Today is #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It’s a day to remind and encourage us to come together and do good.
This Christmas, we are asking you, our friends, to help share the love with those isolated and facing crisis this season. Because after all, every person deserves to be loved and especially at Christmas time – wouldn’t you agree?
Our LOVE Christmas Appeal is centred on a celebration; a wonderful opportunity for people to come together, receive food and gifts to help lessen the isolation that many face. For many, this event will be the only opportunity to celebrate the season.
A 2015 testimonial from one of our referrers at The Carers Centre…
“Thank you, all recipients of the five hampers were very grateful! One of the hampers went to a carer who cares for both his very elderly parents – the father has since passed away so I like to think that the hamper helped to make the last Christmas a better one than if he hadn’t had the hamper. Also the carer who received the hamper with the soft toy for her baby grandson is now in a hospice for her final days. I don’t mean to depress you but merely highlighting the value of the hampers in helping others find some temporary respite from their difficult circumstances. Perhaps you could feed that back to your donors?”
