The Fuze Charity Auction
There’s four sleeps to go until the Fuze Foundation Fundraiser and we’re SO excited! We have been truly overwhelmed by the generosity from all who have donated items/gifts to go towards our charity auction and we would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you.
Our aim is to raise £10,000, which would enable us to offer over 1000 ceremonies to those in need and although the fundraiser is now SOLD OUT, we thought we would let you know that you can still get involved by bidding on some of the amazing auction items over on our ebay page! From a four-day Scottish island cruise to a three-night stay at a Dubai hotel, there’s something for everyone. Bidding closes on Saturday night, so don’t miss out!
The Fuze Foundation
As I am sure you are aware, funeral affordability is very much in the news. At the start of 2018, The Fuze Foundation piloted a ground-breaking service. The Foundation built a very modest pot of money via fundraising, which has enabled us to offer funeral ceremonies for no set fee, to those in need, in exchange for a donation to our not-for-profit organisation. Our celebrants are still paid for the work they do; the Foundation pays them £100 per ceremony irrespective of the donation received.
By mid-2019 we had conducted over 200 funeral ceremonies, but we have now sadly run out of money. Having been heavily oversubscribed, we recognise that there is clearly a massive demand for this service and we have many examples of heartbreaking stories. That’s why it’s imperative that we begin fundraising again in order to ensure that we can continue to be there for as many families as possible through one of the most stressful times of their life.
