Why I left a gift in my Will to Borderline
When I thought about it more, I realised that the stumbling block was actually writing a will, because it involves thinking about death, which is never easy. I had been putting it off for years. But when I went to a solicitor recently to finally do it, it turned out to be very straightforward.
When it was all done, I felt relieved. I have no intention of dying soon, and I plan to support Borderline in other ways. But now I know that, whatever happens, I will have made a small but lasting contribution.”
This frank account by Etienne highlights some of the difficulties we all face when considering leaving a gift in our Will. That is probably why only 7% of the population actually take that positive step, and only one third will even write a Will. But this does not have to be the case.

Borderline supporter Shreya says:
“Give as you Live is an incredible platform to raise funds for your chosen charity. It costs absolutely nothing to use and is a fulfilling way to contribute without much effort. I support Borderline as I believe that helping a specific group of homeless individuals will make a meaningful contribution to reducing homelessness numbers. I would totally recommend Give as you Live to others as an easy way to give back during their day-to-day life.
