Story

Hi Everyone,

As many of you may be aware, a bunch of us are organising a Christmas Giveaway on Boxing Day for the homeless across London and the aim of this page is to raise some money to help with the cause.

We would love to get as many people involved as possible - if you think you can spare your friendly face and some time volunteering, it would be most greatly appreciated. However, we understand that this might not be possible and we hope this page would provide another medium for you to provide some support.

If you have a bag, any type of bag, that is of no use to you anymore, please give us as this would be used in packing the items that we would be giving to each individual.

Each Giveaway bag will contain daily hygiene products such as toothbrush, toothpaste, face wash and other essential products. We are also looking to receive donations of blankets, sleeping bags as well as coats/jackets, shoes and trainers. This would be distributed alongside the giveaway to at least provide them with some warmth.

This cause has been created by Milly's Brownies and aManandHisCat who will also be providing nutritious brownies and hot coffee alongside the grab bags.

Please support this cause, whatever way you can. Every little helps and will go a long way in making a difference in this current harsh weather conditions.

Join us and help us keep them warm this Christmas season!!!!

Thank you.

if you would like to sponsor this cause or volunteer please contact Hannah on 07947374090.

    The purpose of this giveaway is not just to help keep them warm but to help them feel better about themselves.We are aiming for the use of daily toiletries to assist in daily maintenance to help them to build their confidence through their appearance therefore detaching themselves from the stigmatisation of homelessness. Mental health is reported to be highly linked to homelessness. In 2015, 32% of single homeless people reported a mental health problem, and depression rates, for example, are over 10 times higher in the homeless population.

    I would like to thank you all for the donations thus far; monetary and clothing. To know that there are supporters out there is very humbling and I hope that we can push this further to make a difference to the homeless this year.
