There are so many ways you can Make it Crisis this Christmas

Office party in December? Great. A get-together with friends in the New Year? Perfect. Whether it’s a cake sale, carol concert or Christmas lunch, you can turn it into a festive fundraiser. Here are a few ideas to get you started...

Nativity staging

Ask your audience to chip in to support Crisis' life-changing year-round services.

Cake baking

Bake or bring delicious Christmas treats to sell - with all proceeds to help Crisis.

Karaoke singing

Just have some fun, raise much-needed money and help more people leave homelessness behind for good.

Dinner partying

Gather your nearest and dearest for Christmas and help raise funds to reserve places at Crisis this Christmas.

Christmas quizzing

And the answer is… Get together for a festive quiz at your school, office, or with your friends and family.

Elf dancing

Hold a Christmas dance-off and sell tickets to raise money for Crisis.

Carol singing

Sing your hearts out and take a collection to help people who are homeless this Christmas.

Goal scoring

How about a 5-a-side football or netball tournament? Organise sponsorship and ask spectators to donate for every time you score a goal.

Christmas lunching

Turn your school or office Christmas lunch into a fundraiser to help people out of homelessness.

“This year will be an incredible new start.”

Ella lived a full life, working at a newspaper, singing at church and teaching children at weekends. But then a serious conflict with her family left her with nowhere to go. 
 
When her money ran out, she stayed in spare rooms and on floors, even on buses and the underground: “That’s when I realised I was homeless.” 

Being homeless left Ella feeling “broken”. But then a passer-by put her in touch with Crisis.

At one of our Christmas centres she received a warm welcome, fresh new clothes, and took part in arts and crafts. With Crisis’ help, she’s found a new flat and is opening an online shop selling custom-made clothing.

Make it Crisis this Christmas and every £28.87 you raise could give advice, food and safety, plus a whole new start to someone like Ella.

Every £28.87 you raise could reserve a place at Crisis for someone who’s homeless this Christmas

At Christmas centres across Great Britain, we’ll be offering food, clothing and support with health, housing and employment. Each place you reserve can help someone to leave homelessness behind and begin rebuilding their life this Christmas.
