Not sure what to do when you see a homeless person? Want to help somehow but don't want to give cash?
TLDR - donate £3 to help homeless people get off the streets this Xmas. (Link in bio) 💷
Soon after moving to London, I began volunteering for @restartlives, a charity which helps men and women break the often brutal cycle of homelessness. 🏙️ The charity runs an amazing drop-in every week, with some of the best free meals going, clothes donations and a team of cracking staff and volunteers. But Restart isn't just about handouts. 🍝
Through its 5 step programme 'Regain', staff and volunteers assist guests in securing accommodation, finding employment, improving social relationships, mental health and well-being, and developing the confidence and readiness to return to independent living.
There's a mega sense of community at Restart, the crew of people that run the show are 10/10, and it's a real honour to serve on the team. I’ve also met some really incredible individuals and have had the most memorable conversations with people from all walks of life. 👥
As with most not for profits, Restart needs all the funding it can get. If we reach our target of £15k within the next month, the beaverbrookfoundation.org have agreed to match it - and we only have £3,000 left to go! 🙌🙌. For this last push, volunteers are taking part in a sleep out overnight on the streets of London. ⛺
So this is my plea to anyone whose read this far to donate a few quid (because genuinely every little helps) to this awesome cause. It's tough seeing someone begging on the pavement, especially as it gets colder, but supporting a charity like @restartlives which aims to get people off the street, is a great way to help. All the money raised will go towards supporting the steps in the Regain programme, including mentoring, reemployment and rehousing. Thank you everyone xx 😘 link in bio! •
