilitation Centre Trust when you are setting up your fund raising page. All of the donations that you receive for your event will then come straight to us.
We think we are doing a great job helping our disadvantaged, disabled friends in Romania and I’m sure you are all with us. However, the process of making a donation to a charity or other cause that you support is often difficult. So, we’ve just set up an account with JustTextGiving which will enable you to send a donation to the charity by mobile phone using a standard text message. One of the great things about this facility is that all of the costs are carried by the service sponsor (Vodafone). This means that you don’t pay anything extra to donate and we don’t get charged any administration charges to receive your donation. EVERYTHING you give comes to us!
In addition, if you are a UK taxpayer, we can reclaim an additional 25% of the gift you donate. This is all done automatically for us by JustTextGiving, so long as you reply “YES” to the text you get back in response to your gift.
So, what is stopping you from giving today? We’d love to see gifts of £100 or £500 but any gift, no matter how small, is equally appreciated. If £5 is all you can spare, that would be fantastic….. just send your text ‘CRRC13 £5‘ to 70070.
The Board of Trustees met yesterday (11th July) to review recent activities of the charity and to discuss future plans. We are really excited about some potential future developments but unfortunately, we’re not yet in a position to let you know about them! We just have a couple of hurdles to get over first that we’d appreciate your prayers for – that God would give us guidance and make our path clear. As soon as we are able to give details, we’ll be sure to post an update as quickly as we can as I’m sure you too will be as excited as us.
In the meantime, rest assured your donations are being put to great use and disadvantaged people in Romania are having their lives transformed. We are looking at different ways of making it easier to give; our Virgin Money Giving page should be available soon. Until then, please feel free to contact us to make bank transfer donations or cheque donations.
