Firstly, on behalf of myself and Wedge, I’d like to thank everyone who donated money to FirstSigns during January. It’s heart-warming to see so many of you caring about our continued work and growth. Donations came in not only from our dear members, but also from friends and acquaintances of Wedge, who chose to show their support for us even though they aren’t involved with FirstSigns. Thank you all very much.
Secondly I would like to thank Wedge, who not only orchestrated the fund-raising drive and worked hard to promote it, but has also DOUBLED each and every donation made. Thank you Wedge, your efforts will certainly help me as I run your organisation this year. You’ve been running FirstSigns (aka LifeSIGNS) for 7 years and I’ve a lot to live up to – the extra funds will help me ensure we continue to thrive :)
It’s a busy time for FirstSigns, especially with SIAD coming up, and the funds you have donated will indeed help us to survive and grow through the months ahead, as we continue to support people in distress and raise awareness about self-injury and self-harm in the UK and beyond.
