Karis was a poorly child throughout her ten years but she loved life and just wanted to be with her family and friends. She was a beautiful girl inside and out and even though she was so poorly, she was always worried about others and always wanted to help, even on her toughest days. She rarely complained and just got on with things. Karis saw herself as lucky because she could do certain things that others couldn’t do, she had a fantastic cheeky sense of humour and above all, she was such a brave little girl that touched the lives of so many people.
Karis’ family have now set up a charity in her name to help children who are suffering from brain tumours and their immediate families. From experience, they know just how priceless it is to make memories and just how tough life is both mentally, physically and financially. The charity will offer grants and donations by way of memory making day’s out/trips, gift packages, grants to assist with household bills/every day essentials as well as offering a friendly ear to talk to.
some good fundraising ideas could be:
sky dives | sponsored runs/walks | cycle events | head shave | celebrate karis day (Every 10th December) | charity boxing | donate electronics (Can bring joy and entertainment to suffering children)
bexley foodbank is a charity that helps those who don’t have money to buy food.
we operate with voucher access. the reason we do this is to see why people are in need , signpost them for help and show areas of need to the government yearly to seek change in payments they give.
