My story

[p][span=font-weight: bold; font-size: 2em;]Sponsor my 88 Hours Volunteering & Reserve 26 places at Crisis Xmas[/span][/p] [p][url=http://www.virginmoneygiving.com/georgelondon]www.virginmoneygiving.com/georgelondon[/url][/p] [p][/p] [lt]h2[gt]The Short Story[lt]/h2[gt] [p]In spite of the tireless work of the many homelessness support groups - large and small - across the country; the focus from some local government groups; and groundbreaking schemes like No Second Night Out, the impact of growing mental health and housing issues alongside the ever-hardening bite of the recession mean that since 2010, homelessness and rough sleeping in Britain continues to rise. [sup]*1 *2[/sup][/p] [p]Crisis at Christmas this year plans to provide more support and more beds across more cities than ever before, and it needs our help to make sure it happens during this Christmas week, and on across the year through The Crisis Skylight Centres. [sup]*3[/sup][/p] [p][/p] [lt]h3[gt]Fundraising[lt]/h3[gt] [p]I think some of you know by now how this goes! This will be my eighth year volunteering with Crisis at Christmas and the sixth year, I'm inviting you to match my donation of time with your hard-earned money.[/p] [p]During the past five Christmases you have raised £7,329.08 (incl Gift Aid) in my name.[/p] [p]Over SEVEN THOUSAND POUNDS.[/p] [p]You are a humbling and awesome bunch of people, but sadly we're not done yet![/p] [p][/p] [lt]h2[gt][b]£590 Target - Sponsor to Match My Volunteering[/b][lt]/h2[gt] [p]I’ve once again calculated my fundraising target in line with matching my donated hours at minimum wage. This year, that’s 88 hours at £6.70 [sup]*4[/sup] which gives us a target of £590 and will fund 26 places at Crisis Christmas for our most vulnerable people. [sup]*5[/sup][/p] [p]If you feel you want to and are able, I’d be incredibly proud if you made a donation at [url=http://www.virginmoneygiving.com/georgelondon]www.virginmoneygiving.com/georgelondon[/url].[/p] [p]And please, DON'T FORGET TO TICK THE GIFT AID BOX! You can do this and still remain anonymous to me and to the public, and the UK government will give an extra 25% to Crisis - effectively donating the income tax you've already paid to them and making your donation count for even more. [sup]*6[/sup][/p] [p]£1300 of what we've raised together over the past 5 years has come from people remembering to click the box![/p] [p][/p] [lt]h3[gt][b]How much should you sponsor?[/b][lt]/h3[gt] [p]The short answer is, 'however much you feel comfortable with' (but remember to tick the GIFT AID box, and it's like tipping me 25%!)[/p] [p]It helps sometimes to equate your donation with something specific, so below are some examples;[/p] [ul] [li][b]£5.30[/b] + Gift Aid    (£6.70) matches ONE HOUR of my volunteering (at the UK National Wage level)[/li][li][b]£18[/b] + Gift Aid       (£22.29) reserves ONE PLACE at Crisis at Christmas[/li] [li][b]£36[/b] + Gift Aid       (£44.58) reserves TWO PLACES at Crisis at Christmas[/li] [li][b]£59[/b] + Gift Aid       (£73.70) matches me volunteering for ONE NIGHTSHIFT (at the UK National Wage level)[/li] [li][b]£90[/b] + Gift Aid       (£111.45) reserves FIVE PLACES at Crisis at Christmas[/li][li][b]£180[/b] + Gift Aid       (£222.90) reserves a TABLE FOR 10 at Crisis at Christmas[/li][li][b]£472[/b] + Gift Aid     (£589.60) matches volunteering for all EIGHT NIGHTSHIFTS (at the UK National Wage level)[/li] [li][b]£662[/b] + Gift Aid     (£827.20) matches volunteering for all EIGHT NIGHTSHIFTS (at the London Living Wage level [sup]*7[/sup])[/li] [/ul] [p][/p] [p][/p] [lt]h2[gt][span=font-weight: normal;]Want to Volunteer?[/span][lt]/h2[gt] [p]It's not too late if you want to find out more about volunteering yourself - click through to [url=http://www.crisis.org.uk/pages/volunteer-christmas.html]http://www.crisis.org.uk/pages/volunteer-christmas.html[/url] or ask me for more info. I guarantee that the experience will benefit you and somebody else, which is what's known as a win-win![/p] [p]If you're trying to decide which centre and which shift to join, I can highly recommend [b]Night-Shifts[/b] at the [b]Outreach Rough Sleeper’s Centre[/b]! ;-)[/p] [p][/p] [lt]h2[gt][span=font-weight: normal;]Thank You For Reading![/span][lt]/h2[gt] [p]Wishing love, light and laughter for you all through the rest of December and into the new year ahead, and thanks again from me and from my fellow volunteers and guests for reading this far. And if you didn't donate here today, be a bit extra-nice to someone today when you wouldn't normally. :-)[/p] [p][/p][p][/p][p][/p] [lt]h4[gt][b]George[/b]. xx[lt]/h4[gt] [p][/p] [p][/p] [lt]h3[gt][span=font-weight: normal;][hr/][/span][lt]/h3[gt][lt]h3[gt][span=font-weight: normal;]Links[/span][lt]/h3[gt] [p]How much have you and I raised this year? -[url=http://virginmoneygiving.com/georgelondon]http://virginmoneygiving.com/georgelondon[/url].[/p] [p]Are you thinking of volunteering? - [url=http://crisis.org.uk/pages/volunteer.html]http://crisis.org.uk/pages/volunteer.html[/url].[/p] [p]Volunteer for a Crisis Night Shift - [url=http://www.crisis.org.uk/pages/night-owls-make-christmas-happen.html]http://www.crisis.org.uk/pages/night-owls-make-christmas-happen.html[/url] (& [url=https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10152512129582654]https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10152512129582654[/url])[/p] [p]Throw a fundraising party! - [url=https://community.crisis.org.uk/christmas-party-2015/party]https://community.crisis.org.uk/christmas-party-2015/party[/url][/p] [p][/p] [lt]p style="padding-left: 30px;"[gt][i][sup]*1[/sup] [url=http://www.crisis.org.uk/pages/homelessnessmonitor.html]http://www.crisis.org.uk/pages/homelessnessmonitor.html[/url][lt]br /[gt][sup]*2[/sup] [url=http://www.crisis.org.uk/pages/-about-homelessness-61900.html]http://www.crisis.org.uk/pages/-about-homelessness-61900.html[/url][lt]br /[gt][sup]*3[/sup] [url=http://www.crisis.org.uk/pages/what-we-do-crisis-skylight-centres-61897.html]http://www.crisis.org.uk/pages/what-we-do-crisis-skylight-centres-61897.html[/url][lt]br /[gt][sup]*4[/sup] [url=https://www.gov.uk/national-minimum-wage-rates]https://www.gov.uk/national-minimum-wage-rates[/url][lt]br /[gt][sup]*5[/sup] [url=https://community.crisis.org.uk/reserve-a-place-general]https://community.crisis.org.uk/reserve-a-place-general[/url][lt]br /[gt][sup]*6[/sup] [url=https://www.gov.uk/donating-to-charity/gift-aid]https://www.gov.uk/donating-to-charity/gift-aid[/url][lt]br /[gt][sup]*7[/sup] [url=http://www.livingwage.org.uk/calculation]http://www.livingwage.org.uk/calculation[/url][/i][/p]
