CamKids Xmas Appeal

The credit crunch is hitting charities hard at the moment, with many donors understandably cutting back on their spending. In addition, for charities like ours, whose expenditure is linked to the US Dollar, our income is being badly eroded by the fall in the value of the £.

If you feel that you can help us to help a child in Cambodia, please give whatever you feel you can afford. A small amount really does go a long way in Cambodia - for example, £3 is enough to send a child to school at our Education Project in Takeo for a whole year!! We can assure you that any amount you raise will be put to great use. At CamKids, we are all volunteers, have all of our services donated to us and so we can guarantee that 100% of any money you raise will go DIRECTLY to the children.

Lots of our supporters have decided to ask friends and family to make donations to CamKids, rather than send them presents this year. If you would also like to do this, please ask them to make the payment to our JustGiving Xmas Appeal site:

Alternatively, you can set up your own JustGiving site in favour of CamKids, so that you can keep track on how much you have raised. Just go to: Much easier than chasing people for cash and sending off a cheque. It is quick and easy and means that you don’t need to chase your sponsors / donors for the money. If you are a UK taxpayer, JustGiving will reclaim an additional 28% in Gift Aid from the UK government, on our behalf.

Thank you for supporting CamKids – we are really grateful to all of our friends and supporters and the Trustees would like to wish you a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.
