Christmas with Kindness

Christmas with Kindness

The most needed gifts this Christmas

Across the country, households and local communities alike are all facing a very different Christmas this year. At In Kind Direct we always see a huge increase in demand at Christmas time and this looks set to be even bigger this year – with many increasingly worried about simply affording basics. As restrictions on being with loved ones and financial uncertainty take their toll, the emphasis on maintaining traditions, building memories and finding new ways of togetherness will have a greater significance.  

Our Christmas with Kindness campaign launches with a range of essential products, from basics such as hand wash and feminine hygiene products, to important feel good gifts like toys and fragrance, we are committed to getting the most needed products to everyone who needs them. Read our press release and Gift Guide of the most needed gifts this Christmas.

This Christmas we all need a little kindness and our campaign wouldn’t be possible without the ongoing support from so many of our generous corporate partners. Working together with well-known brands and local charities, we can get life’s essentials to twice as many people this season, helping our charity network to help those that rely on them - giving dignity, self-esteem and safety.

Give kindness this Christmas.

will use products from us to keep people clean and safe. That means more cleaning, laundry and hygiene supplies. This is based on our July 2020 impact survey, which received 639 responses.

“Access to feminine hygiene products has been especially important for one of our users in particular who was housebound because of bowel and bladder issues.  She couldn't afford the protection she needed - and we couldn't afford it either until they became available on In Kind Direct - an absolute godsend!  it has transformed her life!”
- Mayfield and Easthouses Development Trust, Scotland

 

“We received our order with great joy because it contained the antibacterial Carex hand wash we were so looking forward to receive. These items are used in our care packages of essential products being distributed to our service users who are vulnerable and house bound.”
