Donations in lieu of flowers is an increasingly popular and fitting way to remember a cause a loved one and friend cherished and supported. If you would like to remember Tools with a Mission in this way please make your wishes known to your family, perhaps by attaching a note to your will.
Tools with a Mission has produced some beautiful cards entitled ‘Remembering Someone Special’. They can be discreetly placed on chairs or pews before the service. Friends and relatives can either use them to make a donation on the day or to send them to the funeral director or directly to TWAM at a later date. TWAM will keep a record of all donations and let the family know how much has been donated.
The wording inside the card reads:
The family requests that donations today should benefit the work of Tools with a Mission Tools with a Mission (TWAM) collects and refurbishes tools to send to charities and missions across Africa. Tools are sorted into trade kits such as Mechanics, Carpenters, Builders, Plumbers and given free of charge. Kits are given to trainees graduating from vocational training courses or completing their education. Many simply go to people in need of support to rebuild their lives. TWAM sends out around 20 containers a year containing over 300 tonnes of tools, sewing and knitting machines, computers and school books. Your support will help us to continue our life transforming work of supporting small local charities across Africa who would otherwise have no means to access life changing tools.
Please contact our Ipswich office if you would like us to send you some cards.
