Give the Gift of Hope to Those in Need this Christmas
Posted on November 29th, 2020 at 12:42PM
Each December we highlight those who are in desperate need of direct help - whether that is white goods, moving costs or counselling fees - we aim to bring hope to all those reaching out for our donors help - so that no individual or family is left with a need at Christmas time.
This Christmas however, the need for these items will be greater than ever as more people find themselves on reduced hours, unemployed or in poverty. Since March the need for help through Acts 435 has increased by 91% (in comparison to 2019), and thankfully our donors have stepped up to meet these needs; but we still have many people all around the country facing desperate situations, and who need a helping hand during this Christmas period.
We're asking as many people as possible to donate what they can. You can donate a minimum of £5 to any request, and you can donate to as many requests as you wish. But each pound will go directly to the person in need; to their cooker, food or heating. Maybe you can donate on behalf of someone else in lieu of a Christmas gift this year?
Throughout December on social media we will be taking you on an A-Z guide of the needs and situations that currently exist within the UK, and highlighting similar needs on our website. However, our giving will be operating as normal and you can choose to give to anyone that you choose, at any time!
We will also be sharing with you some positive stories and highlights of the year, so keep an eye on our social media channels during December!
If you are able to give at this time, and would like to make a donation directly to someone in need in the UK, take a look on our website: www.acts435.org.uk/give
