Your story can live on, creating a new beginning for seriously ill children
When you've taken care of your family and friends, will you consider creating a happy ending to your story and a new beginning for seriously ill children?
Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity was founded in memory of Roald Dahl, whose passion for mischief and inventiveness inspires our mission to help children with rare illness to enjoy their childhood every day.
As a great storyteller, Roald Dahl was masterful at creating spectacular endings for some of his liveliest and most revolting characters, like George shrinking his grandmother with his marvellous medicine, or Mr and Mrs Twit seeing out their days with their heads glued to the carpet. The conclusions of his stories, though, were often full of hope, optimism and a better future for the child heroes.
When you ponder how you would like to write the end of your own story, wouldn’t it be nice to think that, when you have taken care of your family and friends, you could leave something else behind to help future generations of children facing tough times?
Your final chapter could mark a new beginning for a seriously ill child by providing the specialist nurse that will care for them through their diagnosis and treatment; by helping them to walk and talk again after a stroke; or by teaching parents new ways to play and interact with them after a brain injury. A gift in your Will could help to bring hope for the future for children with very serious conditions.
