Asking for donations instead of gifts is an inspirational way to mark a special occasion. Birthdays, weddings and special celebrations are great opportunities to spend time with friends and family, but you could also make a difference at the same time instead of perhaps receiving piles of unwanted gifts! 

Create your own page

Set up an online page, invite friends and family to leave a personal message, and donations will come directly to The Girls’ Network.

Celebrations during lockdown


Making sure that celebrations still happen currently is important so don’t let events go by unmarked, they can still be fun. Whatever it is, there’s nothing to stop a themed fancy dress party, virtual karaoke, or just tea or fizz and cake. And there’s no reason for the dancing to stop either.  Just ask for some donations instead of gifts and make the celebrations all the more meaningful.
