Put these goodies on your Christmas shopping list and give to a loved one and to Home-Start at the same time!
Seasonal charity goodies are the gift that give twice; not only will the recipient be thrilled with their gift but a percentage of profits will be donated to help others in need. This year our fantastic corporate partners have pulled out all the stops and are selling some must-have items with donations going to Home-Start. So when shopping for family and friends, check out the superb range to choose from including festive tea towels, personalised pyjamas, Christmas jumpers and Christmas cards.
We are truly delighted that so many wonderful organisations are supporting us this year.
As Christmas approaches, we are also celebrating our second year of partnership with John Lewis and Waitrose on the #GiveALittleLove campaign.
The gifts that give twice:
White Stuff charity tea towels:
The design for White Stuff charity tea towels was inspired by children supported by Home-Start. We asked youngsters to share words that make them think of Christmas and the result is this fun and festive list of phrases including sparkles, reindeers, mince pies and love.
The tea towels remind us of the wonder of experiencing Christmas through the eyes of a child. They are available to buy online and in stores.
Share your festive wishes and support Home-Start’s work with families across the country by ordering a pack of our Christmas cards. There are four different designs to choose from the cards come in packs of ten.
Home-Start Christmas Cards are available via Cards For Good Causes, a not-for-profit organisation which gives 100% of their proceeds back to the charities involved.
Not sending Christmas cards this year? You can still support Home-Start by donating in lieu of sending cards – just visit our Christmas Cards Just Giving page and make a donation.
John Lewis Christmas Jumpers:
As featured in the famous John Lewis Christmas advert, this festive jumper is proving to be a big hit with shoppers. We also hope it will be a big hit for Home-Start, with 10% of sales donated to help families in need.
You can shop online and instore. Adult sizes are selling fast but children’s sizes are still available.
Studio family Christmas pyjamas:
Studio has launched its new range of personalised family Christmas pyjamas with 10% of the profits going to Home-Start. There’s even a little matching outfit for the furry members of the family. They’re selling fast but children’s sizes are still available.
John Lewis Gives A Little (more) Love this Christmas:
Last year John Lewis and Waitrose’s #GiveALittleLove campaign sparked the start of a wonderful long-term partnership with Home-Start. We’re delighted they will once again raise money for Home-Start over Christmas 2021 and beyond. To help support families in need, John Lewis and Waitrose are asking customers to donate online at waitrose.com/love or johnlewis.com/love and via QR codes displayed in stores.
This is part of the John Lewis Partnership’s pledge to give £1 million to charities this Christmas – including Home-Start – through their Give a Little Love campaign. Community funding will also be donated by stores, with both products and funds going to local Home-Starts and other local charities.
Alongside this, a special “Magical Christmas” will be delivered to 165 Home-Start families in the local areas around their John Lewis stores. The families, selected by a draw, will be gifted John Lewis and Waitrose products.
