Wipe Your Tears are committed to supporting children who suffer from a serious or terminal illness. We also offer support to children who are victims of domestic violence situations and reside in a safehouse with mum or dad who have been abused. Support is also available to families in the community who are experiencing hardship and deprivation through no fault of their own.
We provide children with a serious or life limiting illness a last wish giving them a moment of happiness whether it be to meet a famous idol, go on a last holiday (Project Charlie) or just to have their tears turned into smiles, if only for a short while. We also fund medical equipment for home use which is unavailable through the NHS. Since 2016 we have funded 10 pieces of equipment for home use costing £46,000.
For children who are residing in a safe house support comes in the form of Project Cuddle Bags, these bags are life saving upon arrival with little or no belongings of their own.
Food and clothes shopping grants in the forms of items are provided to families to make their lives that little bit easier when life has been hard, anyone can fall on difficult times, we are here to help and listen.
Wipe Your Tears also have an annual Christmas toy appeal and an Easter egg appeal, these appeals are supported generously each year and allows the team to provide children with gifts who without our support would not have a gift to open on Christmas morning or an Easter egg on Easter Sunday.
We support between 2,000 and 3,000 children and their families each year.

Manchester as you know is popular with history, owning iconic buildings / venues, some more popular than others.
Wipe Your Tears Children’s Charity are challenging a power individual to locate and visit 40 of these which we have chosen for them.
There is a twist, our mascot Charlie who is a 5ft cuddly monkey who just loves to travel with the team to events, (this event is no different), will accompany the power individual wearing his Wipe Your Tears t-shirt, he will also have with him, one of our prototype Cuddle Bags.
Each venue reached will require a photograph which should include:
*The challenger is encouraged to spread the word about the challenge to their networks, fundraise and encourage people to donate, however, I Love MCR will be promoting the initiative and helping to gather donations.
