Between the Christmas lights and mince pies, it’s easy to forget the true meaning of Christmas: a time of love, reflection and giving. There are currently 3.7 million children living in poverty in the UK. That’s over a quarter of all children. Shockingly, 63% of children living in poverty are in a family where someone works.
For many of these families, spoiling their children with a gift or two simply isn’t an option. They don’t have the extra money to buy presents for their youngsters, family, and friends. That’s why we’re balancing out the indulgence by making a donation to one of our local children’s charities, which is currently being promoted by Radio Forth. However, Cash For Kids is based across 21 areas in the UK, at the heart of many of your favourite radio stations.
“We’re asking you to buy an extra present this year that we’ll give to a disadvantaged local child to make their Christmas morning special. We’re looking for new and unwrapped gifts suitable for children and young people aged 0-18 years, and you can donate at our drop off points across the region.”
We love the sentiment behind this cause. Even if you don’t have time to buy an extra gift you can donate money instead directly at the cash for kids website: http://www.cashforkids.uk.com/
Please join us and give selflessly this season x
