THANK YOU!

Thank you so so much everyone for your donations! I am really pleased with the turnout so far! 

UPDATE!

  • I have made 14 gift bags with loads of useful and nice prezzies in (for the people staying in the emergency 'safe sleep' shelter) and everything else I buy (which will be mainly socks, gloves, hats and Christmas food) is going in a massive box for the shelter to distribute however they would like to as they also have 60 residents living in emergency and temporary accommodation.


  • I'm doing my last shop before I go the shelter on Monday morning before I go to work so if your thinking of donating in time for Christmas then before Monday would be great!


  • You can still donate using Paypal (via sponsorcraft) until the 2nd of January! Anything donated to the project after Christmas eve will go towards underwear, hats, gloves and things like that which I will bring to the shelter in January. This is what was suggested to me when I spoke to the manager on the phone and he is really appreciative of the project :)
