Support our Tree of Stars Regular Donor campaign

 

Could you be a SiMBA Star? 

We need your support, now more than ever, to allow us to continue to fund our core services.


By making a Regular Monthly Donation towards SiMBA you are allowing us to continue to provide our vital services - supporting anyone affected by the loss of a baby during pregnancy or shortly after birth and we want to say thank you.

So for everyone who signs up to become a regular donor from the 1st December to the 31st January, we will send you a special star in February.

Whether you choose to support us in memory of your baby or a baby who is close to your heart, these funds will go to help someone else in need. Your donation will allow us to provide all of our core services including Memory Boxes to bereaved families allowing them to create memories of their much-wanted baby that will last a lifetime and will be forever held in their hearts.  

It will allow us to continue to provide bereavement training to Health Care professionals and students empowering those individuals to go on to support a bereaved family in their Memory Making and provide the highest levels of bereavement care. 

It will allow us to continue to provide our Safe Space virtual support groups, and when it is safe to do so, our monthly Support Groups. 

It will allow us to continue to refurbish our Family Rooms and to install our memorial Trees of Tranquillity offering bereaved families the opportunity to honour their baby in a very special way. In short, it will allow us to continue to be here.

Thanks to all of you who have signed up so far to be a regular donor by direct debit, your donation means so much to us especially at this time!  

Could you donate even just £2 a month to help us?  We know that 2020 has been difficult and that money is tight so anything you can manage would be such a big help.  

We’ve attached the regular donations form below, donation amounts are listed as £2, £5, £10, £25 but there’s also the option to choose ‘Other’ and enter in any amount that is manageable for you.  As little as a £1 would make such a difference to us.  There’s also a drop-down menu to choose weekly, monthly, quarterly or once a year for your payments.  This is entirely up to you but we are grateful for any support that you can give.  

Please note that your regular donation will be taken directly from your bank account on the date that you complete the form, unfortunately we can’t change this date.

Remember to add, if relevant, the name of the baby you are donating in memory of at the bottom of the form, so that we can say thank you, and if you tick the Gift Aid box then we can reclaim an additional 25% from HMRC too.

We cannot tell you how much your support means to us. No matter what you donate, it will go a long way to helping bereaved parents at the most tragic time.

Here are some examples of how much your regular gift means to the families we support:

“We hold onto this box for all its worth, and will treasure it until the day we both die.  Our memory box sits pride of place in our house…”

“Our twins hearts stopped around eight weeks, SiMBA helped so much by acknowledging them as babies who had died, we didn’t get far in our journey with them, no happy scans, no kicks no cuddles, having the Memory Box made them real, they existed and they are remembered for that, I’ll be forever grateful”

"Being given the memory box was the biggest point for me.  I felt it acknowledged the loss – I had something tangible”.  

“SiMBA support groups will always hold a special place in my heart as they have given me the opportunity to talk about my son and for that I will be eternally grateful. When people ask me about my son it fills me with love and this is why I cherish my time with the group.”

“A leaf on The Tree of Tranquility means so much as it gives us a lasting memorial for our little boy Robert, where we can go as a family to reflect even though you never forget your little one that you have lost this gives you somewhere to visit for a little closure to help with the pain.”

Any amount you can offer is such a help to us just now.  Thank you for all your support, you truly are our SiMBA Stars.
