Why sleeping bags? Many are unaware that as of 2014, 1 in 6 children in PEI live in poverty, and this number has only increased over time. The reality of any child going cold throughout a PEI winter’s night can be prevented if we come together as a community. A sleeping bag will be a source of safety, warmth, and something they can call their own while being transported from place to place if the need arises – as it so often does.
Any donation would be accepted and appreciated! All proceeds go directly to purchasing the sleeping bags at cost. If you, for example, donate $100 from you or a group of friends/coworkers, that $100 donation could buy five children each a new sleeping bag for Christmas.
By being involved with the Santa’s Angels organization for the past four years, I have visited almost 700 + homes in Charlottetown on Christmas mornings. During this time, I have realized a lot about the needs of our community, and the fact that this is such a need in our own backyard is heartbreaking, but can certainly be helped! At 6am on Christmas morning we set out to deliver food, gifts and toiletries for those in need – this year, I hope that a warm sleeping bag can be a part of this delivery. I am willing to do the footwork, but I need your contributions to help make this a reality!
Thank you so much for your consideration to help fund “The Sleeping Bag Project” – you are helping change lives!
