Make it Crisis this Christmas FAQs

Make it Crisis this Christmas is a way of coming together with family and friends to celebrate Christmas whilst raising money to help end homelessness. If you already have a favourite way of celebrating Christmas planned or one in mind, then that’s great! You can sign up for your Make it Crisis this Christmas fundraising pack which has loads of materials to help you plan your event.

If you haven’t got anything planned and need some event inspiration, we have lots of ideas for fun things you can do to help raise money to support homeless people out of homelessness. You can find our list of suggestions for Christmas celebrations here and request a Make it Crisis this Christmas kit to help start your event planning!

No there is no deadline to sign up! You can sign up for Make it Crisis this Christmas by registering for a fundraising pack anytime throughout November and December.

You can hold your Make it Crisis whenever you like over the festive period! We know that everyone likes to celebrate Christmas at different times so you can pick whichever date works best for you to hold your event.

We would love it if you could use whatever event you’re planning to hold over Christmas as a Crisis fundraiser and help us welcome more guests to Crisis at Christmas. Some ideas for celebrations are

  • Christmas quiz
  • Christmas jumper day
  • Christmas dinner
  • Festive stall
  • Mince pie bake off
  • School concert
  • And loads more!

We’ve put together a Make it Crisis this Christmas pack which has loads of materials to help you plan your event, spread the word and decorate wherever you choose to hold it.

That’s not a problem! You can hold whatever event you would like over Christmas – you can be as inventive as you like!

There’s lots of ways you can make any event into a fundraiser. You could charge people attending a small amount as a donation to Crisis. Or make some sweet treats to sell on the day. There’s also ideas for games like sweepstakes in the Make it Crisis this Christmas pack to help you raise even more!

It is £26.08 to reserve a place at Crisis at Christmas. This will provide our guests with a warm welcome, nutritious food, a bed for the night if needed, health checks and treatments from doctors, advice on housing and support to help them out of homelessness for good.

Crisis at Christmas is the first step out of homelessness. The funds you raise will enable us to welcome more guests to our life-changing event. In 13 Crisis at Christmas centres our guests will receive Christmas dinner, fresh clothes, health checks, housing advice and access to Crisis' year-round services for support to leave homelessness behind in the year ahead.

We welcome thousands of homeless guests over the festive period and we can only do this thanks to our amazing supporters. You can find out more about Crisis at Christmas here
