April news -- Kath and Rupert's Wedding donations
On behalf of Seedling Trust, we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to Kath and Rupert for using the occasion of their wedding to fundraise for Seedling Trust, and we would also like to thank their friends, colleagues and family whose generous donations totalled more than HUF 600,000 (more than GBP 1770)! Thanks to people like you, we are able to make a difference every day in the lives of severely disabled children and youth. The funds, per the couple's request, will be allocated towards our culture programs.
If you'd like to dedicate your wedding gift registry to Seedling Trust, it's simple and easy -- please contact us!
Dear family and friends:
As you know, we're planning the happiest day of our lives for the end of May.
We feel that life has been very kind to us and we are in need of nothing -- so in lieu of wedding gifts, we have chosen to support a local Hungarian charity called Seedling Trust. We decided this because they are an organisation that are already making a big difference for some of Hungary's children and young people who otherwise would be forgotten.
We believe in the people there and are impressed that all donations go straight to making these kids' lives so much better. We wanted to find a charity that was local and where we feel that any money we made could make a tangible difference....A little can go a very long way. These children like all children, as well as basic care, need stimulation for the body, mind and soul.
Some examples of what donations can do:
25 pounds = Concert tickets for 4 participants and their minders
50 pounds = A museum visit for 5 participants and their minders
80 pounds = one monthly on-site handicrafts class for 5 participants
With your help we can go someway towards providing raising enough money to finance weekly outings to arts and music events for a whole year for children and young people who otherwise have to spend much of their time in the confines of an institution. You can find out more about their programs by contacting their staff or browsing through this website.
If you would like to make a donation, we and these lovely, well deserving children and youth would be delighted. Thank you in advance for your generosity, and here is the link if you wish to use bank transfer or PayPal.
Please note that this PayPal account is set up to accept donations in Hungarian forints only. This does NOT mean that you cannot make a donation in EUR or Sterling, but the amount shown will be in forints.
Current exchange rate for the forint to the pound: 332 forints = 1 pound
Current exchange rate for the forint to the Euro: 290 forints = 1 EUR
Thank you for your understanding! Further, please note that unfortunately donations cannot be deducted from your taxes because Hungarian tax law does not permit this; the Trust is indeed a registered, respected organisation with a high level of integrity and effectiveness at carrying out what we think is an extremely important mission.
We'll keep you continuously updated about donations and let you know what the end result was and what we're able to accomplish with your gifts. We hope our wedding will be an occasion for us to leave an enduring and meaningful gift.
Kath and Rupert
We depend on voluntary funding - any small amount - or kind support is highly appreciated. It takes so little to do so much...
