Christmas Cards have been passé for some time. But we still like to mark the occasion, and put something back.
So we thought we’d contribute to LandAid’s excellent ‘alternative Christmas Card’ fund, and this year Land Aid have raised a record-breaking £37,500 just from this one initiative.
According to LandAid, this money is enough to provide a safe warm home for two young people who have been homeless, as well as helping to refurbish another empty property to turn it into affordable housing for young people.
These funds are life-changing for young people like Lukas, who had no-one to turn to and ended up on the streets last winter. Thanks to New Horizon Youth Centre, a project LandAid funds, Lukas received the support he needed to become independent and is now settled happily in his own home.
