The Fragrance Shop is supporting Rays of Sunshine's What I Would Give fundraiser

The Fragrance Shop is honoured to be supporting Rays of Sunshine’s What I Would Give campaign, a 36-hour fundraiser to help the children’s charity continue granting magical wishes to seriously ill children.

We have worked with Rays of Sunshine for the past decade to support their mission to brighten the lives of seriously ill young people across the UK aged three to 18. To date, The Fragrance Shop has raised £1.5 million through our Spray a Little Happiness Foundation, which has helped the selfless team at Rays of Sunshine to fund hundreds of magical moments for seriously ill children.

From meeting their idols, like One Direction’s Niall Horan, to being James Bond for the day, Rays of Sunshine somehow make the impossible possible. In 2018, we helped surprise the Rays of Sunshine’s Children’s Choir with a visit from Olly Murs at The Fragrance Shop in London’s Westfield, and we want nothing more than to keep making their dreams come true.

What Would I Give is an urgent 36-hour fundraising appeal taking place from 10am today (Sunday 18th April) until 10pm on Monday 19th April. The aim is to raise vital funds that will enable Rays of Sunshine to continue sparkling joy in children’s lives, and to keep providing ongoing support in hospitals and within the Rays of Sunshine community.

When asked what we would give to help, well it’s easy isn’t it? We would give anything to make more seriously ill children’s wishes come true. To support the 36-hour campaign, The Fragrance Shop has donated £25,000 to Rays of Sunshine and we want to raise even more. This is why we are asking YOU to help raise as much money as possible to make seriously ill children’s wishes come true!

How can I donate to Rays of Sunshine?

Well, there are two very simple ways to donate that will make a huge, invaluable difference to Rays of Sunshine and the many children and families they support!

As always, The Fragrance Shop will donate 5p from every transaction to our Spray a Little Happiness Foundation. In-store, our customers will be given the option to donate 25p to Pennies on their transaction, and all donations will be doubled during the 36 hours and sent to Rays of Sunshine!

If you can’t make it to a store today or tomorrow, don’t worry! You can donate directly to the crowdfunding page HERE. Again, every donation will be doubled so any contribution is going to make a HUGE difference! Please donate whatever you possibly can!

Help us spread the word on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using the campaign hashtag #WhatIWouldGive so we can uplift Rays of Sunshine and fundraise as much as we possibly can together.

The charity’s work creates precious memories for the children and their families, offering an escape from the heaviness of their illnesses. We would give everything to make more seriously ill children’s wishes come true, now let’s do this!
