Big Give 2022

For the seventh year, Rett UK is taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge; the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign where donations can be doubled and even quadrupled! 

Last year, thanks to your amazing support, we raised £25,826 for our project; ‘Rett UK Advocacy, Achieving the Best Outcomes!’.

This year we are hoping to raise £35,000 to further develop our communication and education project, Read, Write and Make Friends? Count us in!.  We are introducing numeracy and literacy training, using our carefully chosen books that encourage engagement, questions and discussion for people with Rett syndrome. We also have dedicated communication partner training and online friendship groups for people of all ages to meet and practise their communication skills in a fun, relaxed way with their peers.

Aims of the project:

  • Parent carers and other care givers feel confident as communication partners. They are able to use a variety of AAC strategies and tools with the person they care for, in different settings with ease.
  • People with Rett syndrome have a more robust way to communicate using a variety of AAC modes in a variety of settings.
  • People with Rett syndrome have improved health and well-being with less frustration and anxiety, higher self-esteem and confidence in communicating.
  • For those in school and college, improved educational attainment especially in literacy and numeracy.
  • People with Rett syndrome of all ages feel less isolated, more able to engage in conversations with friends and advocate for themselves.

We are aiming to raise a total of £8750.00 in pledges to take part in the Christmas Challenge 2022. Would you consider making a pledge (the minimum allowed is £100) to help us reach our target please?

You can do so by completing this simple online form:
by the deadline on Sunday 11th September 2022 at 23:59pm !

Warmest wishes,

Robert Adamek, CEO

What is the Christmas Challenge?
The Christmas Challenge (the UK’s biggest online match-funding campaign) helps UK-registered charities to raise funds for their projects by doubling donations when the campaign goes live at midday (12pm) on Tuesday 29th November 2022.  For example, a £100 online donation made to a participating charity during the Christmas Challenge can be doubled to become £200. With Gift Aid where eligible that becomes £225!

The match funds
The matching pots used to double donations for charities taking part in the Christmas Challenge are made up of a combination of funds. These are funds sourced by the charity (‘Pledges’) and funds sourced by the Big Give (‘Champions’) which are available if we are successfully selected by a Champion. We can still take part in the Christmas Challenge even if we are not selected by a Champion. Pledge funds and Champion funds (if selected by one) combine to form the matching pot and are used to double donations. Donations are matched by our Pledge funds until these are exhausted and then donations are doubled by Champion funds. You can watch a short video explaining how it works at

How would it work for you? 
As a Pledger, you commit a Pledge promise to our matching pot. Your funds will be used to match online donations when the campaign goes live. Research shows that 84% of donors are more likely to give in a match funding campaign and that donations are on average 2.5 times bigger. By committing a Pledge promise you will help us to inspire donors to support Rett UK.

If we are selected for Champion funding, your Pledge promise could be worth up to four times its initial value once it’s added to the Champion funds and online donations. This makes the Christmas Challenge one of the most attractive times to make a contribution to Rett UK.

Additional information 

  • In December, we will let you know the outcome of the Christmas Challenge and ask you to fulfil your Pledge promise. The timeline for fulfilling the pledge (i.e. transferring the funds to us) is between 6th December 2022, 5pm – 14th January 2023 at 12pm.
  • Please note that your pledge is being used to match online donations from the public – this means that fulfilment of your pledge is conditional on us receiving the appropriate online donations during the campaign (#GivingTuesday, 12pm (midday) Tuesday 29th November 2022 – Tuesday 6th December 2022, 5pm).  You will only be required to pay a pro-rata amount of your pledge if we don’t hit our online target – it’s our guarantee to you that we are committed to raising additional donations.
  • Please note that if you pledge to Rett UK you will not be able to make an online donation to us as part of this campaign because your pledge will be used to match these donations.

You can find full details of the Christmas Challenge 2022, and how your pledge will enable us to be part of the UK’s largest Matched Funding Challenge, at

Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have questions about the Christmas Challenge and what being a Pledger could mean to Rett UK.
