NSPCC Letter From Santa

The NSPCC has a magical way for you to surprise someone this Christmas with a personalised Letter from Santa. Each of these amazing charity gift donations allow you to make each letter totally unique, by adding the chosen recipients name, age, address and gender. You can even add a best friend’s name too!

There’s three different age categories to suit different reading abilities, and there’s even a special letter available for a newborn; a perfect memento to save for a babies first Christmas with their family. Plus if you wanted to send separate letters to more than one child in the same home, you can do that too as long as you order at the same time.

Each letter is beautifully illustrated and will arrive through ‘Rudolph Mail’, the perfect way to add a bit of extra Christmas pizazz on this amazing festive treat. Prices start for just a small £5 donation, with the money you are donating going a long way to not only help stop child cruelty, but also provide 24 hour helplines and support. The NSPCC work tirelessly to help those children who need it the most, and thanks to your kind gift, they will be able to help more people this Christmas.

For some children, Christmas can be the most difficult time of the year. But with your help the NSPCC will be working throughout the festive period to answer as many phone calls as possible from those that are in distress and need someone to talk too. Last year alone, the NSPCC received 50,000 contacts to ChildLine. That’s almost a 20% increase on the year before. Thanks to your support, the NSPCC will be there for many more vulnerable children this Christmas.

As an added bonus, each letter that’s purchased will be put into a prize draw for a once in a lifetime trip to Lapland to see where Santa and his Reindeer are actually from. All orders need to be in by 18th December 2012, with the winner being announced on 7th January 2013. Even more reason to make someone’s Christmas this year by purchasing an amazing Letter from Santa with the NSPCC.

White Hat Ball for NSPCC

NSPCC charity officials were over the moon with the news that the recent 2012 White Hat Ball raised a whopping £115,000 for ChildLine. No in it’s 7th year, the ball was held in London at the Lancaster London hotel for 640 guests. Whilst enjoying a 3 course meal and champagne reception, the guests were given the chance to bid on some really unique items, including a signed Salvador Dali engraving and a one off lunch at the top of the BT Tower.

The event was hosted by The Bill acoter by actor Graham Cole, with this year’s total dwarfing the £87,000 raised at the 2011 soiree. White Hat Events came together to help raise money to support charities like ChildLine, with their name derived from the white hats that the good cowboy wore in western films.

Chairman of the White Hat Events Committee, David Morgan, said -

It’s fantastic to see that the White Hat Ball continues to defy the financial climate and was able to raise more for ChildLine this year than ever before. The Ball has become a real fixture on the fundraising calendar and we’re delighted to support ChildLine’s hugely important work a result. Many thanks as well to everyone who generously supported the event, be it our sponsors, prize donors or our guests. It is wonderful to see how many people want to help to make a positive difference to the lives of young people in need.

ChildLine presented with the White Hat event team with a unique painting to thank them for all their fantastic work for the NSPCC over the years. Long may it continue if these are the kind of sums they raise, not bad for a nights work I’m sure you’ll agree!

NSPCC Figures Show Caller Increase Over Christmas

Childline

Figures just in from the NSPCC charity show that from Christmas Eve 2011 to January 4th 2012 there was a 19% rise in the number of calls made to Childline compared to the previous year. Over this period almost 50,000 calls were made by children looking for support over the festive season, with a quite staggering 50% increase on Christmas Day calls compared to the previous year!

14% of all of those calls were related to family problems, though there was a dramatic 103% increase in depression and mental health related counselling required this year! The one major plus of these number increases is that it shows more and more children feel comfortable contacting the NSPCC, particularly online, where the ChildLine website increased by 57% last year.

Let’s hope this number increase is a sign of more children feeling the freedom to discuss their feelings and problems with people who understand, and truly care.

Green Gear 2011 has been fantastic day and a great success. To see kids of all ages across Swindon wearing the NSPCC’s trademark green was very moving. It’s such a simple and fun way of fund raising and also a way of raising awareness of the charity and the work that we do.

This year’s efforts absolutely trounces last year’s efforts, with almost 3 times the participants and schools involved. A big well done from everyone at Donation4Charity to the teachers and pupils involved, and here’s to next  year being even bigger, if that’s possible!

Kylie Minogue Donates UK Tour Tickets to NSPCC

Feb 17 2011

NSPCC charity ambassador Kylie Minogue has donated six pairs of VIP tickets for her upcoming ‘Aphrodite – Les Folies’ tour, which kicks off in March 2011. Two sets are even for the ‘Splash Zone’, an exclusive area that is so close to the stage you’re almost part of the show!

All the tickets will be auctioned off at NSPCC events across the country, with one set already going for £2000. I’m pretty sure I’d pay that for a date with Kylie, not so sure a concert! Kylie, who became an NSPCC ambassador in 2003, has been a strong presence within the organisation for many years, and has no other official ties with any other charity in the UK.

Kylie said -

Cruelty to children is an everyday occurrence, which must be stopped. The work undertaken by the NSPCC is essential and I fully support its mission to end child cruelty. I support its vision of a society in which all children are loved and valued. The levels of abuse in this country are shocking. Without charities like the NSPCC, they would be worse. Together, we may be able to improve the lives of children within the UK.

Top Ten Charity Gifts this Christmas with Donation4Charity

by
alister

Nov 10 2010

Now, I’m not Father Christmas, and nor do I intend or pretend to be. I will admit though that it has been noted that I do have a rather rotund demeanour and a beard you could lose a badger in. I like to think of these points as a way of bringing festive cheer to people all year round, for what is a beard if it doesn’t bring happiness to your friends and loved ones?

Anyway, I digress. Now is the perfect time to be thinking of purchasing a few interesting presents for your friends and loved ones, and whether they have a beard or not, everyone deserves something a bit special at Christmas. We at Donation4Charity have a vast array of charity gift ideas that will allow you to bring something different to the table this year, as surely the thought of more socks cannot be filling anyone with the very elixir of Yuletide spirit ( though I don’t mind a pair of Pringle myself!)

A charity gift is an interesting way to show someone that not only do you care for them, but also that you care for those who are less fortunate across the world. The funds raised from your purchases help your chosen charities to provide relief to some of the world’s poorest people…

it’s the gift that keeps on giving.

We have hundreds of charity gift ideas available for your perusal, but I have personally chosen 10 of my favourite gifts to give this year (and not a stick-on beard in sight!)

  • WWF Adopt an Animal
    One of the most popular charity gifts for young and old is the adopt an animal scheme from WWF. This costs as little as £3 a month and the recipient will receive a cuddly toy, certificate, greetings card and of course provide funds to help save your choice of animal’s species and habitat.
  • Cows ‘n’ Things from AGE UK
    Why not purchase an online gift from Cows ‘n’ Things, the only charity focusing on the needs of older people in developing countries. Each virtual gift comes with a personalised e-card, or you could even have it delivered by post, just like they used to do in the olden days!
  • Oxfam Unwrapped
    Choose from a great selection of virtual gifts this Christmas, and if you spend £5 or more before 2nd January 2011 you will receive a £5 off voucher for Pizza Express. You can’t say fairer than that, so why not grab a ‘pizza’ the action (I know, terrible!)
  • Centrepoint Gifts
    This new and exciting virtual gift range helps young homeless people find their feet by providing a hot meal, shelter and education. Christmas can be a lonely and dangerous time for those living on the street, so a Centrepoint gift truly is a present that keeps on giving.
  • Cancer Research Gift Shop
    This cracking online shop offers an amazing array of gift cards, wrapping and most importantly, presents, this Christmas whilst providing the funds to help Cancer Research’s life saving work. Plus you can receive 10% off all order before 31st December 2010 if you add the voucher code 10TGN0017 at the online checkout, plus free delivery on all orders over £50.
  • National Trust Membership
    With the UK looking so magical during the winter months, now is a fantastic time to visit some of the National Trust’s 300 historic houses and over 600,000 acres of countryside. Great Britain has a truly unique national heritage that is unsurpassed anywhere on the planet, and the gift of a National Trust membership is the perfect present for people to explore some of the UK’s most prestigious sites. Plus if you pay by direct debit you can now receive 12 months for the price of 9. A great value gift.
  • Present Aid
    These great gifts are ‘virtual’, so they make the perfect last minute present. There’s a whole host of gifts to choose from that will help people who are less fortunate than yourself. Whether it’s a goat, a meal for 80 children or just a simple football, your donation will go a long way in helping change the lives of people who are desperate need of your help.
  • Sponsor a Puppy with Guide Dogs for the Blind
    From just £5 a month, you can provide a loved one with a gift that will truly help someone without sight to live a fulfilling life thanks to the aid of a guide dog. The recipient will receive a gift certificate, an exclusive calendar, plus regular updates on how their puppy is progressing during its training and subsequent initiation into a person’s life.
  • RSPB Membership
    The festive season sees a wide range of colourful birds come out to play, and what better way to enjoy the British countryside than with an RSPB membership? This great gift entitles the holder free entry to over 100 RSPB nature reserves across the UK, plus a free joining gift, a quarterly magazine, plus loads of extra bits for children.
  • UNICEF UK Shop
    This online gift shop has an amazing selection of presents for young and old, whether it is a babies bib, an Adidas football or a friendship bracelet. All UNICEF Gifts provide the funds to allow this amazing charity the ability to help children across the globe. Plus if you order today you can now receive ’3 for 2′ on Christmas Cards.

So there you go, those are my top ten choices of charity gifts this year available through the Donation4Charity website. Have I chosen these because I would like someone to buy them for me? Yes. Am I selfishly, sort of writing a letter to Santa in the hope he reads this via the wonderful worldwide web? Yes. Will I receive any of those gifts for Christmas? I hope so, I’ve made it pretty clear what I want!
