The Foundling Museum & The Big Give Christmas Challenge

The Foundling Museum is excited to announce its next major exhibition will be Quentin Blake's As Large as Life (12 January – 15 April 2012). Bringing one of Britain’s best-loved and most successful illustrators to the Foundling Museum, this exhibition of over sixty works will showcase Blake's recent work created for four hospitals in the UK and France and rarely seen by the general public. The exhibition will be accompanied by talks, workshops and family activities for all ages. However, The Foundling Museum needs your help to realise this exciting project! They are asking you to make an online donation via the Big Give Christmas Challenge. The Big Give will then match the donation, doubling it, for free! The Museum has been successful in the first step of the Challenge in raising £4,000 in pledges from our supporters, Now they need to raise £8,000 from online donations. To ensure funds are matched you have to make your online donation from 10:00 on Monday 5 December. Money to double donations is allocated by the Big Give on a first come, first served basis. So we ask you to be on your marks and all set to go when the Big Give launches on Monday 5 December at 10:00 (the challenge ends on Friday 9 December 2011). Even the smallest contribution can make a difference and we will acknowledge you as a supporter, by name in the Museum during the Blake exhibition. If you would like to help us raise money and make a pledge please fill in a promise card below (the promise card is also available online).
