We need help to send you a gift

We’re thinking about Self-Injury Awareness Day of course, as that’s coming up on the 1st of March. We have a couple of major projects to launch, and one of them is a national initiative that we’ve been lucky enough to get involved with.

The thing is, we can’t afford to run it. We need your help if we’re going to reach out to more people. We mean to offer 47 of our visitors a free gift, and we’re really excited to be able to do so. I don’t want to say any more as I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but basically we can’t afford the postage. So even though we have the gift arranged, we don’t have the cash needed to send post to 47 people.

Can you donate £9 to help cover 5 packages? We’ll put your name on the list for a free gift if you can!

By donating £9 you’re giving a gift to four or five people. It’s not about FirstSigns, it’s about getting a lovely package into the hands of 47 people, and that’s what your £9 will do.

Please send us £9 (or more) via PayPal – you can just log into your PayPal account and send us a donation directly to

It’s as simple as that; or you can visit our donation page for full details and an ‘easy to press’ button :)

If you donate via PayPal you’ll automatically be added to our gift list, so we’ll be sure to thank you in March with a lovely present through your door.

    We really need to thank you for your immediate response. It’s been so wonderful of you, to donate £9 so we can send a gift to other people. Thank you, you’re being a great help. We hope a few more people will make a donation to help us get this gift giving project complete.
