This holiday season, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation (AAF) is reaching out to communities far and wide with a heartwarming initiative - the Christmas Loose Change Appeal. The asthma charity invites businesses and organisations to join hands in making a significant difference by hosting a collection box and our adorable teddy, whose "lungs" are hurting and need your help.

Asthma is a life-threatening long-term condition that affects thousands in Scotland, and this Christmas, the charity is on a mission to bring hope and support to those who need it most. The Christmas Loose Change Appeal is a unique opportunity for businesses and organisations to play a pivotal role in supporting the vital work of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation.

How can you get involved?

Host a Collection Box & Teddy: Contact Asthma and Allergy Foundation if you would like to host a collection box and our adorable teddy bear at your business or organisation. This lovable teddy is a symbol of the silent struggles faced by individuals living with asthma, and your support can make a significant impact.

Every pound counts, and you can make a difference with just the spare change in your pocket.

Donate to the Appeal: Scan the QR code on the teddy's donation box or click our JustGiving link here to contribute towards a cause that transforms lives.

“We believe everyone should have equal chances, but when you live with asthma, you don’t. Asthma is a life-threatening long-term condition, but with the right medication and support, it can be controlled. Unfortunately, not everyone has access to the necessary resources, and that is where the charity steps in. However, we cannot do it alone. Generous donations will go a long way in preventing avoidable asthma deaths and enhancing the quality of life for those living with this condition,” says Vicki Rae, Head of Services at Asthma and Allergy Foundation.

Become a champion for change this Christmas season and make a lasting impact on asthma lives.
