Crisis appeal: buy a Christmas Dinner for a Homeless Person in the UK

We are so lucky.  I know we might not think we are on a day-to-day basis, but, as the weather turns perishing, and the season of excessive consumption (in every sense) is upon us, we should all give pause and be grateful that we have warm homes, hot water, a bed each night, hot food on our tables, and people who love and care for us.  Crisis, the charity that helps young homeless people, has a campaign this year to buy a Christmas Lunch for somone for £24.  As well as a hot meal, in a warm and happy environment, this will also cover the cost of a health check-up, clothing, a haircut, and some time to chat with someone who can give advice on jobs, housing, and health issues.  So, as I crank up to the Christmas cooking, I will make sure I give some money to this worthy cause - if you are interested, check out the Crisis campaign and buy someone lunch too!
