You order. We make a donation to Eddie’s Foundation.
Eddie’s Foundation is our new charity dedicated to helping and improving the welfare and well-being of children throughout the world. The Foundation is named after our son Eddie who, last year, suffered and now has thankfully recovered from, a rare condition called Kawazaki disease.
The disease is largely seen in children under five years of age and results in the inflammation of the blood vessels. It affects many organ systems, including the blood vessels, skin, mucous membranes and lymph nodes. It can however, effect the heart where it can cause fatal coronary artery aneurysms in untreated children. ( related information please refer to www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov)
What we want to achieve
Having experienced the trauma of our son contracting this disease, we decided that we’d like to ‘put something back’ and start to raise money for a charitable children’s cause. Rather than donate to an existing charity, we decided to set up our own charity to help raise money to improve the lives of as many children as we can who are suffering from any form of serious ailment or disease.
The main objectives of our Charity include promoting and supporting medical research anywhere in the world to increase the treatment available to children suffering from life changing or life threatening illnesses. In particular with the money raised through Eddie’s Charity we look to support research, training, and awareness of global health issues with the aim of improving human (especially children's) health.
Our target within two years
Our current goal is to raise £8000 in two years to support Kawazaki research. It may seem a great feat, but with your help we know that we can achieve this target and truly make a difference.
How you can help
For every transaction made on this FYFO website, we will donate 5p on your behalf to Eddie’s Foundation. In the near future, we are looking to increase this figure, to raise even more money to help support needy children. (From little acorns as they say!)
You can monitor the progress of the fund raising via our blogs and newsletter, where we will be regularly updating you on all major developments and milestones reached in our attempt to raise £8000 for a fantastic cause.
