Barnardos. (2023). A Happy Childhood… Pass it On. https://knowledge.barnardos.ie/handle/20.500.13085/1249
Oftentimes when you haven't had the most idyllic childhood yourself, it gives you motivation to make sure that other children don't face the same challenges as you have. Or maybe you’re on the other end of the spectrum, and really enjoyed your childhood. So much so, that you want to make sure all children have the same opportunities you had. By pledging to leave a gift in your Will to Barnardos, you are affording that opportunity to future generations of children. The chance of a happy childhood. Other caring supporters like you have already chosen to support us in this special way. A gift in your Will is a wonderful way of passing on the best parts of you, your kindness, your compassion, and your commitment to creating a better world, for children in the future. You might think, ‘I wouldn’t have the money to leave a big gift’. But the truth is many of the Gifts in Wills we get from our supporters are modest. Every gift matters. Every single one has the power to change a child’s life for the better. A gift in your Will also speaks to the kind of person you are, and the values that have guided and shaped you. Your love for children, your generosity of spirit. These things can live on too. These are the ways you can be remembered. These are the things you can pass on. Oftentimes when you haven’t had the most idyllic childhood yourself, it gives you motivation to make sure that other children don’t face.
