The homelessness charity Social-Bite has launched a festively themed campaign that’s aiming to help thousands of people across four Scottish cities over the next few weeks.
Upwards of 300,000 gifts of hot meals and other essentials are planned to be distributed by the charity in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee.
Social-Bite started out as a café venture in Edinburgh in 2012 and has since established itself as a prominent campaign organisation working in support of homeless people throughout Scotland and beyond.
The charity’s Christmas campaign has been dubbed the Festival of Kindness, with the goal being to provide essential support for people who don’t have anywhere to live or who are stuck in emergency accommodation on a temporary basis this winter.
Donations are now being taken at the organisation’s website, with £5 being enough to buy a homeless person a Christmas dinner and £20 potentially enough to buy someone a bed for a night.
Social-Bite’s co-founder Josh Littlejohn has said: “This Christmas, many of us will be able to reunite with family and friends to celebrate after so many restrictions.
“But for homeless people and families, the pandemic has made their situation particularly desperate.
“Thousands of people all over the UK will spend Christmas on the streets – cold, hungry and lonely, without a family to go to.”
The charity will have a physical presence in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee over the festive period in the shape of what it is calling its ‘trees of kindness’.
Those trees will be located at City Square in Aberdeen, St Andrew Square in Edinburgh, Vinicombe Street in Glasgow and outside the V&A museum in Dundee.
“Our festival of kindness campaign aims to spread some festive cheer,” Mr Littlejohn explained.
“In a world where you can be anything, we’re urging people to be kind and buy or donate a little extra to help those who need it most – even the smallest of gifts will make a huge difference.”
