This winter, 120,000 children will be homeless in the UK (1).
With child homelessness at its highest level in almost 10 years (2), Sarah is just one of thousands of mothers trying her best to raise a child without a roof over their heads.
It could happen to anyone.
“A man’s true wealth is the good he does in the world.”
As many families are over-indulging over the festive season, others are freezing on the cold UK streets.
What Would Jesus (pbuh) Do?
Put down the chocolates this winter and volunteer with Islamic charity Penny Appeal, as we follow the traditions of the Prophets, and help the homeless right here in the UK.
Do something amazing this winter… join Penny Appeal’s Team Orange!
Don’t have time to volunteer? No worries; you can still help.
Just buy a gift from our simple gift list, take it to your local drop-off location, and we’ll make sure it gets to someone homeless or in need this winter – it’s a great way to help someone practically, and let them know they haven’t been forgotten.
Or, simply donate!
Just £50 can buy a Winter Kit, with warm clothes, a thick blanket, thermals, hygiene essentials and more for a homeless person.
Our Winter Kits will literally save lives; please give generously to help mothers like Sarah and their children survive this winter.
No one should have to know how it feels to be pregnant and homeless.
Join us, as we help bring warmth and compassion to homeless families this winter.
