As proud Londoners, this Christmas we want to give back to our city. To the people who also call this city their home, but don't have the most simple basics we often take for granted. We want to try and give the homeless in London a reason to smile, by putting together a small box of essentials that may help them through a cold wintery night, or at least bring them a little warmth.
Each box will contain key essentials, ordered online, then packed and distributed by our team. We will search the streets of Central London for the homeless, and directly hand them each a box.
FIRST RUN - 6th of December
We have already self-funded our first run and will deliver 20 boxes to the homeless. We will take photos and share the journey on our instagram account: @secretbrunch hoping to inspire more.
SECOND RUN - 20th of December
We would love your help with funding our second run. The deadline for donations is set to 11th of December, when we must place our order in order for the essentials to arrive on time.
1 x cardboard box, 1 x red decorative ribbon, 1 x warm beanie hat, 1 x pair of gloves, 1 x pair of thermal socks, 1 x thermos flask, 10 x tea bags, 1 x Vaseline lip therapy, 1 x pack of tissues, 1 x toothbrush containing toothpaste, 1 x pack of sanitary towels (for ladies) 1 x Christmas card, 1 x decorative craft card and wax stamp, and 1 x Key information for day centres and medical services.
Each box costs roughly £8.22. We will aim to raise enough money to create 250 boxes. All monies raised will be going to the homeless. We will also be volunteering our time to pack all boxes and deliver them directly to the homeless, and we will take on any costs associated with marketing this campaign.
The real challenge is the distribution of these boxes. Finding the homeless and ensuring that we hand each box directly to them. So in addition to your financial support we would welcome anybody wishing to volunteer their time to help us with delivering these boxes on 20th of December. Please message us on faceboook or instagram @secretbrunch
