I made a donation, I lived in the next village to where Nirob lives, so this appeal really touched my heart. I saw the picture of Nirob on the envelope, I fell in love with him. House to house income was up 50% [owing to] higher profile and having a specific theme with a pamphlet to give out.

Even if it’s something you’d never consider doing, that’s still incredibly useful for us to know and will help us communicate with our supporters about gifts in wills in the most appropriate way. “

  17. 17. Optimising conversion “Leave a life full of possibility A few years ago you kindly completed a survey for us about leaving a gift in your will to Save the Children. We also sent you a guide to leaving a gift to us in your will, which I hope helped to give you some of the answers you were looking for. Creating a will is one of the most important things anyone can do – it’s the legacy that you leave to the world. So I’m writing today to make sure that whenever you’re ready to take the next step, you have all the information you need to help you update your will.”
