Mission Christmas – making a difference at Christmas

Help us make Christmas Day different!

If you donate just one new and unwrapped gift, you can help make a difference for a child on Christmas Day.

Mission Christmas is back to make this Christmas Day different for local children living in poverty. It’s a heart-breaking thought, but there are thousands of children living right here in our community who are in danger of waking up to no presents on Christmas Day. For some families Christmas is a luxury they just can’t afford.

If you’re able to, please buy an extra present this year and donate it to Mission Christmas. We’re looking for new and unwrapped gifts suitable for children and young people aged 0 to 18.

Every gift donated and every penny raised stays local – so you can be sure that your generosity will benefit children living in our area.

If you would like to help support Cash for Kids Mission Christmas appeal, you can donate at our drop off point by 14th December:

The Data Lab
4th Floor, The Bayes Centre
47 Potterrow
Edinburgh
EH8 9BT
.

What’s more, if you make a money or gift donation, we’ll give you a pair of our Data Lab socks so you can enter our #DataSockCompetition!

There are other ways to participate too, or you can just make a donation – find out more.

Please note that Mission Christmas require all gifts to be at their distribution centre no later than 14th December.
