Our Stocking Project is Back: Share Some Holiday Love with a Child Affected by Poverty

Aug 23, 2021 | Giving Back, Reason to Be

The days are getting shorter and children are heading back to school. For all of us at Be Leadership, it’s time to start thinking about the holidays.

Many of us have a long list of gifts to buy for family and friends for the holiday season. At Be Leadership, our shopping list extends to 250 children from our local area who are affected by poverty. If you’d like to get involved, we welcome your support.

We are passionate about creating a better world through the development of social leaders. To support this, we have developed the Beautiful World Campaign, whose goal is to create connections between communities, organizations and individuals for greater impact. For the third year, we are sponsoring the Stuff a Stocking project to bring the magic of the holidays to children around the world. This project provides stockings filled with books, toys, crafts, and hygiene products to children whose families are facing hardship.

This year, we are partnering with the Runnymede Foodbank, a foodbank that serves families local to our headquarters in Surrey, England. Each year, Runnymede Foodbank delivers Christmas Hampers to people in crisis across the Borough. In 2020, the Foodbank supported 220 families. We are proud to partner with the Foodbank to ensure the children from these families receive a stocking alongside this gift of food.

If you are interested in supporting this project or learning more please get in touch today! If you would like to learn more about Runnymede Foodbank and their incredible work to eradicate food poverty please visit their website.

The Beautiful World Campaign creates positive connections between communities, purpose-driven organizations and individuals. We work with selected people and organizations to establish meaningful connections, then support these relationships through clear contracting between the parties, through coaching, specialized training or consulting services from experienced members of the Be Leadership team, and through selected financial support.
