52 Lives

#257 - 70 young people

Request: Bedding / Messages

This week, we’d like to do something kind for 70 young people from Yorkshire who are at risk of homelessness.

Some of them have recently been homeless, and some are at risk of becoming homeless, for all sorts of reasons. Most have had problems at home and their relationship with their family has broken down, causing them to leave in a rush.

They have all been helped by a homeless charity’s ‘prevention service’ to secure a place to stay, but they have very few - or sometimes no - belongings.

The charity workers helping these young people asked if we could help provide one of the crucial things these young people need – bedding. With your help, we’d like to provide each of these young people with a bundle of new bedding, with a kind message tucked inside.

What We Need

1. Bedding from a wishlist: To buy some bedding from the wishlist, please click the link below. Your bedding will be sent directly to the charity workers helping these young people. 

2. Donations: Your donations will be used to buy bedding. Any donations above what is needed will be used to help these young people in other ways. 

3. Kind messages: We'd love to give every young person a kind message within their bedding parcel. To send a kind message, please either write your message in the form below (we will pass your message along, but your contact details will not be shared), or you can post it to 52 Lives (Life 257), PO Box 3154, Reading, RG1 9AT.

Buy some bedding


Please note, our donations are processed by Charity Checkout, which has now changed its name to 'Enthuse'. They have also removed platform fees for 52 Lives and instead ask donors to leave a 'voluntary gift'. This is completely optional - if you don't wish to leave a voluntary gift please just select 'other amount' and write zero. We will not be charged platform fees whether or not you leave a tip.
