Our Text to Donate Number has changed
From the 31st March 2019 we will be using a new text to donate number. JustTextGiving, in partnership with Vodafone, was the ground-breaking service of its time when it was launched in 2011, however JustGiving and Vodafone have jointly made the decision to bid farewell to JustTextGiving.
We will now use a new service from Donr who provide mobile donation technology to UK charities. Our old text to donate numbers will cease to exist from the 31st March and please remember that this change will also affect any text to donate codes associated to supporters individual justgiving.com fundraising pages.
To make a donation, text ‘TINY 5’ to 70085 to donate £5. This costs £5 plus a std rate msg. Alternatively, you can opt to give any whole amount up to £20.
Donations made via text are vitally important for Tiny Tickers. Your money helps us to support babies with CHD, their families and the health professionals who look after them. We’ve got a proud track record of helping improve the detection, care and treatment of babies with congenital heart defects. Founded in 1999 by world-renowned fetal cardiologist Dr Helena Gardiner, she realised many of the babies she was caring for could have been helped earlier.
One in every 125 babies is born with a heart problem but fewer than half of those are spotted during pregnancy and, in some parts of the UK, detection rates are as low as 1 in 4. That means over 1,000 newborns leave hospitals in the UK every year with no one realising they have a life-threatening heart condition. Babies with undetected heart defects will often fall into the early stages of heart failure – significantly impacting their long-term quality of life. Some will die before anyone realises they have a poorly heart, or before getting the surgery that would save them.
We are a very small charity with big ambitions and continue to juggle minimal resources to make the biggest possible impact. Text giving enables us to deliver our vital life-saving work, as well as allowing us to offer parents and families the basic comfort of just knowing that we are there for them, during very difficult and overwhelming times.
