This year has been like no other we have ever known. And if I have learnt one thing from it all, it is that we need nothing but love, health and happiness. That is why today, I Choose Love.

Choose Love does whatever it takes to provide refugees and displaced people with everything from lifesaving search and rescue boats to food and legal advice. They elevate the voices and visibility of refugees and galvanise public support for agile community organisations providing vital support to refugees along migration routes globally. They are powered by their own vision that takes on the message a world that chooses love and justice every day, for everyone. You can read their story here.

I decided to focus my donations on children, providing those in need with a few extra essentials that will go some way to making their winter a little more survivable. Keep scrolling for all of the info, and if you’re feeling inspired to donate yourself, the links are below.

Education for Children

More than half the world’s school-age refugee children are missing out on an education. This gift provides school bags, pencils, textbooks and access to education, helping children to fulfil their potential.

Warm Winter Clothes & Shoes

When living in sub-zero temperatures, thermal hats, gloves and proper shoes and thick socks don’t just help keep the head, hands and feet warm – they provide protection from frostbite and could save a life.

Child's Coat

Imagine a parent’s relief, knowing that they can keep their child warm. This gift provides an insulated winter coat to protect a child during the freezing winter months.

I want to bring my son up in a world where being kind is ingrained within, rather than being seen as going above and beyond. If we all do our bit, the world will be a kinder place. I hope you all have a wonderful festive break, and wishing you all a happy and healthy 2021.
