Your gift this Christmas, will help so many others like Pádraig
This time of year, when the air gets colder and everyone’s getting cozy, some folks like Pádraig are out there feeling lonelier than ever. Imagine being all alone when the whole world seems to be celebrating together.
“Being homeless at Christmas is horrible. All the windows are lit up but you’re sat on the pavement, in the dark, shivering. You can’t go home like everyone else. Look at the state of me. I’ve got a duvet and a sleeping bag and that’s all I have in the world. It’s embarrassing walking around like this.” – Pádraig, MQI Client
Pádraig’s been through a lot. He used to have a job, a place to call home. But life threw some tough punches, and now he’s left without either. He’s not the only one – there are many like him, struggling to find a safe place, even a warm shower.
Think about it: while most of us are gathered around the table, some people don’t even have a place to sit. It’s tough any time of year, but especially during Christmas when memories of better times can make things hurt even more.
Your generosity can change things. Your gift means more than just a hot meal or a clean bed. It’s a chance to show someone like Pádraig that they matter, that they’re not forgotten. It’s about offering hope and a sense of belonging during this tough time.
