Why giving cryptocurrency can help seriously ill children to lead a more marvellous life

Founded in 1991, Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity helps and empowers seriously ill children and young people to lead a more marvellous life. One way we do this is through establishing Roald Dahl Specialist Nurses in partnership with the NHS. These nurses provide holistic family-centred care and become a vital lifeline for seriously ill children and young people as well as their families, improving the lives of some of the most disadvantaged people in greatest need.

Currently, 82 Roald Dahl Nurses support over 24,000 seriously ill children and young people across the UK. The children and young people looked after by these nurses are all living with complex lifelong conditions that are underfunded, under-resourced and under-recognised. These conditions include progressive disease without curative treatment options, as well as irreversible but non-progressive conditions causing severe disability.

Roald Dahl Nurses are highly trained, senior, compassionate professionals who are ‘more than a nurse’ and ‘make things happen’. The recently published ‘Marvellous Nurses’ Report, provides highlights from an independent evaluation recently undertaken by the Sheffield Hallam University, clearly evidences the impact and contribution of our nurses. The findings of this research support the future establishment of more Roald Dahl Specialist Nurses across the UK.

In partnership with the Royal College of Nursing, and applying the principles of economic assessment, we have developed some case studies that illustrate the financial value of our Roald Dahl Nurses. For example, Kirsten Johnson – Roald Dahl Sapphire Epilepsy Specialist Nurse at Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Trust – demonstrated that her telephone and advice line service had saved the NHS £84,778 in just one year.

Are cryptocurrency donations anonymous?

You can donate cryptocurrency anonymously. However, we have specifically chosen to work with The Giving Block to manage and facilitate donations of those donors who want to share their details with our charity.

Please note that our charity can only accept anonymous donations made in cryptocurrencies up to a value of £10,000.

In addition, we will notify the charity Commission should an individual anonymous donation exceed a certain amount.

Note that our charity is not able to give refunds if you changed your mind, sent the wrong cryptocurrency or made the wrong decision.

All cryptocurrency donations made via The Giving Block are final and non-refundable. The Giving Block does not, has not, and will never offer any form of cryptocurrency airdrop, goods or services in return for a donation.


Why is your charity accepting cryptocurrency donations?

A growing number of charities are beginning to accept donations in the form of cryptocurrency.

There are currently about 220,000,000 users globally. The number of cryptocurrency users has increased exponentially from 2017 to 2021. Currently, there is about $300,000,000 donated in the form of cryptocurrency each year. As the crypto market has grown, so too have cryptocurrency donations.

We believe that accepting cryptocurrency will result in donations we may not otherwise receive, as well as connecting us with new supporters.
