WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT THIS CHRISTMAS:

There are lots of different ways you can help make a Christmas to remember for our vulnerable children and young people

MAKE A DONATION:

This year we are having to cope with the increasing number of children who live in such abject poverty that without us they would have no warm clothes, and no food or presents at Christmas. Any contribution you can make to ourChristmas Appealwill help our desperate race to raise enough money to keep our emergency safeguarding helpline open for 24 hours a day over the Christmas period. We need to provide 24 hour support to cope with the high level of distress calls we receive from the most vulnerable of our children and you can help us to make sure no one feels abandoned.

TAKE PART IN ICAP's CHARITY DAY:

Kids Company is thrilled to announce that we have been selected to be part of ICAP's Charity Day on Wednesday 5th December 2012.

On this one day, ICAP, the world's largest inter dealer broker, gives away 100% of its revenues and commissions to its chosen charities. The money raised on the day will generate desperately needed funds to support the critical work of our safeguarding department and our Colour a Child's Life' programme.

We are hoping that together we can help make ICAP Charity Day's 20th year the best yet!

DO YOUR CHRISTMAS SHOPPING:

If you like your Christmas gifts with a side of good deed, our partnerships with some fantastic brands such as Selfridges, Folli Follie, Liberty, eBay and Rococo could be just the thing you're looking for.

At SELFRIDGES you can buy a Kids Company t-shirt designed by iconic fashion photographer Bruce Weber, which is featured in their Christmas window display as well as the Selfridges Christmas campaign directed by Weber himself. All proceeds will come to Kids Company.

You can also pick up our limited edition sterling silver bracelets bearing Kids Company's motto Love is all it takes, available exclusively in Selfridges, and read more about the store's wonderful support here.

The global luxury jewellery brand FOLLI FOLLIE have reworked their flagship Heart4Heart range with a selection of pieces, from watches to necklaces, now being sold in Kids Company pink. 25% of all sales will come directly to Kids Company and further items will be added to the collection in coming weeks.

LIBERTY LONDON is now stocking Kids Company's Hoods That Hug, designed by our in-house fashion label Bare Thread. The hoods, specially designed for the babies and children in your lives, are 45 and 50% of the proceeds come to Kids Company.

You can purchase exclusive Kids Company Christmas cards in the Liberty store, designed by our young people using Liberty Print off-cuts. Liberty are also selling a Kids Company charity t-shirt designed by one of our young people, for 19.95, with 100% of sales going towards our vital work. You can read more about our partnership here.

eBay are generously supporting us through their Checkout for Charity initiative. When you're filling up your shopping basket and ticking items off your Christmas list, just type in Kids Company' to add a little extra for our children. Click on the Donate Now tab here to make sure you end up on Santa's Nice list and spread some Christmas cheer to those who need it most. The money donated will come directly to our Christmas campaign.

If you're stuck on inspiration for stocking fillers, luxury chocolatier ROCOCO is selling their specially created Love Bug Bar in aid of Kids Company. The bar comes in five designs, all produced by one of our young people, and are available at any of the Rococo stores.

IN THE PRESS:

Paul Hood, digital director of London24, will be taking part in next week's Lisbon Marathon in aid of Kids Company. The race takes place on December 9th and Paul is hoping to raise 2,000 for our Christmas campaign. You can read more about his challenge here good luck Paul!

We were so excited this month when Coldplay and Paris announced an exhibition of original Mylo Xyloto artwork to raise funds for Kids Company.The sale of posters, prints and original paintings has provided a vital lifeline for our children as the economic crisis continues to bite. You can read more about the fantastic exhibition here.

AND FINALLY:

After her amazing performance at the SAMSUNG Olympic Gala Dinner in aid of Kids Company, Natalie Mitchell, a young mother of two supported by Kids Company, has been asked to perform at Samsung House. Samsung employees and their families have been collecting presents to donate to the Kids Company Christmas Day and Natalie will be singing as part of the company's present wrapping day. Thank you so much to everyone at Samsung for continuing to give our young people these fantastic opportunities to showcase their talents!
