Futures For Kids, the charity backed by the futures and options industry, has launched an appeal for supporters to donate their lunch money to the charity ahead of its annual fund-raising day on May 15.
FFK said commuters spend on average £10.59 each day on lunch and drinks, and this sum “would be a very meaningful donation to the children FFK helps”.
The charity said £5 will provide a notebook and pen for 20 children in Malawi, which would allow them to go to school, or pay for a birth certificate for orphaned and vulnerable children. FFK said £10 could provide a disabled child a wheelchair.
The charity has asked that people donate their lunch money via the Futures For Kids Just Giving page.
FFK Day takes place this year on May 15 and the charity has asked brokers, traders, exchanges, clearing houses and just about everyone else to get involved by throwing fund-raising events, which could be almost anything from a cake sale or dress down day to putting your boss in some stocks.
Participants can also take part in the annual FFK Walk to Work which has in its first three years raised over £180,000 for worthwhile charities.
