Weʼre raising £500 to create Bags of Kindness for homeless women this Christmas
- London, United Kingdom
- Local community
- Time left
- 4 days to go
Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
Having access to basic things like warm clothes and sanitary products can be hard or impossible when you are vulnerable and living on the streets. We'd like to make a difference this winter by creating bags of useful items to give to those in need.
To stay updated on our latest news, find out more about creating your own bag (and/ or contribute items to a bag) come and join us in our Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/bagsofkindness/
We're helping vulnerable women living on the streets. Often the reason why women end up homeless is because of abusive and unsafe relationships. Once on the streets it's often a matter of time before the woman ends up sex working. The streets are not a safe place to live for anyone but even more so for women who often have children with them too.
Please make all donations by December 15th 2016.
The funds raised will support collection and storage of the bags, transport for getting them to where they'll be most needed, and buying much needed items to add to the bags. Then we'll drop off the bags between December 17th & December 24th 2015

Love this initiative and I'm really impressed how you've upped your game this year --- the lists, the drop off points and dates! I'll be dropping off my bag next week.

Ten pounds is not much. But at the moment it is all I can donate. I hope it will help to get an item to make Christmas a little warmer and brighter for one of the many homeless women.
