The Christmas Present Project

My name is Anna Langford and I'm a 16 year old living in Glasgow.

I am spending the lead up to Christmas and the new year raising as much money as possible and collecting item donations to make sure every child has a gift under the tree.

Christmas is some thing that we all take for granted. We wake up early, open our stocking and rush downstairs to open our presents. Unfortunately though, not everyone is this lucky.

Poverty is at an all time high.  Studies have shown that 1 in 4 children are living in poverty. Statistics from 2017/2018 concluded that there were 14,075 children assessed as homeless.

I will not be doing this alone. This is being made possible with the help of my family, friends, support workers, social work and other organisations.

This project is not only about toys however, but also necessaries such as warm clothes, blankets, toiletries, winter jackets, food ect. 

I have created an instagram account to document this journey so if you'd like to follow me along, and find out a bit about me as a person, you should go check it out @thechristmaspresentproject

I'm overwhelmed with the amount of support I've received already. I want to thank each and every one of you that are making this possible!!

Love, Anna xxx
