Welcome to Pancakes for Kids. Pancakes for Kids is a student-driven initiative seeking to replicate the success of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in order to not only raise awareness of the financial needs of the larget children's hospital in the UK, but to raise money to support the children who need world-class healthcare to be sustained; provided by none other than Great Ormond Street Hospital.
In order to tackle this issue and raise the necessary funds to sustain such healthcare, as well as putting a smile; or in this case, a bit of whipped cream in someone's face, the Pancakes for Kids challenge has been launched.
The Challenge is simple:
Get your phone, take a video of yourself or of a friend; and slap a pancake/cake in their face or your own. When the damage has been done, share it on your social medias whilst nominating 3 friends to share your fate, and donate just £3 to our crowdfunding page whilst doing so. If enough people take part; we can make a real difference.Every penny raised from this platform will be donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital's Children's Charity (GOSHCC).
GOSHCC need to raise £85 million this year to help rebuild and refurbish Great Ormond Street Hospital, buy vital equipment and fund research to pioneer new treatments and cures for childhood illness. With over 250,000 patients in 2015, they need our funding now. Every donation really does make a difference- just one £25 sponsorship could pay for five special masks to help newborn babies breath. Take a look at GOSHCC's website or see below for just a few examples of what a difference your generosity can make:
· £83 could support a member of the play team for a day to help create a happy and fun environment for the patients while spending time in the hospital.
· £500 - could buy a respiration monitor to track a child’s breathing.
· £2300 could pay for a pain relief syringe pump for Cardiac Intensive Care Unit.
· £8,637 could pay to fit out a neurosciences bedroom with furniture and equipment.
Our mission is to enhance Great Ormond Street Hospital’s ability to transform the health and wellbeing of children and young people, giving them the best chance to fulfil their potential.
