In 2014, we started working with Social Bite to try and help them get enough donations to feed people at Christmas. We hoped we’d be able to get a few hundred donations, but in the space of just a few days we had already received over 36,000 donations, allowing Social Bite to feed the homeless for an entire year! Since then, you’ve donated an incredible over 400,000 times to those in need.
Today we’re asking for your help again, to give £5 and make sure people across Scotland, Manchester and Newcastle have a hot meal, somewhere to go at Christmas, and a present to open.
Do something amazing this Christmas
- Your Christmas dinner voucher buys a homeless person a hot Christmas meal; if we receive more than enough vouchers, we’ll be able to feed homeless people right into 2020
- Your donation of £5 to give children, families and vulnerable individuals gifts will help buy presents for people across Scotland, Manchester and Newcastle; any additional funds raised will go towards local charities and projects in each area
- itison and Social Bite are supporting Glasgow Spirit of Christmas to provide gifts for those in need across Glasgow & the West
- Money raised in Scotland will go to Social Bite
- Money raised in the Manchester and North West area will go to The Booth Centre
- Money raised in the Newcastle and North East area will go to Changing Lives
- 100% of your donations will support those in need
- Social Bite’s fans include Will Smith, Leonardo DiCaprio, George Clooney, Dame Helen Mirren and Sir Chris Hoy, as well as thousands of amazing itison members
- As well as feeding those in need and providing gifts, itison members' donations have previously helped fund the Social Bite Village, providing housing, counselling and a huge range of support services to break the cycle of homelessness
- 1 in 3 of Social Bite's workforce are from homeless backgrounds. Your donation is not only providing a meal or gift, but also helping Social Bite to break the cycle of homelessness through employment
- Give your family vouchers as stocking fillers, and spread some Christmas love!
