Each year, 52 Lives helps to buy Christmas presents for people who might otherwise not receive anything. In previous years we have helped to buy gifts for around 300 school children. This year we decided to do more....much more! We have expanded our Christmas Project to include a wider range of organisations, including women's refuges and homeless shelters, so we can reach even more people in need. We are aiming to buy 1000 gifts, but to do that we need your help!
During the next few weeks, we will try to help as many organisations as we can.....we began with 5 and have now expanded it to 8 - the latest ones are at the top of the list. We have set up Amazon wishlists for each of them and the gifts you buy will be donated to people very much in need of kindness. So please, click on the 'Buy a Gift' link underneath the organisation of your choice. You will be taken to their Amazon list where you can buy a gift that will be sent straight to the organisation to give to the people who need them.
They have been overwhelmed that people they don't even know might consider buying gifts for the women, men and children they work with. A woman supported by one of the organisations said it restores her faith in humanity, that she feels 'seen' and that she wishes all of you could see her children’s faces on Christmas morning when they receive a present. Another said she already feels like she's won the lottery.
Your kindness will make such big difference to the person receiving your gift...at a time when they really need it.
(When you purchase, please don't choose the 'gift wrap' option as they need to see what the presents are to ensure they are given to the right person).
