Tonight I was sitting down in my warm cosy house, wine in hand thinking of all the crappy presents I had received in Christmas' past, cheap bubble bath that brought me out in a rash, anyone?
I then thought to myself, it could be worse...this lead me to the Shelter web page, now this is not exactly festive reading but it really makes you realise how good you have it.
I read a rather disturbing fact on the Shelter website that I would like to share with you
More than 71,000 children will wake up this Christmas in temporary accommodation without the safety and security of a home to call their own, Shelter said today.
This fact made me shiver...I never would have imagined this figure to be higher than say 10,000
My Dad gave me some money for Christmas and I decided to donate a portion of it to shelter, I'm not trying to be a martyr but it did make me feel good knowing that I have helped make a difference.
