I might have mentioned in an earlier post that I like to do and donate for charities. Today I found out about a pop-up store in London which also has an online website. It's called Choose love. They sell items like a dictionary, a baby grow and hot food, which you buy but instead of you getting them they send the items to a refugee in need of what you just bought. How clever its that?
In times like these when there are so many people fleeing their countries I think this is probably one of the greatest things you could to to help. The people who get these things are in desperate need of shelter, food and clothes. It's completely up to you what you buy, and there is no minimum amount of money that you have to spend, the prices range between £3 to £320.
The money you would spend on this are not in anyway near as much of a waste as that overpriced Starbucks coffee. And doing things like this is what I feel that christmas is all about, helping others and being grateful for what we have. Imagine being that refugee child getting a jacket to keep them warm during the cold winter nights, wouldn't anyone be oh so grateful for such a simple thing? Or cocking pans to eat proper cooked food!
I really think this is one of the most valuable things to do this christmas. This is something that truly makes a difference for so many people, and they would be forever grateful!
