BECOME AN AMBASSADOR
Would you be willing to use your spare time, your social circle and networks to raise awareness of miscarriage, stillbirth and child death, maximise potential for the charity by working with businesses in your local area or fundraise for 4Louis? If so, read on to learn about our Ambassador Programme and how you can make a difference.
Introduction & History
4Louis was established in 2009. Since then we have been supported very generously by charitable trusts, companies, and individuals– through grants, sponsorship, donations and volunteering. The impact of this has been huge and we are extremely grateful.
We are also aware that there are others, passionate about our cause, who may not be able to contribute financially, but want to volunteer their help in different ways - by raising awareness of miscarriage, stillbirth and child death and of 4Louis’ work on a more personal level. This might take the form of supporting local fundraiser’s, using business contacts or personal connections to secure funds and support from others.
We have an Ambassador Programme to enable individuals to use their skills and create a network of dedicated Ambassadors which will also allow us to bring awareness of our work to a wider audience.
