NSPCC Christmas Wishes #festivefriday

Posted on 10th December 2010 in #festivefriday/ childline/ children/ family/ NSPCC

As Christmas draws alarmingly near, I can’t help but turn my thoughts to children who may not have all that they should. I don’t mean in terms of presents, I mean in terms of love, support, warmth, care and family.

The good people at NSPCC have launched a Christmas Wishes campaign and I’d like to help spread the word.

If you go onto their website you will see lots of ways to help other than the obvious ‘donate money’ although let’s not forget about that option too. I set up a standing order to the NSPCC years ago, not a huge amount, but every month it means that I make a small contribution to their work. It’s easy, effortless and it means I don’t forget.

You can send a letter from Santa.

You can create a personalised Christmas ecard.

You can create corporate Christmas ecards.

You can donate by shopping.

You can make a donation to the NSPCC and a friend or family member of your choice will receive a personalised card and festive bauble which they can hang on their tree as a reminder of their unique gift.

    Oh you lovely lady! Thanks for linking this one up! I’ve been a monthly supporter for years now too, they do stirling work. You’re a star. xxx

    We support the NSPCC in this household too, by monthly direct debit (or maybe standing order, one of the two). It’s been on Loft Monster’s for several years now. He up’s his donation every few years, just to keep it at a suitable level.

    I was going to write he does gift aid too – but having asked him, he’s unsure (!!! oh no!) We’ll have to check he is, that way, his donation is worth even more.

    Charity doesn’t just have to be at Christmas and it doesn’t have to be a huge amount.
