Go Orange for a Day
Go Orange for a Day encourages people to dress up in orange for muscular dystrophy, a condition affecting many including myself. Previously, I wrote a post on coping and I am planning on writing posts about my disability experiences. By doing this I hope to raise awareness on Muscular Dystrophy and raise money for Muscular Dystrophy UK (MDUK), the leading charity for muscle-wasting conditions.
Check out some of my disability experience posts:
If you want to get involved, head on over to muscular dystrophy UK to find out more. Essentially all you will you will need to do is register your school and organisation or set up your own fundraising page to get involved. The day will be in February the 1st, so there is plenty of time for you to get involved.
Alternatively, if you would rather not dress up in orange, sharing or even making others aware on the event can make so much difference. I have set up a fundraising page specifically for rasing money for Muscular Dystrophy UK. If you would like to give, you can do so by going here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/orange-samuel
As a reminder, if you are donating don’t forget tick the GiftAid box if you pay tax. Doing this can help raise more money for MDUK and will enable your donations to stretch further as well. Not sure what GiftAid is? Check out this .gov uk page to learn more about GiftAid.
For me, your help would mean millions. The support MDUK provide for those with muscular dystrophy and their families is essential to help well-being, supporting equipment costs and helping find a cure for the many muscular dystrophy types. Hopefully by reading this post, you will have enough details to help change lives.
Finally, don’t forget to keep checking back on Dynamic Double for future experiences, reviews and posts on future fundraising.
