We don’t know where or when the next disaster will strike, but we do know that lives could depend on us when it does. The most vulnerable families and communities need help to arrive as quickly as possible.
Regular gifts give us the confidence to prepare for the future so we are always ready to respond. A gift of £5 a month – that’s just 16p a day - will help to ensure vital aid reaches disaster zones in days, not weeks.
How your regular gift will help
£5 a month could ensure we’re always ready to provide families in need with shelter and vital aid.
We never know when disasters will strike, how large they will be or how many will happen at the same time, but your gifts could help ensure we always have enough lifesaving aid in stock to help vulnerable families at a moment’s notice.
£10 a month could provide more volunteers with the skills and knowledge to deliver aid directly to families in need.
ShelterBox Response Team volunteers undergo intensive training to prepare them for the challenges they will face in disaster zones. With your help we can continue providing them with the skills and knowledge to deliver aid directly to families in need.
£25 a month could provide more families with emergency shelter within hours of disaster striking.
We can only reach families quickly by pre-positioning aid in countries prone to disasters so families receive emergency shelter in a matter of days, not weeks.
£50 a month could ensure more families receive the very best aid solution for their situation.
Every disaster is different and the type of aid families need to survive is different too. With your help we can continue developing practical solutions, like the specially designed thermal tent layer, to help families survive the aftermath of disaster.
The benefits of regular gifts
Giving in this way is more cost-effective as it keeps our administrative costs to a minimum, meaning even more of your gift goes directly on our work.
You’ll find it is easier too - a small regular amount will automatically leave your bank account so you’ll be helping without even having to think about it. And if your circumstances change, you can change or stop your gifts at any time, just let us know.
Sue from Helston, Cornwall, has been a committed ShelterBox supporter for more than six years. In 2011 she started making a regular gift of £20 a month:
‘Giving to ShelterBox on a regular basis makes it so much easier for me - I don't have to look around for a place to donate - and I’m sure I would forget otherwise. This way I know that the money I am able to give will allow ShelterBox to plan ahead and be proactive, not just reactive’.
