Our Founder guest edits National Geographic

Katie has guest edited the world renowned National Geographic magazine in September 2018.  She is one of only 12 people selected to do so in the 130 year history of the publication.  Katie lead content that explores a range of themes, including identity.  She says “When your appearance is drastically transformed in an instant, it’s life-changing”.  And what’s also life-changing is the rehabilitation The Katie Piper Foundation is unlocking access to for survivors of burns.

A survivor’s life continues to change and evolve.  Katie, upon reflecting on the medical journey she has been on, said to the National Geographic “I’ve now accepted that my old face is gone”.

Support Katie’s Run for Rehab

Katie loves nothing more than taking on a challenge and she’s donning her running shoes again to take part in the Royal Parks Half Marathon on 14th October 2018. You can help her reach her £7,000 target which will support burns survivors with specialist therapy at our live-in rehabilitation centre. To read about what’s motivating Katie to run and make a much appreciated donation, please check out her fundraising page: https://katiepiperfoundation.charitycheckout.co.uk/pf/katie-piper Thank you to everyone who has supported so far!

 

There are still a few places left on our Royal Parks Half team. Your personal challenge will turn into funds which will power The Katie Piper Foundation’s brand new live-in rehabilitation hub for survivors of burns. By committing to a pledge of raising £350, you’ll be a huge part of raising the ambitious target Katie has set for the team! If you would like to be part of our running team please email info@katiepiperfoundation.org.uk The deadline for runner registration is 24th August so get in touch as soon as possible to secure your place.

Katie’s Theatre Tour

We’re delighted to tell you about Katie’s first ever theatre tour, starting in March 2018! There’ll be plenty of chances to donate to The Katie Piper Foundation when you’re there, and if you treat yourself to the ‘meet and greet’ package, at least £10 of your ticket price will come straight to the Foundation.

In a time of glossy magazines, Photoshop, Instagram filters and app dating remaining in touch with reality has never been harder. Katie embarks on her debut theatre tour to share what she has learnt and what helped her remain positive even through the toughest of times. She will discuss her own battles with anxiety and explain how she has overcome its crippling clutches. Katie is opening her own diaries, photo albums and personal memories in this most intimate and revealing talk about her life.

Insecurities exist in us all and adversity in life is unavoidable, but how can it be managed? How can we find the light in the darkest of times? Katie believes no matter how big or small your challenges might seem, there is always a confident way forward and she will show you how. This is her story, this is her life, this is her wisdom. This is ‘What’s In My Head’.

Meet and Greet tickets are available directly from the venue. The package includes

  • A seated ticket in the front of the theatre
  • An exclusive meet and greet after the show with Katie
  • A copy of Katie’s new book ‘From Mother to Daughter’
  • An opportunity to have your book signed by Katie
  • At least £10 of your ticket price will come straight to The Katie Piper Foundation.
