Is This Movie Suitable Charity Donations

 

We at Is This Movie Suitable launched our website with the aim of helping both parents and children to enjoy movies safely and with peace of mind.

As a husband and wife team, we are proud to support a number of charities that we believe stand for the same principles that we do.

RNIB – Royal National Institute of Blind People

We collect stamps and send them to the RNIB who can then raise money from recycling them.

If you are interested in sending your stamps to them, please click here for further information.

The RNIB also recycle the following items:

  • inkjet and toner cartridges
  • mobile phones
  • MP3 players
  • digital cameras
  • hand-held game consoles
  • CDs and DVDs
  • satellite navigation systems.

Macmillan Cancer Support

We recently held a ‘Big Coffee Morning’ in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and raised £75 by selling homemade and shop bought cakes. We do this on an annual basis.

Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People

We will be doing the ‘Walk of Life’ for Rainbows (Charity Registration No. 1014051) on 29th June 2014. Laura will be doing the 3 mile walk with our son, James, in the buggy and Mike will take on the more challenging 10 mile route.Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People

Rainbows is a charity based in the East Midlands of England. It operates as a hospice for children and young people with the mantra that children need a place to ‘play, laugh and love life’, and ‘a place where they and their families are cared for and supported’.

Please help support us in our charity drive for this worthy cause by taking part in fundraising or donating. If you would like to sponsor us, please click here. We are using the Just Giving service to accept donations which is an independent service. When donating through Just Giving no money ever enters our account,  thus ensuring the money you donate goes directly to the charity on completion of our walk.

Update: Laura, Mike and James completed their walks successfully and raised a whopping £255.00 for the charity. Many thanks to all who donated!

Samaritans Purse

For the last two years we have supported the Samaritan’s Purse initiative ‘Operation Christmas Child’ where we fill a shoe box full of toys, school equipment, hygiene items and sweets for underprivileged children in developing countries.

Samaritan’s Purse is a Christian relief and development charity working amongst communities in need in Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Their annual drive ‘Operation Christmas Child’ encourages much needed donations for children in poverty to be able to celebrate Christmas with gifts that will enhance their lives. While the charity is a Christian organisation, no religious literature is ever put into the boxes for the children; the children are able to take information if they so wish but nothing is ever pushed.

If you wish to take part in Operation Christmas Child, you can build a shoebox here. Here are where our shoe boxes have gone so far:

2014 – Serbia

2015 – Swaziland

We have more charitable work in the pipeline, so watch this space!
