The greatest stories of 2018
❤️ Saving birds
Great news for all the bird lovers! The Eagle Club of Estonia has collected over €4,000 to raise public awareness of these endangered species, and contribute to their survival.
❤️ Climbing out of depression
This inspiring project provides climbing as an activity, offered to anyone suffering from depression. Thanks to 100 contributions and over £5,800 collected, the organisation will be able to buy equipment and pay trainers, to help people relieve the pain and anxiety associated with depression.
❤️ Zoi’s battle
Only 18 months old, Zoi has been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. She is currently undergoing a treatment and facing a difficult and long road to recovery. Her family created a money pot and collected more than €7,300, hoping that Zoi could later tell her kids the story of how she beat cancer!
A big thank you to all the money pot organisers for their beautiful initiative and contributors for their generous support. You made 2018 exceptional! We look forward to creating many more memorable moments together with you!
