Parents and carers share a #midnightselfie in support of WellChild

Posted on the 26th October 2017

Inspired by the #notanurse_but campaign, parents and carers have taken to social media to raise money for WellChild and help highlight the care they provide 24/7 for their children with complex health needs.

Parents caring for a seriously ill child often have to stay awake through the night, monitoring their child to ensure they are safe and well. This can mean several days and nights without any sleep.

Say a friendly hello at midnight by sharing your #midnightselfie with our night owl parents and carers. Whether you’re out and about, at work on a night shift, socialising, or at home in your pyjamas, you can support parents and carers.

Take your #midnightselfie, share it on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook and text ‘WAKE24 £3’ to 70070 to donate. 

Remember to tag your friends to encourage them to do the same!

#midnightselfie is great because it's not just asking for money to support, its transporting them to the reality of our life.
