Giving Tuesday

November 30, 2015

WHAT IS #GIVINGTUESDAY?

logo givingtuesdayAs a team at gNappies, we wanted to ‘give something back’ in the wake of Black Friday and Cyber Monday so today #GivingTuesday (1st December in 2015) we are sharing with you how we are joining in with this global day of giving.

#GivingTuesday is an opportunity to come together to show the world why it’s good to give. Whether it’s making a donation, volunteering your time or just spreading the word at the start of the Christmas shopping season, #GivingTuesday is a call to action for everyone who wants to give something back.

Elizabeth givingtuesday1Let’s start with Elizabeth:

“My giving activity is donating to the charity Llamau – (pronounced lamb-eye) – an amazing Welsh charity that helps to get vulnerable young people and women off the street.

Elizabeth givingtuesday2My sister Dr Catherine Jones a senior lecturer at Cardiff University, along with her colleagues at the school of psychology, did a sponsored sleep out. The first photo was them building their shelters (Catherine is the dark haired woman in the middle of the photo) the second is them sleeping outside until 6am in November!! I’m very proud of my big sister!” http://www.llamau.org.uk

Ali

Is going to be sending a parcel of children’s shoes to the charity Sal’s Shoes. Ali discovered @cjbowry on instagram and was overwhelmed by her work…

SALS-SHOES

There are 300 million children in the world for whom walking with shoes is a rarity. This makes them extremely vulnerable to infection by parasites, such as hookworm; while injuries to the feet and ankles can lead to ulcers and other conditions which are almost always left untreated. Without shoes, many children are not permitted to attend school.

gNappies-SALSSHOES-2Sal’s Shoes. Crossing continents to make sure that your used, loved (and barely worn) outgrown children’s shoes are delivered straight from you to those in need. http://www.salsshoes.com/ Post yours to: Sal’s Shoes
Suite 77, Maddison House, 226 High Street, Croydon, CR9 1DF

The boys selected toys, useful things, lollies, warm socks, personal hygiene articles etc to be packed into shoeboxes. Packing shoeboxes for poor children has a long tradition in our family and Germany. So every year, we pack two boxes that will hopefully surprise and delight two little boys somewhere where it’s needed most.

The whole project is call “gift from the heart” and the charity behind it is: https://www.geschenk-mit-herz.de/

Gemma

Is going to go to the shops with her daughters to purchase a basket of goods and then they will take them to their local children’s centre where they run a food bank for families in need. http://www.familyfoodbank.org.uk/

Sarah and her children are going to donate some gifts to the local Children’s hospital to make “the poorly children, happy” (Oscar quote)

Steph

“I am going to Donate to Variety Charity at Kings College Hospital, they help fund care at the SCBU where Peyton spent some time when he was first born, so close to my heart.”
