BIRMINGHAM, England, September 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Harry Moseley was an incredible boy who captured the heart of the nation with his campaigning to raise funds for brain cancer research, fundraising up and down the country with his famous bracelets. Despite suffering from a brain tumour, he was inspired to act following the death of his close friend and fellow patient Robert Harley, raising over £650,000 through his campaigning. Harry sadly died on October 11th 2011 and his passing was covered by all national media.
Help Harry Help Others
Harry's ultimate dream was to start his own charity. Following his death and the ever increasing levels of public and media support, Harry's family have decided to fulfil his dream and on September 26th launch Help Harry Help Others, a charity designed to help all families suffering from cancer.
Much of the charity will be focussed on continuing Harry's schools' initiative, a scheme he himself created. Fronted by celebrity ambassador Duncan Bannatyne, star of Dragon's Den, the initiative is built around Harry's famous bracelets, allowing schools to:
- Raise money for HelpHarryHelpOthers to fund vital cancer research projects and support services but also for their own school fund
- To inspire kids to 'do good' and empower them to believe in themselves and realise that regardless of their age, wellbeing, lifestyle they can make a huge difference if they are passionate enough about something.
- To teach kids basic business skills without them even realising. Harry's Enterprise covers profit, loss, finance, marketing, sales, IT, team work, confidence building and public speaking.
As Harry's mum and charity chairman Georgie Moseley says:
"So much of what Harry was about was getting his class mates from up and down the country to do what they could to help others. He inspired them but also gave them the tools to create something they could use to raise money and do something to help those they cared about".
Help Harry Help Others CEO, and former Coronation Street star, Adam Rickitt adds:
"As much as we want people to support us in our mission we also want to give back to the community, by delivering tools to classrooms to not only develop vital skills but help raise money for the schools themselves."
