“In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes”
Unfortunately, Benjamin Franklin was spot on when he penned a letter to Jean-Baptiste Leroy back in 1789, which included this famed line about death and taxes. While it’s only natural to want to bury our heads in the sand when it comes to considering the death of either ourselves or a loved one, death is inevitable and it’s something we’re all going to have to face at some point.
When the inevitable happens, we know first hand how healing and uplifting a meaningful funeral service can be for bereaved family and friends; however, what happens if this isn’t possible, not through choice, but because of poverty? That’s why in 2012, Fuze Ceremonies set up the Fuze Foundation with the aim of tackling funeral poverty by conducting meaningful ceremonies for no set fee.
So, what is the Fuze Foundation?
The Fuze Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation with the primary purpose of assisting families who are unable to afford a Funeral Celebrant. Fuze are doing something very practical – supporting struggling and bereaved families by providing a Funeral Celebrant in exchange for a no-fixed-fee donation. Our ultimate aim is to raise enough money to be able to cover the cost of an entire funeral for those who are most in need. We also provide advice on low cost alternative funerals and memorial ceremonies.
Help us help others!
In order to continue providing this service and to achieve our ultimate aim, we need to raise much needed funds and there’s no better way to raise money than by throwing a glamorous Charity Summer Ball and guess what? YOU’RE ALL INVITED! If you’re feeling charitable and you like a good party, the Fuze Summer Ball will be right up your street! Enjoy welcome drinks, delicious food, electric entertainment and be in with a chance of winning some AMAZING prizes all for just £50.
So what are you waiting for? If you’re free on Saturday 31st August at 7pm and can get yourself to the Merchants Hall in Glasgow, get in touch to book your ticket.
