Why your gift is important

Since 1919 we've been saving children's lives around the world - making sure they are healthy and well-fed, protected from harm and helping them get an education.

You can help us be there when children need us most

So much of the vital work we've done over the last century has only been possible because of the kindness and generosity of all those who leave us a gift in their will. 

Your generosity will change children’s lives – whether that’s by vaccinating a baby against pneumonia, delivering life-saving supplies in an emergency, or helping a child refugee get back into school. And its effects will be felt by everyone around them.

By writing a child’s future into your will, you can help unlock their potential. That’s a gift that will support them, their family and their community for years to come.

Each year, around 13p of every £1 we receive from supporters comes from gifts in wills.

By leaving a gift in your will to Save the Children, you’ll help make sure children around the world survive and thrive.

Check out our free will-writing guide, that you can download online or request in the post.

Help children like Estas

'I know the Cha-Cha-Cha, Tango, Samba, Slow Waltz, Vienna Waltz, Drive and Quick Step – seven dances. I'm full of energy when I dance!'

Perfecting your Viennese Waltz is never easy - especially when your dance floor is a playground, in a country far away from your home. But ten-year-old Estas*, from Ukraine, is determined to make it as a professional ballroom dancer like his older brother.

It's a reminder of how life used to be, before Estas was forced to flee with his sisters when Russia invaded. They eventually settled in a school in Romania, where classrooms were converted into dorms.

Thanks to the support of amazing people like you, we’ve helped them to buy food and medicines, as well as providing counselling for their trauma.

And with a renewed hope for the future, we can't wait to see Estas follow his dreams!
