A few weeks ago an email came in asking me to select a charity to receive £50 from Happy Badger. There are *so* many charities out there and it’s hard to pick one to focus your attention on as they’re all worthy of money that they so desperately need.
I took a while to think about it, I asked twitter what they thought, but in the end I went with Shelter. There is never a ‘nice’ time to be homeless, but with winter coming up, and knowing the winters we’ve been having, I can’t imagine anything worse than being on the street in freezing cold temperatures. Apart from the weather, the loneliness & being constantly scared and tired must be more than some people can deal with. There are so many people and reasons for the massive increase in homelessness but charity work goes someway to help.
Any little bit of money that can go towards helping even just one person have a warm bed and some decent food is welcome & I hope that the donation from Happy Badger can do that.
