LET'S DIG A LITTLE DEEPER THIS CHRISTMAS WITH #SLIPPERSFORSHELTER!
Today’s post is something that is incredibly close to my heart, something that makes me realise how fortunate I am to have a roof over my head and a loving, healthy family. As to me, that’s what Christmas boils down to, yes the gifts are lovely, as are the decorations and food, but to me Christmas is about spending time with loved ones, sharing quality time and reminiscing on memories passed. Today I’ve partnered with Shelter to help them raise awareness this Christmas, I have a shocking (and saddening fact to share), that 120,000 children across the UK this Christmas will be homeless. In the midst of watching Elf, decorating your tree or treating yourself to a Christmas present, I just want you to stop for a minute and think about the statistic. It saddens me to the core that there are children without a home and family this Christmas, I truly believe that no-one should be along at Christmas and I will do whatever I can to help those in need!
