Giving Tuesday: Ferry Project’s Helping Hand Campaign

You have heard of Black Friday, and you have propable heard of Cyber Monday. But did you know about Givng Tuesday that happens just afterwards? Each year on Giving Tuesday (28th November) people all over the world donate to charity. For this year's Giving Tuesday, Ferry Project is launching their Helping Hand campaign, running from today  up until Christmas, encouraging donations that would go to their Hardship Fund.

Giving Tuesday is a global movement that encourages people to donate what they can to charities all over the world. Whether it’s time, money, clothes, food, or something else, Giving Tuesday is an opportunity for people to do what they can to support charities important to them. So whether you’re local to Wisbech or just want to support a homeless charity, Ferry Project would be grateful for your donation to their Hardship Fund.

The Hardship Fund is for clients who require help buying something that they need. It does not fund the running costs of the charity; rather acts as a cash fund for clients to use directly. In the past, clients have used it to help them buy something they need for their daily lives, such as reading glasses, clothing, and even a bike to allow one client to get themselves to their new job. As the festive season approaches, those clients with families and young children can use the fund to buy christmas presents.

As a homeless charity, Ferry Project aims not just to provide accommodation, but support and help to build up client’s confidence and practical skills, allowing them to move on to independent living again. The Hardship Fund is an important part of that, as it not only helps to fix practical issues the clients may be facing (such as not having the correct prescription of glasses), but also to give clients that little bit more confidence and freedom. Although small, these little actions like buying christmas presents can help clients to build back their self-esteem. Buying a bike gives a client the freedom to transport themselves to work and other places, allowing them to begin managing their lives again.

So this year, Ferry Project asks you to donate and to help a client start to get their life back on track. To donate, find the bank account details below and please use the reference ‘Helping Hand’ to make sure your money goes to the right place.
