Terrence Higgins Trust

THT was my charity of the day one day last week. Since then, they've been brilliant. They've written a heartfelt letter (with red ribbon) to say thank you - so simple, but quite rare to get something so meaningful and clear on where the money is going:

"We can't thank you enough for deciding to join us in the fight against HIV in the UK, and the prejudice that surrounds it. We're only a small team here at THT and your support is crucial and so much appreciated. Your support for our work means we can be here to jelp everybody affected by HIV in the most practical ways possible, by providing services such as our helpline, THT direct, counselling sessions and the Hardship Fund that helps those in desperate financial need.

I cannot emphasise enough how much you are genuinely helping to turn people's lives around by helping to fund services like these. The lives of people who are isolated, scared and often the victims of outrageous discrimination because of their HIV status. Thank you so much......."

Then, when I asked them to contact me by email to save on postage, paper and so on, they sent me a really nice email.

However, as some of our mailings can be prepared up to six weeks in advance, it is possible that you may receive a postal appeal from us in this time. I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support of THT - it really does make a difference. Thank you!

Other charities take note!!
