Borka and The Big Give Christmas Challenge

In December 2013, ETO has been chosen to participate in The Big Give Christmas Challenge. This will help us to raise much-needed funding for our new children’s opera, Borka. Throughout the challenge, if you make a donation to support Borka through the Challenge website, your gift will be doubled by The Big Give.

ETO can have up to £10,000 matched, meaning we could raise up to £20,000 to help this exciting project take flight.

Here’s how it works:

At 10am on Thursday 5th December, the Challenge will open. All donations made through our page on The Big Give website will be matched, on a first-come, first-served basis. This is important, as there is a limit to the amount of funding available each day.

When the daily limit is reached, the Challenge will be paused.

At 10am on Friday 6th December and Saturday 7th December, the Challenge will re-open with more funding available. Again, donations will be matched on a first-come, first-served basis until the limit for that day is reached.

For our Challenge to be successful we need generous people like you to go to the website as close to 10am on any of the three days to make a donation to support Borka. Whether you are able to give £5 or £5,000, every pound we receive will go towards introducing thousands of young people nationwide to the power of live opera.

How to Get Involved

We hope you will consider supporting Borka in The Big Give Christmas Challenge, and make the most of the opportunity to have your donation doubled.

There are a number of things you can do today ahead of participating in The Big Give Christmas Challenge:

  1. Sign up to our Big Give Reminder Service to receive a reminder when the Challenge opens
  2. Make a note of the dates in your diary or on your calendar. If you are using an electronic calendar, why not set a reminder or alarm for 9.45am to give yourself enough time to turn your computer on, make a cup of tea and be ready for when the Challenge opens?
  3. Go to our Project Page and save it as a Favourite on your computer, so that you can easily find the correct page on the day
