#238 - 100 children

Request: Toys and gifts from a wishlist / Messages

This week, we’d like to help more than 100 children in need. 

These children were already living in very difficult circumstances, and things have become even worse for them since the lockdown. Just having enough food every day is a struggle, so they don’t have the books, toys or games that so many other children have. This pandemic has affected all of us...but not equally. For children living in poverty and children with difficult home lives, it's a very scary time.

An amazing small charity called The Cowshed is putting together craft bags filled with games and activities, which are being distributed to each of these children. But they are in desperate need of more items and asked if we could help.

With your help, we’d love to fill these bags for them.

What We Need

1. Crafts and Games: We have set up a wishlist with the items they need. To buy a gift for one of the children, please click the link below. Your gift will be sent from Amazon directly to The Cowshed charity to give to the children.

2. Donations: If you would prefer to make a donation, please click the link below, and we will use the funds to bulk buy some items. 100% of what you give will be used to help them.

3. Cards and messages: If you would like to send a kind message, card or drawing to be passed along, please write your message in the form below (your contact details will not be passed on). Or you can post it to 52 Lives (Life # 238), PO Box 3154, Reading, RG1 9AT.

What We Did

The wishlist was bought three times over - items were being bought as quickly as we could add them. And we also raised almost £1000 in donations, which will help to bulk buy more items. Thanks to all of you, hundreds of vulnerable children's lives will be made a little bit brighter.
