Donations received - update from the school

Posted on 24th November, 2014

All of us at WedAid would like to thank you for the continued support, donations and help sharing the love with those less fortunate.

We were over the moon to receive images from our contacts in Zimbabwe, showing the distribution of school uniforms to some of the students of Chikupo Primary School and Chikupo Secondary School. 

Remember, you can help us out this Christmas by doing your shopping online and using Give as you Live.

School equipment for Africa

Posted on 7th October, 2013

WedAid has kindly been donated some equipment from a Birmingham school in the UK which was being demolished and moved into a new building.  Facilitated by the contractors to the site, North Birmingham Academy provided desks, chairs, books and some gym equipment for schools and orphanages identified by WedAid.

These items are being consolidated and will soon be packed into a container bound for Harare... watch this space for further information.

 

WedAid have teamed up with Give As You Live (TM) to allow you to shop with all your favourite online retails (including Amazon, Marks & Spencer, John Lewis, PC World and many more).  For every purchase you make the retailer will give a donation to WedAid.... at no extra cost to you!  It's a great opporutnity to help WedAid while doing your normal shopping - every penny counts :-) 

 

Please click http://www.giveasyoulive.com/join/wedaid/ct53814 and download the toolbar to your PC or Laptop. This will automatically track any linked online retailers and give you the opportunity to donate a percentage of your total bill to WedAid.

 

 

For a list of all retailers involved in this great opportunity, please visit http://www.giveasyoulive.com/brands.  So far the Give As You Live site has raised nearly £4 million pounds for charities.

 

Please spread the word and make you online shopping make a difference in a child's life.  Many thanks for your support.

WedAid - share the love!

Posted on 7th August, 2013

Hurrah and welcome to our first post - WedAid have just received the great news that we've achieved registerd charity status (Number 1153279).

 

WedAid is a charity set up for couples who wish, instead of receiving wedding gifts, to arrange donations of money, items or indeed their time to others less fortunate than themselves. The main beneficiaries of the charity are schools and orphanages.

 

Share the love inspired by your wedding (or your engagement)... why not ask guests to make donations to WedAid and help change the lives of children in schools or orphanages where the smallest gifts can make the biggest difference.

 

Whatever your contribution, photos of the location(s) who benefit will be posted on this website and on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/WedAid, with thanks to the happy couple who helped make dreams come true.

 

The formal objectives of the charity are: To advance education, relieve poverty and promote good health of children and young people anywhere in the world, in particular but not exclusively by the provision of money, items and services to schools and orphanages.

 

For further information, please don't hesitate to contact us.
