We hope that because of what happened to George other children might have a better chance at a happier life. We want his spirit to live on through our actions and your actions. We want to make this happen in George's name. Please help us to do this.
We are supporting the charities War Child and Kids Company. Please go to the following link - www.justgiving.com/georgeoliver/. You will only see the donation page for War Child as due to logistical issues, we cannot set up two charities on one page, but we have organised for all donations to be split equally between these two very deserving charities.
Alternatively, if you would rather send us a cheque, please make them payable to Mark or Emily Oliver and send it to 22 Everdon Road, London, SW13 9AH and we will make the donation on your behalf.
War Child is a small international charity that helps children that are affected and threatened by war. Further information can be found at www.warchild.org.uk. War Child dedicate their work to finding sustainable solutions for the most vunerable children in areas of conflict - street children, child soldiers and children in prison. Offering them help, support and a chance for a better future.
Kids Company is a London based charity that provides practical, emotional and educational support to children that have been growing up without the support that many people take for granted. Kids Company helps these children to fulfil their potential and face the future. This is a charity that changes things on your own doorstep. See www.kidsco.org.uk for more information.
You can help us support these children. You can make donations in memory of George. You can also help just by doing anything you can to raise the profile of these charities - by talking about them to your friends and family, by buying the music that War Child produces, by volunteering, mentoring or just keeping tabs on Kids Company. George made a difference to our lives and we can make a difference to other children because of what happened to him.
This is a long term commitment for us, so please help us now and help us in the future.
Thank you very much, this means a lot to us.
