Dear each and every single one of you who has donated to us in the last four years,
I’m writing this blog, hoping that you will read it, and do me a small favour – answer a tax question. It sounds boring but it could make all the difference to the people we help. And it won’t cost you a penny.
Are you a tax payer? If so, every pound that you have given to Peace Direct, could be worth 25p more. Helping us reach 25% more people who are living in conflict and need our help. Just by ticking a box.
What does this look like? Well, if Henri had 25% more for just one year, he would be able to help 241 more ex-combatants to escape the militia and build a brighter future in their local communities. If our peace courts in DR Congo had 25% more funding they could provide justice to 12,500 more people. All this at just the tick of a box!
Through your support for Peace Direct you are helping rescue child soldiers, bringing justice to people who have none and giving young people the opportunity to choose peace over extremism. If you are a UK tax payer we can make your gift go even further by reclaiming, from the government, the tax you have already paid on your donations – 25p for every pound you have donated. Through the government’s scheme we can reclaim this tax on all the donations that you have made in the last four years. If you have been donating £10 each month over the last four years that would mean we can reclaim £120.
It really doesn’t cost you a penny. All you need to do is fill in the form below, confirming that you are a UK tax payer and that you have paid enough income or capital gains tax to cover the amount we will reclaim. Every little bit helps. It’s really simple you just need to tick the box, enter your details and click submit.
I’d also like to thank you for your continuing support. We couldn’t help the people we help without you.
Let’s get your money off the taxman and make your gift go further in building peace.
