Thanks to all the social media santas
Well it seems a fair few of you got in to the Christmas spirit and read my blog post about Shelter Scotland’s Blantyre project. Over 20 gifts were received just in time for Christmas, staff at the service had feared they would not be able to provide a gift for every child.
Linda Dickson, Service Manager at Shelter Scotland’s Support Service South Lanarkshire, said:
“We are overwhelmed by the level of support we have received and it just goes to show the positive impact social media can have. Homelessness can have a devastating effect on children’s lives and Christmas can be a particularly difficult time for them and their families.
On behalf of everyone at Shelter Scotland I would like to send a heartfelt thank you to those who donated a gift and made Christmas Day a very special time for the families and children we work with.”
Social media at its best! Thanks again Ross!
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!
