Your support and sponsorship will make a winter wonderland dream come true!
Why we need donations
To empower and enrich the lives of children and adults affected in some way by a life-changing or life-limiting condition. We do this by promoting access to the benefits of winter sports and wellbeing. As a result we enable our beneficiaries to benefit from improved mental and physical health, respite, social inclusion, hope, life-skills and lasting and precious memories.
As an advocate for the health benefits of mountain winter activities, it is important we have the best resources in place so that we can meet the increase in demand for our services and continue to be at the forefront of accessible mountain experiences. We remain the responsible advisor and facilitator of choice for a reason.
Many of those we have helped were on an once-in-a-lifetime trip but everyone is left with extraordinary memories and the knowledge that their trip to the mountains helped towards making the most of what time was left or give strength to meet the future.
Ski 2 Freedom is a small charity which has built up a reputation for empathy, integrity and trust and has become recognised as a dependable portal on the life-empowering benefits of adaptive skiing, snowboarding and other winter mountain experiences.
How our donations are used
All our donations are used exclusively in helping others to feel a sense of empowerment and provide enlightenment and hope. To meet people’s aspirations and dreams we:
• Help guide people towards the most appropriate adaptive winter sport or well-being experience which provides them with the most comprehensive information, support and advice, meeting their specific needs and requirements.
• Provide a high ranking website which is accessible for everyone, social media platforms and promote the charity via many diverse routes such as publicity, networking, events, being with beneficiaries whilst on their experiences.
• Endeavour to make small individual grants towards the provision of specialist ski instruction or other winter sport assistance such as lessons or guided sit-ski trips
• Help with the provision of adaptive ski and winter sport equipment – there is currently insufficient material to meet demand.
Ski 2 Freedom was the idea of a mother, whose daughter was born with a severe neurological disorder, Rett Syndrome and dreamt of sharing personal experiences of how some respite time spent in the mountains during the winter, could help give renewed strength in facing daily challenges. Whilst on these short trips, the idea of how to promote adaptive and assisted skiing and other snow sports, which can benefit so many other people with life-changing, life-limiting or other health-related conditions began to take shape.
Demand for Ski 2 Freedom’s services is now greater than ever and your business could play a strategic and important part in helping to enable children, families and individuals to have a once-in-a-life time experience!
Benefits to your business include:
We believe that the greatest return for your donation, is the knowledge that you will have been responsible for the smiles, laughter, renewed health and well-being, empowerment, and ultimately the lasting memories for a child, young person or adult. Maybe it will be someone you know, be it family, friend or employee, who has the chance to enjoy these life-changing benefits of being in a winter mountain wonderland!
Ski 2 Freedom happily engages with, and will acknowledge, the support of people who share an empathy for helping others and who actively have a passion for health and well-being.
We offer the opportunity to support us as an individual and as a business wishing to honour corporate responsibility. Ski 2 Freedom encourages sponsors and donors to become actively engaged with our work, and we encourage the opportunity for you to see how your donation is helping on the mountain itself.
Ski 2 Freedom is also very aware that many businesses will themselves have employees who, either themselves or a family member, are affected by a life-changing condition and could directly benefit from our Mission. We therefore do like to offer such help as we believe a donor becomes a partner or even a member of our ‘Family’ and therefore we want to help and share with you as well.
