Why Not Do Something Different This Christmas

Christmas gift

We have now well and truly hit Christmas. With just over 10 days to go until the big day panic starts to set in for some of us. I think it’s time to just accept the fact that it happens every year, on the same day and in the same month. It’s there just like birthdays, Easter holidays and of course, the New Year.

For the first time since I can actually remember I have been able to buy AND wrap all presents before December even began. Sometimes I love Christmas and sometimes I hate it. The idea of buying things for people who probably don’t even need it or just giving because that’s what Christmas is all about. But what if it doesn’t just have to be about spending hundreds of pounds on gifts in cause of the festive time of year.

Have you ever wondered if you could do more? Something that’s more than just giving away presents? Christmas is about family, friends, sharing, celebrating, giving and receiving and coming together as a community. But every Christmas are people out there that don’t have family, friends or receive presents.

Every where around the world charities, families and even local shops are collecting to give to the homeless this Christmas. So as well as giving and celebrating this Christmas why not give to the homeless. Especially with the weather changing from freezing cold to a little humid there are people out there that have next to nothing when it comes to clothing and essentials. So what can we donate and where do we take it?

One of the biggest items homeless people lack is actually socks. Just imagine what it would be like living day to day without the comfort of socks? In the winter season socks and thermals are very much needed to help those less fortunate. As well as these you can also donate old clothes, hair brush, toothbrush, sweets, blankets, torch, baby wipes, tampons and maybe even a Christmas card. If you want to make a difference this Christmas then give something to those in need.

There are many different charities you can donate to around the area in which you live. Simply research homeless shoebox and find the nearest donation point to you. Make someone’s Christmas this year with a little festive donation.
