Mission Christmas: Cash for Kids Volunteering
18th December 2023
On December 8th, 2023, we witnessed the true spirit of giving as WAVE’s incredible team of volunteers, comprising Sam Cameron, Caitlin Earle, and Jack Brockbank, dedicated their time to support the Cash for Kids charity. Their tireless efforts at the Store Room in Leeds, brought joy and hope to countless children in need this Christmas season.
Cash for Kids is a grant-giving charity that aims to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK, especially those affected by poverty, illness, neglect, or who have additional needs. Their mission is to ensure that all children can express their individuality, achieve their potential, and live life to the full. By working with grass-roots organisations, Cash for Kids provides direct support to families who often have nowhere else to turn.
The volunteering event, aptly named “Mission Christmas,” saw the collaboration of Sam, Caitlin, Jack, and other volunteers along with the Cash for Kids team. Together, they embarked on the vital task of sorting through generous donations of Christmas gifts. With meticulous care and unwavering dedication, they ensured that each present was packed and ready to reach the children who need them the most.
What makes this initiative truly remarkable is Cash for Kids’ exceptional track record. In 2022 alone, they collectively raised an awe-inspiring £20.4 million nationwide, supporting a remarkable 489,409 children. These funds directly enable Cash for Kids to make a significant impact, bringing smiles and light into the lives of those who need it most.
The efforts of Sam, Caitlin, and Jack have not only contributed to this extraordinary cause but have also help to support the local community in Leeds. Their selflessness and compassion served as a beacon of hope, inspiring others to join the mission and spread joy in their own communities.
We wholeheartedly commend the outstanding work carried out by Cash for Kids, a charity that passionately reinforces the importance of every child’s happiness, well-being, and development. Their commitment to making a real difference is evident in their continued support for local communities and families facing adversity.
Let us come together to celebrate Sam, Caitlin, and Jack for their remarkable contribution to Cash for Kids’ mission. Their dedication has undoubtedly left an indelible mark on the lives of those they’ve touched, serving as an inspiration for us all to make a positive impact in our own communities.
