Charity of the Month 2:
CRISIS OPEN CHRISTMAS
Homeless at Christmas - cold, wet and hungry with nowhere to go you can only watch other families shopping and going to parties.
A place at CRISIS at Christmas can be the start of a whole new life and even help someone out of homelessness for good.
A Crisis at Christmas place costs just £22.29 - that is just the start – each homeless person can get help with their problems
and this may change their lives. Crisis at Christmas begins on 22 December and lasts for nine days – will you donate the cost
of a place for one person – or even more people if you can manage it?
Your donations in the box will be gratefully received. Further information write to CRISIS,
68 Commercial Street LONDON E1 6LT. Tel: 0844 251 0111.
