£22 could help buy children a new school uniform.

Donate an amount of your choice to support a homeless child this Christmas.

Do something to give homeless children across Scotland a Christmas to remember, and become a Social Media Santa.

Social Media Santa gifts should be sent or dropped in to our Edinburgh Community Hub (address below).

Share the Social Media Santa love – download one of our graphics or take a photo of your gift and share on social media using the hashtag #socialmediasanta.

Please send us gifts unwrapped as we need to see the gifts so we can make sure everyone is given a gift that’s right for them. We’d also appreciate if you could include your contact details so that we can say thanks for getting involved.

So we can distribute before Christmas, please make sure your gifts arrive with us between: 13th November - 11th December 2017 in order to get them wrapped and delivered in time for Christmas.

Please send gifts unwrapped to:

Shelter Scotland
Scotiabank House
6 South Charlotte Street

In the event that we receive more gifts than children in our services, any excess will be distributed through our partners in Scotland also supporting vulnerable children.
