The festive season is such a joyous time for so many, but for others it can be the hardest time of the year. It’s important sometimes to take a step back and be thankful for everything we have, and try to use the fortunate position we’re in to give back when we can.
That’s why this year, we have decided to support KidsOut in their Giving Tree initiative. In collaboration with Women’s Aid, KidsOut are working with organisations to encourage them to ‘Ditch Secret Santa’ in favour of buying toys for children in refuge over the festive period. Every year 20,000 children flee domestic violence, having experienced physical, emotional, and even sexual abuse, they arrive at refuge with nothing but the clothes on their back.
We’re proud to be supporting the incredible work that KidsOut are doing, and it’s humbling to be able to make a difference to a child’s life, even if just for a moment, at such a small cost.
