Amazing result for Lumos's first-ever crowd-funder


Amazing result for Lumos's first-ever crowd-funder

In November and December we ran our first-ever crowd funder, and supporters from around the world responded with gusto!

The Home for the Holidays Appeal featured some of our amazing Youth Advocates, beneficiaries and staff, who recorded videos and shared their experience of care reform with Lumos.

You may remember Igor and his energetic young sons in Ukraine, for example, or Marcela in Colombia who was so happy to be back home with her family for the holiday season and beyond.

The stories of hope and transformation were coupled with a generous offer of match funding from one of our key supporters, which really helped the campaign to soar!

In total, including match funding and Gift Aid, the campaign raised a fantastic £154,075! Thank you so much!

The crowd funder went live online on 10 th December, and it was brilliant to see the donations and messages of support all in one place. 

“Safety and happiness for children is peace on earth.”
A message from one generous supporter

Marcela, Vasile, Pavel and Olesea bravely shared their stories with us for our Home For The Holidays Appeal

We are so grateful to everyone who got involved to make the campaign such a big success – from our Advocates and Champions, to everyone who shared the campaign online, our match funder and of course everyone who donated.

We’re confident that the campaign will help our fundraising and future campaigns go from strength to strength, so we can reach more vulnerable children, families and communities around the world. THANK YOU!

The campaign is now closed but you can still donate to benefit more families like Igor’s and Marcela’s.
