Goods For Good is delighted to announce that, for the second consecutive year, we are the recipients of support from Aviva’s Community Fund. This partnership brings an incredible opportunity to amplify the impact of our Twelve Gifts of Kindness Winter Appeal throughout the month of December.
We believe that in someone's hour of need, your support can be the most powerful force for positive change. While this Winter we continue our commitment to delivering everyday essentials such as nappies, period products, toiletries, warm coats, and clothing, our #TwelveGiftOfKindness Winter Appeal introduces the gifts that go beyond the material. When you donate £10 you’re not just helping us deliver a 'gift for good' containing crucial items such as blankets, bedding, and essential clothing and footwear, you’re also delivering an invaluable gift for those who need it most, providing comfort, hope, and a renewed sense of purpose.
