Hi everyone, Jordan here. How many Christmas trees were put up and decorated this weekend? Christmas preparations firing up in earnest now? And what’s going to be on your dinner table on the 25th? Turkey, or maybe Goose? Beef, Gammon… or perhaps you’re vegetarian or vegan? We’d love to know.
Have you considered making a donation to a charity this Christmas? I’m sure many of you already make a donation to a charity at this time of year, but if not, perhaps you’d like to consider it this year.
Christmas can be a very hard time for those without security, comfort or even just company, so we would all do well to remember these people and reach out in some way. Perhaps you know of a care home or hospice that could do with some volunteer work? Or, maybe you know someone who will be alone over the Holidays? Someone who could do with a bit of company and a cup of tea.
If you’re already volunteering somewhere, or making donations this year, let us know in the comments to whom you have donated or where you have volunteered. Or, if you’re reading this outside the UK, let us know which charities you donate to at this time of year in your country.
It makes the world around us better when we actively partake in charitable causes. It’s bringing some of your light into another person’s darkness, so to speak. It’s about bettering the lives of those around us. We do this every day with our loved ones, our friends, and yes our colleagues, and we would all do well to extend a hand to those we don’t know, but who need our care, support or even just a helpful donation.
The Clarity Crafting community is full of caring, thoughtful men and women who look out for each other, and care about each other. You only need to look at our Facebook Groups and the comments on our blogs to see that. It means the world, and makes working at Claritystamp an absolute pleasure. It’s why we often refer to the Clarity Family. And it’s why we’re urging you to make a charitable donation this year, to bring the collective light of our Clarity Family to the darkness of those in need.
Here are three UK charities well worth your time and attention, who provide absolutely vital, important services to those in need;
Crisis – A donation of £28.87 will reserve a seat at a Crisis Christmas centre for a homeless guest. There are also many other ways you can volunteer with Crisis. Click here for their website.
NSPCC – Make a donation to the NSPCC this Christmas, which will support their 24-hour hotline for vulnerable children, Childline. Click here for their website.
Age UK – Click here to make a donation to Age UK, the country’s leading charity in supporting the Elderly in need.
Thank you all.
Right then, on to today’s Elf Hunt clue 🙂
Best of luck with the hunt!
Thanks again for reading. I’ll see you all again tomorrow.
Charity Matters. It really does.
