This Christmas will be my ninth year as a Volunteer for Crisis at Christmas and as usual I have signed for all eight 11-hour night-shifts between 22-30th December at the Outreach Rough Sleepers residential centre.[/p] [p]Over the past six Christmases, you have raised £10,183.48 in my name to help support Crisis' work during the Christmas project and throughout the year.[/p] [lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt][b][span=text-decoration: underline;][lt]span style="color: #ff0000;"[gt]!!! YOU'VE ALREADY RAISED OVER [lt]br /[gt]TEN THOUSAND POUNDS FOR CRISIS !!![/span][lt]/span[gt][/b][/p] [p]With that in mind, I was obliged to set up a fundraising page again and for the seventh time, generously and selflessly give my friends and family the opportunity to get involved and give away their hard-earnt cash![/p] [lt]h2 style="text-align: center;"[gt]£650 Target - Sponsor to match my 90 Hours Volunteering[lt]/h2[gt] [p]I've once again calculated my fundraising target in line with matching my donated hours at Minimum Wage (now falsely rebranded as Living Wage). This year that's 90 hours at £7.20 which gives us a target of £650 and will fund spaces for more than 28 vulnerable adults this Christmas.[/p] [p]If you feel you want to and are able, I’d be incredibly proud if you made a donation here 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]£1,665 of what we've raised together over the past 6 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][span=color: #ff0000;]£5.76[/span][/b] + Gift Aid (= £7.20 ) matches [span=color: #ff0000;]ONE HOUR of my volunteering[/span] at the UK National Wage level)[/li][li][b][span=color: #ff0000;]£17.86[/span][/b] + Gift Aid (= £22.32 ) reserves [span=color: #ff0000;]ONE PLACE at Crisis[/span] at Christmas[/li][li]£35.71 + Gift Aid (= £44.64 ) reserves TWO PLACES at Crisis at Christmas[/li][li][b][span=color: #ff0000;]£64.80 [/span][/b]+ Gift Aid (= £81.00 ) matches me volunteering for [span=color: #ff0000;]ONE NIGHTSHIFT[/span] at the UK National Wage level)[/li][li]£89.28 + Gift Aid (= £111.60 ) reserves FIVE PLACES at Crisis at Christmas[/li][li][span=color: #ff0000;][b]£178.56[/b][/span] + Gift Aid (= £223.20 ) reserves a [span=color: #ff0000;]TABLE FOR 10 at Crisis[/span] at Christmas[/li][li]£518.40 + Gift Aid (= [span=color: #ff0000;][b]£648.00 [/b][/span]) matches volunteering for [span=color: #ff0000;]all EIGHT NIGHTSHIFTS[/span] at the UK National Wage level)[/li][li]£702.00 + Gift Aid (= [span=color: #ff0000;][b]£877.50[/b][/span] ) matches volunteering for [span=color: #ff0000;]all EIGHT NIGHTSHIFTS at the LONDON LIVING WAGE[/span] level [sup]*7[/sup])[/li][/ul] [p][/p] [p][span=font-size: 1.5em;]Want to Volunteer?[/span][/p] [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.
