DATE FOR THE DIARY:

CHRISTMAS AT KIDS COMPANY

For many of the children and families we support, Christmas can be a very sad time of loneliness, shame and hunger. A family struggling to cope with day to day existence is unable to provide a Christmas meal, let alone presents and party games.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

With your support we can provide a memorable day for our young people so they can feel the joy of being a child at Christmas. This year we are expecting to support 7,500 children and young people who would otherwise be unable to celebrate over the Christmas period.

Please help us to do this by buying a gift for a child from our gift list.

Gift List number 525473

You can also help by making a donation through the Big Give Christmas campaign. Each donation made through this could potentially be doubled, enabling us to reach even more children through your support. Please contact lucycrisp@kidsco.org.uk for more details.

Following on from the success of last year, we are delighted to be taking part in the DoItForCharity Santa Run 2012. It’s your chance to take part in a 5km or 10km race with over 2,000 other Santas  (Santa suits are provided!). We’d love you to take part with friends, colleagues or family, and no previous running experience is needed to take part – you can run, jog or walk the race.

Registration is £20 and we’re asking everyone to raise at least £100 in sponsorship. Please contact your Account Manager for more details, online here.

 

IN THE PRESS:

Iconic fashion photographer Bruce Weber has designed an exclusive t-shirt to support Kids Company this Christmas.  It is available to purchase in Selfridges stores now, and 100% of proceeds will come to Kids Company to help us support exceptionally vulnerable children and young people this Christmas.  You can catch a glimpse of the t-shirt in the Selfridges Christmas campaign directed by Weber himself here.  There are also limited edition sterling silver bracelets bearing Kids Company’s motto of “love is all it takes”, available exclusively in Selfridges.

 

Red Bull Studios invited four artists from Kids Company Urban Academy to work on tracks with studio manager Brendon Harding at the incredible Red Bull Studios in London. Having already put in the groundwork for their tracks, DavidNatalieKamali and Kayann made the most of the studio space using the vocal booth and live room. David and Kayann combined their love of guitar music to create a dreamy jazz number proving a nice contrast to Kamali’s acoustic pop joint. Kamali is an up and coming singer songwriter who goes by the name of Kay Remedy and Natalie Mitchell is working on her debut EP… so look out for her!
