Christmas Appeal 2022

We’re launching our Christmas Appeal for 2022 and need your help.

Our vital services work every day of the year in local communities across the country to support vulnerable people in crisis. We provide healthcare, emergency shelter, food, safety, security, and essential advice.

Last year, we supported over 90,000 people and an individual accesses one of our services every five minutes.

The festive season is no different.

It will come as no surprise that winter is one of the most challenging times for many of the people we support as they cope with complex health needs, poverty, homelessness, loneliness, and isolation.

This, combined with the current cost of living crisis, means we need your help more than ever.

That’s why we’re asking you to support our work this winter by donating to our Christmas appeal.

Your kind donation will ensure we are always able to provide urgent interventions for people when they need it most.

How to make a donation

If you would like to donate through a text on your phone, you can do so by texting HKXMAS followed by your donation amount (for example, HKXMAS 20 to give £20) to 70460.

Choosing this option will allow you to donate any amount between £1 – £20.

If you would like to give more, you can send multiple texts, or donate through our JustGiving page.

Texts will cost the donation amount plus one standard network rate message. You’ll be opting into hearing about Humankind news in the future via telephone and SMS. If you would like to donate, but do not wish to hear more from us, please text HKXMASNOINFO instead, followed by your donation amount.

A donation to our Christmas Appeal will go directly to help those most in need or at risk of harm. Please note, the following donation guides are intended as examples of our work only, and your donation may also be used in other ways to help the people we support.

  • £10 could allow us to provide a pack of essential items, including personal hygiene and sanitary products, to someone sleeping on the streets.
  • £20 could contribute towards our national service user fund, providing emergency funding for people in extreme hardship.
  • £50 could completely transform Christmas for a family in poverty, providing basic food and shelter.

From everyone at Humankind, thank you for your kindness this Christmas.
