This time last week, I was nervous. You were about to get an email from me that was a bit unusual: instead of a newsletter, or a once-off donation campaign, last Monday was the start of our 'fairy godparent' campaign, asking 50 ASN supporters to give us Â£10 a month.
I shouldn't have been nervous: ASN supporters have never let us down.
Since last Monday, 61 people have started a monthly donation to ASN (or increased their current one). That's about Â£600 more a month- huge thanks to those amazing supporters! Supporters like Beth*:
"I have just set up a direct debit payment - I am a student, so cannot give much - but wanted to support your cause within my means anyway."
With our average grant around Â£280 - thatâ€™s at least two more clients we can now afford to give a grant to every month. Imagine how many more we could help, if we got to 100 new 'fairy godparents' by the end of August?
"Since signing up to a regular donation, I've been both horrified by the situations that many of those supported by ASN are facing, and inspired by the passion, hard work and genuine care shown by those that run the organisation.
The grants provided by ASN are often relatively small, but their impact is life-changing, so it feels like my donation makes a real difference." - Kathryn
