Story

Make your day really count by skipping your daily coffee and donating the money instead to Duchenne UK. Working from home? Why not donate the cost of your usual commute!

Skip the gifts and donate to Duchenne UK on behalf of someone special this Valentine's day. You could even give a day's salary and ask your employer for match funding.

Every day counts for people living with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a severe and progressive muscle-wasting disease diagnosed in childhood. Your donation will go towards funding research to help those affected live longer, more independent lives and supporting the families whose everyday lives are impacted by this complex condition.

How to get involved

Not everyone can (or wants to!) run a marathon or climb a mountain, but donating a day is something we can all do. Here are some ideas of what you could swap for a donation:

- Swap your daily coffee for £3 a day to Duchenne UK

- Walk, cycle or run to work (or work from home if you can!) and give the cost of your commute

- Stop shopping this month and donate the cost of a new outfit

- Stay in and cook instead of buying dinner and give the cost of your takeaway or restaurant bill

- Donate on behalf of your Valentine on 14th February instead of giving chocolates, cards and flowers

What else could you go without this February to help bring an End to Duchenne?

Share and spread the love

Once you've made your donation, download our Donate a Day social media posts here. Tag two friends and challenge them to donate their day's too.

Together, we will End Duchenne.
