It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

The return of the festive season can only mean one thing – alongside the re-emergence of Michael Bublé and Mariah Carey, it’s also a time for celebration, cheer, and charitableness. What better way to get in the Christmas spirit than by donating to our Christmas Meal Appeal?

What is the Christmas Meal Appeal?

The Christmas Meal Appeal returns this year, with the aim of providing every child at our partner projects with a nutritious meal and festive celebration this Christmas time.

For many of the children who attend our partner projects, daily life can be challenging. Our partner projects are based in underprivileged communities, where education isn’t necessarily a priority, and access to regular meals is limited.

It costs just 50p to provide a child with a nutritious meal this Christmas, so anything you can spare has the potential to make a huge difference.

How does it work?

Donating to the Christmas Meal Appeal couldn’t be easier. You can donate via our safe and secure website, or by text.

Simply visit our webpage and choose a gift. We’ve made it clear what your donation will mean for the children at our partner projects, so you can choose how much you wish to contribute.

If you’re feeling extra festive, why not make your donation on behalf of a loved one? You can choose to personalise your gift with a message to your chosen recipient. They’ll then receive an e-card, delivered on Christmas Day, detailing the impact that their gift will have for the children at our partner projects.

To donate by text, simply text MEALAPPEAL, followed by the amount you would like to donate, to 70085. For example, by texting MEALAPPEAL20 to 70085, you’ll donate £20 to the appeal. Please be aware that if you do not specify an amount, a default donation of £10 will be made.

What’s the impact?

Aside from guaranteeing you a spot on the ‘nice’ list, your donation will make a difference to the lives of thousands of children in Ghana, Kenya, and Zanzibar this Christmas.

The Christmas Meal Appeal returns following last year’s campaign – Give a Gift – to provide a fun-filled festive party and a nutritious, tasty meal to every child who attends our partner projects. We believe that Christmas should be a time to come together and enjoy the magic of the festive season, regardless of circumstances. 100% of your donation will go straight to our partner projects, so you can truly have a holly, jolly Christmas!
