EEEEEEEEEP 3 MORE SLEEPS TO GO LOVERS! <3

As this is my last blog post before Christmas (WHOO), so excited to get that Out of Office on the emails, wrap my presents and neck some prosecco, I wanted to share a Christmas project that I've been working on for the past six weeks or so. Sorry if I've been a little quiet on the blog/social media front but this is why!...

So, last year I set up a project called #ShareThisChristmas where I donated lots of products that had been sent to me personally, but I also called upon brands that I've built relationships with over the past 5 years to donate anything that they had left over from warm clothing, coats, hats, scarves to beauty products, perfume, toiletries, children's toys and SO much more!

The response I had last year was absolutely bloody breathtaking and I was able to help over 500 people across 3 different Women's Refuges, my local Age UK and my local Little Havens. This year I've spent the last few month or so rounding up products from my gift guides and from the wonderful brands involved, and have bagged them up in some stunning santa sacks sent over by the super lovely Stuart at Your Print Partner (thank you!).

I took some pictures of the lovely gifts donated for this cause, and I truly hope that they go to a good home, and as much as I'm aware one gift one change someone's life I honestly hope that it makes their Christmas a little bit brighter, for them to know that they're loved and being thought of, all year around but especially at Christmas. A time of year when I truly believe that no-one should spend it alone or have nothing.

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to every brand involved, without your help and support I wouldn't have been able to help nowhere near as many people as I have. I've worked out that this year I've been able to help around 700 people across 4 Women's Refuges, my local Little Havens, my local Fair Havens and Centrepoint too!

I'm honestly so overwhelmed to be able to help so many people - for me, this is the best Christmas present that I could ever have. For me, Christmas is about spending time with loved ones, ensuring that they are healthy and happy, so I chose to spend some time spreading some kindness to others this year!

This project was really just to share some love and kindness at Christmas but to also raise awareness in the hope that you lovely lot are able to help this Christmas, whether it's a product/money donation or volunteering. Remember, that a little can really go a long way! <3

I hope you all have the most wonderful Christmas and New Year!

All my love, Hayley xo

    Oh my gosh, this is so overwhelmingly lovely – it must have taken an eternity to put together, though I’ve no doubt you’re aware of how many smiles you’ll be bringing to those in need’s faces this Christmastime. And how kind for so many brands to have got involved! Generally, I tend to donate more at this time of year, though hadn’t thought to actually donate gifts directly; definitely something I’ll be keeping in mind from now on. Wishing you a really, really lovely Christmas Hayley.

    What a fantastic project, well done for putting it together!! What a wonderful world it would be if everyone donated a little bit of their surplus goods to those who need them more or to charities who can raise funds for worthwhile projects by selling them. Love love love xxx
