Stepping Stone Hospice launches its "100 for 100" campaign
World Hospice & Palliative Care Day, this year being celebrated on Saturday October 13, is a unified day of action to celebrate and support hospice and palliative care around the world.
The theme this year 'Because I Matter', centres on the lived experience of people affected by serious illness, looking at what matters most, including the often-overlooked financial impact of palliative care needs on individuals and households. The theme also contains elements of human rights and justice, asking: If I matter, then why am I not getting the care I need?
This year is the centenary of the late Dame Cicely Saunders, founder of the modern hospice movement. So it is fitting that this year's World Hospice and Palliative Care Day theme draws its wording from her iconic quote: 'You matter because you are you and you matter until the end of your life'.
For purposes of not only drawing attention to the services a hospice offers, and the financial implications around the providing of these services, but to also celebrate the centenary of Dame Cicely Saunders, Stepping Stone Hospice is proud to announce it's 100 for 100 campaign.
The campaign will run through to 31 December 2018 and aims to raise much needed funds as statistics show that the need for hospice services has increased dramatically over the past few years. Through this campaign, you can donate R100 to Stepping Stone Hospice and help make a difference in the lives of those facing the impact of life-limiting illnesses.
The donation can be made via EFT into our banking account. Baking details:
