I have decided to choose the Salvation Army for my chosen blog featured Christmas charity this year. What's yours? We don't see many of the Salvation Army in Ireland, but I know there are some in Dublin. They are an incredible Christian organization that offer practical unconditional support to anybody regardless of gender, race or creed.
I know money is tight for a lot of folk this Christmas. Yet if you and your friends donated nineteen pounds it would pay for a nutritional food box for a struggling family. Twenty eight pounds will pay for Christmas dinner for 5 lonely old people at one of their weekly Lunch clubs. Forty seven pounds pays for a meal run to help people sleeping rough. Sixty three pounds pays for a bed for a homeless person in one of their centres for three weeks. Go on folks support the Salvation Army Christmas appeal. You can find out more and how to donate at the Salvation Army website. That reminds me. I must make a donation myself.
Here's Mel C singing a song about the homeless. It's a good song to listen to and think about the homeless at Christmas. Lets spread the message of:
"Peace on Earth and good will to all men."
