Give to those who have nothing this Christmas with Solace Women’s Aid

This year has been an odd year for me. There has been a lot of ups and downs, but the downs have been a bit more than normal for some weird reason. I am glad the year is almost over. I am looking forward to the Christmas break and starting 2020 from a clean slate. It is so easy to get carried away this season with feeling Christmassy. There are presents to buy and wrap, decorations to put up and shopping to do, it can be too easy to stay focused on ourselves and what we need.

Give to those who have nothing this Christmas

This year and going forward, I am doing it differently. I am giving the little I have to those who have nothing this Christmas. It is surprising to know how many people go without day after day in one of the richest countries in the world. Homelessness is rising day after day, women and children are fleeing their homes due to domestic violence. These people have nothing this Christmas. Imagine if we all gave the little we had to a charity of our choice. That would put smiles on so many faces.

Solace Womens Aid

The charity of my choice this Christmas is Solace Womens Aid (and this is not an ad). The charity focuses on supporting women and children fleeing domestic abuse in London. I have no ties with this charity. I just think they are doing a great job and I felt like supporting the team through a donation and a blog post. Domestic violence is a major issue for the most vulnerable in the society and it breaks my heart to hear about women and children being forced to leave their home and belongings to be away from male abuse. These women and children usually leave with little or nothing, to start all over again. The fear of the unknown means many women would rather stay in abusive environments than seek refuge elsewhere. Which is why charities like Solace Womens Aid is amazing and your donations can help them do more.

Every month, I plan to donate to a new charity and share a blog post about the charity as well. I hope we all have an amazing time getting ready for the big day this month, and remember those who have nothing this season.

Thanks for reading and donating. Have a great week.

  1. Well done! Totally stoked to read your blog on this. I am a survivor from my 1at marriage. My late father was also violent.

    Though it’s been 20 years since I left I still live with the aftermath. You dont get over it. You just learn to live with it and develop various dealing strategies.

    My 2nd husband as you know, who passed away last year, was and is a massive part of my healing and recovery. We were so blessed to have met and find what real healthy love is

    Womens Aid were our lifesaver. I donate monthly to them by D.D. I always donate an extra Christmas one off too

    Thank you for bringing this subject to the Christmas table. Domestic abuse gets worse at this time of the year

    • Thanks for sharing your story Carol. You came out of the experience stronger for sure. Good you support Women’s Aid Charity. Domestic abuse is so rampant these days. A lot more needs to be said and done about it.

Speak your heart, don't bite your tongue!
