The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
How do you like to spend your Christmas?
Perhaps you like to sit in front of the fireplace with a hot chocolate or a glass of wine, surrounded by friends and family. Or sitting around the table enjoying an elaborate banquet with a variety of mouthwatering cuisine. Or sitting around the tree as you watch your loved ones open the presents that spill from its branches.But imagine this... sat in a cold street, amongst puddles of rainwater. With little to no food, no warmth and worst of all no company. We take these things for granted but please for one moment just try your best to put yourself in that situation and see how it feels. I know you're probably sat there thinking this is just one of those annoying posts you see at Christmas but the truth is right in front of you. This is the reality for over 250,000 people in the UK.I'm not here trying to solve homelessness as that is a global issue that cannot be solved by me alone. Although, I want to play my part by trying to improve their day by visiting some homeless people in Exeter, Devon ( my local area) and handing out Xmas care packages. In these packages, I'm aiming to include some food, toiletries, and some warm clothing e.g gloves or thermal socks. But I cannot do this alone. All I ask for is some donations and if enough people donate a small amount I can make this idea happen.
So, please... Help me to help our community.
