At Humankind, we work every day of the year to support people in crisis, providing healthcare, emergency shelter, food, safety, security, and essential advice. A person in need accesses one of our services every 6 minutes, and Christmas time is no different.
In fact, the festive season is one of the most challenging times for many of the vulnerable people we support, as they cope with poverty, homelessness, loneliness, and isolation.
You can, however, support our vital work by donating to our Christmas appeal, to ensure that we can go the extra mile this winter.
Please visit our GivePenny page to make an online donation. Your donation will go directly towards helping those in need or at risk of harm this Christmas.
Alternatively, you can donate via text message by texting HKXMAS followed by your donation amount (HKXMAS 20, for example, to give £20) to 70450.
Texts will cost the donation amount plus one standard network rate message, and you’ll be opting into hearing about Humankind news in the future via telephone and SMS. If you would like to donate, but do not wish to hear more from us, please text HKXMASNOINFO, followed by your donation amount.
A donation to our Christmas appeal will go directly to help those most in need or at risk of harm. Please note, the following donation guides are intended as examples of our work only, and your donation may also be used in other ways to help the people we support.
- £10 could allow us to provide a pack of essential items, including personal hygiene and sanitary products, to someone sleeping on the streets.
- £20 could contribute towards our national service user fund, providing emergency funding for people in extreme hardship.
- £50 could completely transform Christmas for a family in poverty, providing basic food and shelter.
Thank you for your kindness this Christmas.
