Our Annual Christmas Challenge

There are many kind people who think about giving to those in a less fortunate position than themselves at Christmas. Each year Mango Tree Goa holds a Christmas Challenge throughout the month of December. We hope our appeal will hold a special place in the hearts of those who wish to give disadvantaged children in Goa a brighter future and that supporters will add Mango Tree to their Christmas present list.

Every donation that Mango Tree receives is really important to us and makes a difference to disadvantaged children. However, during the month of December donors have the amazing opportunity to double their donation or proceeds from a fundraiser. The chance to double the amount donated or raised is made possible by a pledge from supporters to give an agreed amount if other supporters donate or raise an equivalent sum during the Challenge weekend. The amount pledged each year is announced in mid November. We are delighted to announce that for the 2017 Christmas Challenge the amount pledged is £5,000 and the challenge will start a little earlier, on November 30th. Quite simply all donations will be matched pound for pound until the £5,000 pledged has all been matched. If a donor gives £10 there is a good chance that we’ll receive £20. In fact with Gift Aid added a £5 donation could be worth £12.50, a £10 donation could be worth £25, a £50 donation could be worth £125. It is a fabulous fundraiser which we really rely on.
