Homeless at Christmas .org
We give out Christmas Gift Bags to the young and old homeless who happen to find themselves unfortunately living on our streets.
Any season of the year is a terrible time to be homeless. But the festive season can be a particularly cruel time to be cold, hungry and alone. It is a time when everyone else’s party season can leave them feeling even more vulnerable and isolated than ever. Our Christmas gift bags are not only practical, but show them that someone is thinking of them at Christmas time.
Our gift bags contain hats, gloves, gifts, chocolate, fruit and even pizza!
This is also home to the brand NEW initiative…
“Write To Someone You Miss This Christmas”.
Our exclusive Christmas cards for the homeless and families living in poverty come with an envelope and a stamp already attached ready to post. There are many more important things for homeless people to worry about than finding money to visit nice card shops and buying stamps.
‘Homeless at Christmas’ provides cards and stamps, not only are they in our Christmas gift bags… but they go out of hundreds and hundreds of homeless people. They help them to get in touch with a friend, family member, or someone special they miss.
Not everyone who is homeless has a mobile phone with credit, or even remembers someone’s phone number. It’s harder than ever to stay in contact without social media.
Even knowing what to say in a text out of the blue can be difficult too. But everyone remembers where a special someone lives, and everyone likes to know that friends and family are safe. Everyone likes to receive a Christmas card.
