It’s great when big name brands and charities get together to work for a good cause. Children’s charity Action for Children has teamed up with homeware retailer, HomeSense, for the sixth consecutive year to raise money for Action for Children this Christmas.
Whenever you go to HomeSense up to Christmas you are able to buy a Christmas bauble for just £1, write a festive message on it and then hang it on a special HomeSense Christmas tree. All proceeds from this bauble donations will go to Action for Children and its local services.
Sarah Cook, Director of Fundraising at Action for Children, said: “We have been delivering our ‘Hang a Bauble’ campaign in partnership with HomeSense for the last six years, during which time it has been an overwhelming success. Last year through our campaign, HomeSense raised more than £150,000 for Action for Children, enabling us to reach even more vulnerable children and young people across the UK. We are extremely grateful for the incredible support shown by HomeSense stores and customers”.
I love HomeSense and love it when giving to charity is this easy – and fun! Next time I’m in store I’ll be buying a bauble or two – a great way of giving to charity and getting into the festive spirit at the same time!
