Kids Company’s Christmas Appeal from Kids Company on Vimeo.“Traumatised children often think of harming themselves during the Christmas period. Their sense of loneliness is enhanced as they watch families gather to celebrate and exchange presents. So this year we’ll be an extra family for our children and give them the hope and sense of belonging they’re yearning for. With your help we can transform their despair into childlike joy. We’ll fill their bag with a present, their pocket with a food voucher and their belly with Christmas lunch. Kids Company will open on Christmas Day for over 4,000 children, young people and vulnerable adults.” Camila Batmanghelidjh
Every year we arrange a truly special Christmas day for the most vulnerable of our children and young people, who would otherwise be alone, or without food and presents to mark the day. We host a Christmas Day party where we provide games, activities, storytelling, a Santa’s grotto, a Christmas dinner and presents for all the children who attend. We also deliver food parcels to reach a further 7,500 children and their families in the community.
With your support we can provide a memorable day for our children, so they can all feel the joy of being a child at Christmas.
Please, spread some goodwill this Christmas and help us make it one to remember for our children and young people by donating through the following outlets…
Kids Company’s “Make a Christmas to Remember” Facebook application enables supporters to donate items from a ‘shopping list’ which includes everything from the sprouts and stuffing on the children’s plates, to the tinsel on the tree, to the presents underneath. Supporters can invite their social network to join in and help via the application!
