Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s annual Remember Your Star campaign is inviting members of the public to dedicate a star on a special virtual Christmas tree in memory of a loved one.
The online fundraising page shows a beautiful winter landscape with one of the charity’s lifesaving aircrafts flying among Christmas trees. The stars can be dedicated with a poignant message to remember someone special this festive season.. The charity is encouraging people to make a donation with each tribute to help raise vital funds for its pre-hospital emergency service, ensuring that Midlands Air Ambulance Charity can reach and treat those in critical need over the festive season.
Those who make a donation to the Remember Your Star campaign will receive a seeded star card decoration, to put on their Christmas tree over the festive season and then planted in the new year as a further tribute to loved ones.
Emma Wood, head of fundraising and engagement at Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, said: “Feeling the loss of a loved one can be particularly difficult at this time of year, which is why we have set up an online tribute page to help you honour the lives of those who are sadly no longer with us.”
“Our Remember Your Star tribute offers a moment to celebrate the lives of loved ones over the Christmas period where the tributes will help to fund lifesaving missions in the local area, for which we are truly grateful. The flowers from our seeded card decorations can be planted in the new year for wildflowers to bloom as an additional tribute to your loved one.”
Remember Your Star is part of the charity’s wider ‘In Memory Of’ campaign, where people can leave a lasting tribute of their loved one. Last year, more than 10,000 supporters made a donation in memory of a loved one. This helped to fund 319 lifesaving missions carried out by the charity’s advanced critical care paramedics and pre-hospital emergency doctors.
People can make a donation and leave a tribute on the Remember Your Star page from now until the end of January. Donors can dedicate as many stars as they wish to let their loved ones shine bright.
