Could you give us 10 minutes of your time to support our 10th Anniversary?
Since we started our work 10 years ago we have supported thousands of homeless people to have a safe and stable home of their own. In 2014/15 35,764 people were registered as homeless in Scotland and only a quarter of these people will receive assistance from mainstream providers because of the shortage of accommodation. In the next 12 months we are aiming to set up a 10th Anniversary Fund to support some of these people to achieve what many of us take for granted – respect and dignity and a stable home-life.
Could you become involved in our Give US 10 campaign?
We are asking you and your firends to help us by donating ‘10’ whether this is 10 minutes’ worth of salary (donate 10 minutes of your salary via our website), a 10 minute challenge: stand on one leg, sit in a bath of beans, hula hoop, pogo, toss pancakes, eat ice cream, play keepy-uppy, or do press-ups! Could you put a team of 10/100/1000 people together to help us to raise even more money? We have listed below what support for the 10th Anniversary Fund could purchase.
- £100 will support the purchase of 4 starter packs that include basic essential goods: toiletries, basic cleaning materials and staple foods for homeless people who come to us with only the clothes they are wearing
- £1,000 will help support the cost of a Christmas meal for 250 people
- £10,000 will allow us to support 25 young people to be given safe and stable home of their home
We would be delighted if you would consider supporting us to help some of the most vulnerable people in Edinburgh, Angus and Perth & Kinross.
