This isn’t a Trust mentioned in my books, so what is it? I did a competition in my Facebook Group to send a deserving person a gift. I received several emails asking for a food card for a family member. Together with Christy Pritchard and Jordie Howes, we are setting up a GoFundMe site to raise money for families who’ve fallen on hard times through no fault of their own. Many years ago, I was in an unpleasant situation, and without the kindness of strangers, my children wouldn’t have had a Christmas. Many families, especially in the last few years, have fallen on hard times. Covid lost so many jobs it was a crisis. Sickness and unforeseen injuries also add up.
Our target is to raise money to send families a Christmas Hamper, with the key ingredients for a main and evening meal. Many food banks are closing when the need for them is at an all-time high. We’d also like to put a gift card in for fresh food, turkey, veg, and dessert. And also provide a box of chocolates for them. Seems quite simple, really, but we can’t do it without you. We’d also like to provide some small gifts that can be picked up when they collect their hamper from the food bank.
Our second target is to provide either a voucher or goods ourselves, for food banks to help bolster them at Christmas and through the year. Too many people are in need and may not realise that this year could change drastically for them.
And our final goal will be announced in August/September with a PO Box number for you to send cards to, so we can include them in the packages.
Most people, at one point in their lives, will need a helping hand. We are reaching out asking you to help us help others survive a difficult time and allow them a helping hand to get back on their feet. I got back on my feet. Now it’s our turn to help others, but we can only do that with your help.
As Phoe says in my books, even five bucks can make a difference. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you all in advance.
