We have served our homeless friends more than 43,000 times in 2020. Over the Christmas period we will run 55 outreach events providing meals, clothing, toiletries and sleeping bags more than 4000 times. On Christmas day we are hosting a Christmas lunch with partners DineAtMine & Chameleon, in addition to serving Christmas lunch on the streets of Central London and returning to serve dinner in the same areas.
Under One Sky is a collective of more than 1000 private individuals. Nobody is employed by Under One Sky. Our work is 100% volunteer based. Under One Sky was founded in 2012 and had since then supported 4000 homeless friends until the first lockdown in March. By the end of 2020 that figure will has exploded to 50,000 (lockdown video).
We have poured all our resources into supporting our friends on the streets. This is why we are continuing with this funding campaign set up in Nov 2019 instead of creating a new winter specific one. We have little left of the funds raised to date:
2019 Dec to 2020 Dec: £190,000 spent / 200+ outreach events / 43,500 served / £4.4 cost per serving. Items provided includes food, drink, clothing, sleeping bags, toiletries, £30 gift cards to Argos, mobile phones, train tickets and shelter during 1st lockdown.
We need to keep raising funds to keep going through the winter months. Your support helps us keep our friends going each day during this pandemic and might very well save lives. We go the extra mile for our friends have helped several into accommodation, employment and get reunited with their families.
Our teams are that light in the darkness for all those who remain abandoned on the streets. We will continue to be that daily until the end of winter. We meet people affected by homelessness in a spirit of compassion and have established many personal friendships out there. Our aim is to make everybody feel they belong in this world and to let them know they have not been forgotten.
