Warm clothing can save lives. No one deserves to freeze to death on the streets over the festive season.

It's year three! Lets do it again and help save lives!!!

The aim is simple: to raise money to buy warm clothing for those without somewhere warm to go at night. 

No one deserves to freeze on the streets this winter. No human being deserves this and we can make a big difference with a small gesture. 

Last year I kept the page open for three weeks but the cold is sweeping in and I'm a little slower off the mark this year so lets see what we can do in two weeks!

Lets aim for £200 but anything is a massive bonus. I will use the money to buy thermal underwear and 'space blankets', and pass them on to one of the wonderful organisations in Edinburgh who go out and personally deliver these life saving items to rough sleepers. 

Please consider donating what you can. 

Warm clothing is not only often the difference between life and death but also impacts life choices in the short and long term. How can you possibly find the motivation and the physical energy to make positive changes in your life if you are literally freezing to death day and night? 

The target is small, the effort is minimal, but the impact is huge. 

Thank you everyone! X

Quick note- please don't be put off by the donation selections of 5's and 10's (it's a Crowdfunder thing...) - you can donate less or more by changing the amount :)
