For my DGS's Christmas presents, because they have all the toys that they could possibly want off their parents, I have given them a gift from the PDSA where they will receive magazines, colouring, badges, information etc every month for the year ahead. This gives to a very worthwhile cause which we have used for my darling doggie, and gives the children something to look forward to also.
My son today is taking tins of food for the food bank into college for an own clothes day. A lady was on This Morning the other day saying that she had no money, no presents, no food and hoped that her children left food on their plates so that she had something to eat that day. I was in tears listening to her and, from what Phillip said yesterday, so were others as lots of people had phoned etc to offer help to her. Unfortunately, there are lots of people like her, not fortunate to be able to put food on the table this Christmas nor presents under the tree. I wish I could do more but being on benefits myself, it's not easy here at times too. But I do hope that someone will benefit from the tins of food sent in today. And I do try to help charities where I can. I paid for 6 months to Tommy's earlier this year and donated to Children in Need and will probably do Text Santa tomorrow.
Do any other GNer's help with food banks or with other charities at Christmas or any other time and which ones?
