Blog: Be a #SocialMediaSanta and give a homeless child a Christmas to remember
There are over 5,000 reasons stopping us from celebrating this year – because that’s the number of children in Scotland that will spend this Christmas without a permanent home of their own.
Shelter Scotland have hundreds of boys and girls – aged from 6 months to 16 years – supported by our services, who might not get a present on Christmas morning. You can give a homeless child a Christmas to remember, by becoming a Social Media Santa.
Social Media Santa is the brainchild of our pal Ross McCulloch, Director of Third Sector Lab – a specialist digital agency working with charities and social enterprises. For the past 5 years, through the generosity of this initiative, you have managed to give a happy Christmas to children across our projects in Glasgow, South Lanarkshire, Dumfries, Dundee and Renfrewshire
If you haven’t Santa’d in previous years and you want to, this is how it works.
Send your gift unwrapped to:
6 South Charlotte Street,
We will be accepting gifts from today 17th November – 9th December. Please ensure presents reach us by Friday 9th December, to give us time to distribute them. Thank you!
