New SAIF Associate -Love2Donate:In MemoryJuly 27, 2015 // No Comments
Love2Donate could have been named ‘Ernie’ as it was a wonderful little boy with this name who inspired the founding of the company.
When he was only a couple of months old, Ernie was diagnosed with Bilateral Retinoblastoma (an aggressive form of cancer) that affects the eyes. Ernie endured two heavy courses of chemotherapy, over 100 hospital trips, an operation every 3 weeks and although his vision has been severely affected, he is currently in remission. Throughout his ordeal, the support and comfort provided by medical staff and cancer support groups was amazing and they helped Ernie’s family through some very dark and emotional times. Ernie is now a healthy seven year old that runs around just like any other child of his age.
As family birthdays occurred, Mother’s day, Father’s day etc., it was decided that instead of giving and receiving presents, we would rather donate to help those support groups assist other families going through similar nightmares. Hence, the Love2Donate idea was born – giving the gift of a present which will also help a worthwhile cause. Through the years, Love2Donate has evolved into Love2Donate:In Memory which was created to enable the bereaved and loved ones to remember those in passing.
Working with Funeral Directors, the company create a personal Tribute and Donation Page replicating their website whereby friends and loved ones can donate on line to a charity chosen by the Next of Kin that has meaning and could benefit, in memory of their loved one. Many of their clients are independent funeral directors whom they greatly value and have superb working relations with.
Sue Stevens of Love2Donate:In Memory, commented, “We wanted to ensure that our clients now and in the future are aware that our quality and professionalism has been acknowledged and we are able to proudly display the SAIF logo.”
