Help hungry families

Hi everyone! 

So we all know  that there are many families really struggling lately, and tragically kids are going hungry. There has been some amazing efforts to look after kids who usually get free school meals during the holidays but this has also highlighted that as a result of the events of this horrible year many families who don’t usually get free school meals are struggling too. 

As a mum who listened to her babies crying to be fed and toddlers asking for constant snacks, and now my two teenage girls who seem to be able to empty my cupboards in no time at all, I cant imagine how it must feel to have to tell a hungry child that I have nothing for them- or to be a hungry child who, for whatever reason isn’t being cared for. 

It occurred to me lately while I was writing my latest rant and sharing my angry memes on facebook that it was helping me feel better but not actually helping any hungry children so I’ve decided to have a very amateur attempt  at doing a little something. 

I’m hoping that by asking my lovely friends, patients and fellow business owners that there will be enough of us to make a tiny bit of a difference in addition to all the brilliant stuff that is happening in our community. 

I don’t really have a plan or know what Im doing but if we can get as far as £250 then Satori Aesthetics will match it, and if we can go further then even better. 

I was hoping to fundraise throughout November, because unfortunately it seems unlikely that circumstances will change before Christmas.

To avoid any debate over who deserves it more than anyone else I thought I would donate anything raised to local foodbanks who constantly provide food to anyone who might need it and to the Middlesbrough and Teesside Philanthropic Foundation who help local people all of the time. 

I know times are harder than usual for most of us at the moment but even £1 off everyone would make a difference to someone.
