Supporters of Veterans’ charity Alabaré can see their donations doubled this Christmas as the charity takes part in the UK’s biggest match funding campaign, The Big Give’s Christmas Challenge 2019…
The Christmas Challenge launched at midday today and runs for just seven days, until 10th December 2019. Recent figures from the Office for National Statistics showed a total of 726 homeless people died in in England and Wales in 2018, highlighting the urgent need to support those suffering from the most extreme forms of homelessness.
Throughout Christmas, Alabaré need to raise additional funds to support those facing this desperate situation. Through their services, Alabaré help Veterans who are either homeless or at risk of becoming so, come off of the streets and into a supportive environment. As well as providing accommodation, they also provide the support and guidance to break the cycle of homelessness once and for all.
Between the 3rd and 10th December, donations to Alabaré via the BigGive website can be doubled up to the value of the pledge pot, meaning supporters wanting to give this Christmas can have twice the impact.
Andrew Lord, Chief Executive of Alabaré, said: “We are delighted to once again have the opportunity to be involved in the Big Give’s Christmas Challenge. This will enable our supporters to make an even greater difference to the lives of the homeless and vulnerable Armed Forces Veterans in our communities.”
Jonathan Frank, Director of The Big Give, adds: “The Christmas Challenge is a great opportunity for the British public to maximise the impact of their charitable gifts. Launching on Giving Tuesday, we’re encouraging everyone to consider the causes closest to their heart and to donate, enabling us to help ensure those donations go even further.”
