We should do more to help the organisation ‘Children in Need’ which helps a wide variety of underprivileged children and young people.
Thank you for showing an interest in my petition, my name is Tori and I am trying to not just raise awareness of ‘Children in Need’ but also to raise awareness of what wonderful things they do! I hope you are able to take away a new mind set of what ‘Children in Need’ do and stand for!
I would like to tell you straight away about one of the many things that ‘Children in Need’ have done, showing you why you should care about helping! Look at the little boy in the picture, this is Harrison, he is just 8 years old. He needed an emergency operation to remove part of his skull because he had water on his brain, at first, he couldn't walk without bumping into things but a year later, thanks to the help of ‘Children in Need’ and BIBIC in Somerset, he is doing brilliantly. At BIBIC Harrison receives treatment from the physiotherapist that ‘Children in Need’ funds to help Harrison with his coordination skills. They have helped Harrison learn to do things most children take for granted, such as balance and coordination. Harrison needs to wear a helmet at school to stop him banging his head and doing damage but he can now go swimming, ride a tricycle and is having lots of fun with his friends. Every £15 that ‘Children in Need’ raise could help pay for an hour of specialist nursing for a severely disabled child, don’t you think that such a little amount of money is worth it to put a smile on his face? If you want to see more stories like Harrison’s and how ‘Children in Need’ helped, follow this web link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/pudsey/grants/who-you-help/index.shtml.
Thank you for reading about Harrison and maybe visiting the website above to learn about lots of other children they have helped; the stories are truly inspirational. Please sign my petition if you, like me, believe that more should be done to help ‘Children in Need’. There are countless numbers of children in the UK which need this organisation help and by signing this petition you are helping lots of suffering children. I always say; don’t discard dreams, let them inspire you. Let these children’s’ hopes and dreams inspire your actions today.
