Yorkshire and Proud
The good folk of Yorkshire have been showing just how generous they are with news of various donations reaching the Calendars 4 Kids headquarters over the last few days. A huge thank you to the lovely Christine from South Yorkshire who has purchased several Advent calendars ready to make a difference to children in her local area. Thank you also to Emma in North Yorkshire who is arranging a collection at her place of work and will be making a very thoughtful donation to her local food bank. We were also thrilled to receive a lovely email from Kate in the East Riding of Yorkshire who donated a stack of calendars via a food bank collection point in her local supermarket. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR GENEROSITY! I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before we hear from someone in West Yorkshire who is doing their part to spread a little magic this Christmas.
We’re also thrilled to announce that a major national food magazine has been in touch this week to say that they are going to give Calendars 4 Kids a shout out in a forthcoming article on their website. It’s all a bit hush-hush at the moment but we’ll share a link to the article as soon as it is published!
Over to you
There’s still plenty of time for you to support the Calendars 4 Kids campaign to make a real difference to children in your local area this Christmas. All you need to do is buy an Advent calendar (or several) and head to your local food bank. A quick Google search will show you where your nearest one is located, or you might be able to drop it off at a collection point in your local supermarket. If you want to have an even bigger impact, why not ask your work colleagues, college mates or friends to all contribute a calendar so that you can make a group donation. As always, remember to let the Calendars 4 Kids team know about your generosity so we can give you a shout out!
