This year we decided to do something different and instead of the office taking part in Secret Santa we decided to donate what we would normally spend on gifts to a worthy cause.
Suggestions were invited from the team on which charity we should donate to and Jac suggested the charity Crisis.
Crisis is a national charity for homeless people. They help people directly out of homelessness and campaign for the changes needed to solve it altogether.
For £28.87 a place can be reserved for someone this Christmas and introduce them to the education, training and support to help end their homelessness for good through Crisis’ year-round services.
Jac arranged for donations to be collected in the office and today she has managed to reserve a place for 6 homeless people this Christmas! Below is the email of thanks she received.
Thank you so much for supporting Crisis. Your donation of £173.22 will make a huge difference to someone without a home this Christmas and could be the first step out of homelessness for good.
As well as working for Crisis, I’ve been volunteering every Christmas for 19 years and I can tell you first-hand what a difference that week makes to people who otherwise would have nowhere to turn. This Christmas you’ve given them warmth, support and hope for a brighter future. Thank you.
If you have any questions about Crisis then please visit our website or get in touch with us via firstname.lastname@example.org or 08000 38 48 38. We’re a small team so please do bear with us if we can’t get back to you right away, we’ll do our very best to answer you as soon as possible.
Thank you again for helping someone who is homeless this Christmas,
Supporter Services Manager
