After the year we’ve had, we all need a Christmas we can celebrate. We at SPEAR totally agree and although we can’t take part in many of the activities we have come to take for granted, we’ve got plenty that can help you celebrate Christmas while raising vital funds for our work with people experiencing homelessness.
Sadly, our support is needed more than ever, with the number of people found by our Outreach Teams being the highest ever.
Keeping In Touch
As we’ve been distanced from those we love, getting in touch is more important than ever, and how better than using the ranges of SPEAR Christmas Cards?
We are delighted that Claudia who designs for Superfumi has launched a selection of festive cards supporting SPEAR, with 10% of each purchase being donated to our work.
As well as looking exquisite, each design can have a personalised message included as part of the design. There are more details here
However if you are more digitally minded we also have a range of e-cards. What makes these really special is they are designed by our clients, staff and supporters. You can find the stories behind some of the cards here
Getting Ready for Santa
Are you eagerly looking forward to the guy in red suit to land on your rooftop descending down the chimney with a sack full of goodies?
Or are you pondering the piles of stuff gathering dust from previous Christmases and wondering where all the new gifts would go?
Thankfully there is a great way to easily clear out all the unused and unwatched films, books, CDs and games.
By loading the Ziffit app to your phone it is turned into a barcode reader which will tell you instantly how much your donation raises for us. Just a few minutes later you’ve cleared your shelves and raised a significant donation. More details here
Could you be a Christmas Party Hero?
The highlight of any festive period is getting together as work colleagues or as community groups and letting your hair down with a slap up meal and more than a few laughs at the Christmas Party.
Could you, your friends or company donate via Christmas Party Heroes so the money you save goes to SPEAR?
Spread the Word
On the run up to Christmas we’ll be telling lots of stories of our work, our clients and supporters. It’s really easy to keep up to date. Keep an eye on our news page on the website. You can sign up to our regular newsletter.
We’re also regularly updating stories on social media, so please follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Your Donation can help us turn around people’s Christmases
Alternatively could you budget for an extra Christmas present and donate the value to SPEAR. Of all the presents you give, the opportunity to move from homelessness to independence is a present like no other. There are may ways to donate, but by clicking here you can go straight to our Christmas campaign with JustGiving.
Thank you for supporting our work
SPEAR wishes you and your family a wonderful Christmas
