Jeremy donates St. Christopher’s pendant to auction

Jeremy Irons has kindly donated a gold St. Christopher’s Pendant for a ‘Tokens of Love’ auction.

Jeremy and several other celebrities have donated ‘tokens’ to be auctioned on ebay at http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/coram1739/ from 18 – 28 March, 2010…

or check out the fanpage www.facebook.com/coramsince1739 for further information about the campaign.

Donated by actor Jeremy Irons: a gold (Hallmarked – though unable to read clearly)  St. Christopher’s pendant of triangular form attached to complimentary slip.

Many of the original Coram mothers left ‘love tokens’ to identify their children in case they could come back for them. These were coins or scraps of ribbon, buttons, anything they had. But most were never able to return and so thousands of children lived their lives with only these simple items to remind them of their mothers.

The Tokens of Love campaign is a tribute to the continuing heartache of parents who, for whatever reason, are parted from their children or are unable to care for them.

Coram has been creating better chances for children since 1739. Established as the Foundling Hospital, a home for abandoned children dying on London’s streets, Coram has developed a range of programmes that brings positive change for children today and restores hope for the children of tomorrow.

About Coram:

Coram is the UK’s first children’s charity, creating better chances in life since 1739. Coram tackles loss in all its forms and champions what matters most for children: safety, love, education, and opportunity. Coram provides help and support to children who have suffered, who have been separated from their parents, and who are at risk of losing their future. It also works to prevent harm, helping children get the best start in life and giving children and young people the education, confidence and skills to take responsibility for their own lives.

Famous names are donating Tokens of Love to raise funds for Coram’s work, helping the most disadvantaged children deal with loss and move on in their lives. Many of the original Coram mothers left ‘love tokens’ to identify their children in case they could come back for them. These were coins or scraps of ribbon, buttons, anything they had. But most were never able to return and so thousands of children lived their lives with only these simple items to remind them of their mothers.
