2020 has been a tough year for everyone. We have compiled an Amazon WishList of things that our care leavers have personally asked for. There are small stocking fillers, and some larger items; whatever your budget there is something that could make a difference to a young person this Christmas. All presents purchased will be delivered to our care leavers in the week before Christmas.
Our aims for the 2020 Christmas appeal:
Christmas Gifts to a minimum of 50 care leavers delivered to their door before the 25th December 2020, fulfilling as many of their wishes from their own wish lists as we can
A Christmas stocking to each of those 50 care leavers
Vouchers for food, phone usage, and high street shops
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How much are you looking to raise ?
A: There is no fixed amount, but we are hoping to give gifts to at least 50 care leavers
Q: How can I get involved ?
A: Because of the difficulties Covid-19 security is causing us all, only social care staff can deliver to the care leavers in their homes. You can donate by clicking the Donate tab above and chose how much you want to donate, or choose a gift from the Amazon wish list.
Q: What is the last date i can make a donation or purchase a gift ?
A: Because there has to be a period of quarantine of any gifts coming into Room 42, the last day that we can receive gifts will be Friday 18th December.
Q: Can I wrap any present myself ?
A: Unfortunately not. We need to know what the gift is to ensure that the same gift isn't given twice to the same person.
Q: Do the care leavers get everything I donate?
A: Everyone who works with us does so on a voluntary basis. 100% of your donation goes to the care leavers
