Be an Elf - OPFS Christmas Appeal 2020
Why we need your help
“When I received something from the OPFS Christmas appeal last year it made my family feel included. My daughter felt special that someone else was thinking of her.”
Christmas should be a time to celebrate, enjoy our family and have fun together. But for some single parents and their children, Christmas can be the loneliest time of the year/very lonely.
For parents who are struggling with money and who are alone at Christmas, it can be hard to give children the magical day they’re hoping for. Some parents don’t have much money. Some children don’t have other family to see at Christmas time. That can make it harder to have the magical day every child wants.
And this year, times are even tougher. Lots of single parent families are feeling more isolated and have lost income because of the pandemic.
That’s why your donations for the One Parent Families Scotland Christmas Appeal are more needed than ever before.
Things are a bit different this year, so we’re asking you to donate money online to help buy toys and food for single parent families this Christmas.
And, because we know that loneliness is one of the biggest challenges for single parent families – especially hard at Christmas – we’re also asking you to share a nice message for single parents and their children.
Be an elf. Spread cheer. Make sure every child has a magical Christmas this year.
