Lockdown has been incredibly hard on all of us, especially on those with nowhere to go. With Tier 4 lockdown newly in effect, stores closed, and foot traffic way down, homeless people have even less access to basic goods.
Recently, I’ve started creating some care packages for homeless people: backpacks equipped with items to helpfully provide a little comfort and relief in this difficult time!
Each pack costs around £35-£40 to put together! They contain a bunch of different essential items, including reusable water bottles, socks, toothbrushes/ toothpaste, PPE, food, plasters, soap, hand and face wipes, a rain poncho and more.
I’m on track to hand out 30 packs on Christmas Eve, and I am aiming to roll out around 200 over the Christmas period, or really as many as I can before heading back to the US, where I plan on continuing this work!
There are a lot of people out there who need some help and comfort this Christmas so it would be amazing if you could help me spread some love and kindness this winter by donating any amount you can! It would be hugely appreciated ❣️
I would also greatly appreciate any hats/ gloves/ hoodies & jumpers/ jackets & coats/ scarves and other warm clothing that you have lying around! I’d be happy to come collect from around London
P.S check updates for more detailed run downs of the packs!
