GIVE A VULNERABLE CHILD THE GIFT OF CHRISTMAS WITH CROWDFUNDER
Help us host the UK’s biggest children’s community Christmas dinner ever for over 4000 vulnerable children, young people and carers!
This Christmas, Kids Company is trying to meet unprecedented levels of need so, for the first time, we have partnered with Crowdfunder to help us make this magical day happen. Crowdfunder is an alternative funding platform that allows fantastic ideas and initiatives to become a reality, as people pledge donations online towards a target amount and receive a reward in return. You can select one of the fantastic rewards donated by our incredible retail supporters and famous friends, including exclusive Smythson Ipad covers, luxurious cosmetic products from Elemis and even collector’s items from the legendary James Bond series.
For a vulnerable child Christmas Day can be a devastating combination of shame, loneliness and despair. With poverty levels rising, many children will wake up without any presents to look forward to and many admit that they won’t even have a hot meal.
“When you are left alone on Christmas Day, the most painful shame takes over. No family or friend to turn to on a day when everyone is gathered together. It is for the children, young people and traumatised carers who are terrified of Christmas that we open on Christmas Day at Kids Company. It’s a joyful, mad, ramshackle day enriched by the generosity of complete strangers. On the 25th of December we bring together those who have needs and those who can meet them in one big celebration” – Camila Batmanghelidjh, Founder and Chief Executive of Kids Company
Our staff and an army of volunteers will work together to create a winter wonderland filled with toys, games, a Santa’s grotto and, of course, a hot Christmas lunch for all! You can help make this happen – the more money we raise, the more children we can help.
