Making people’s Christmas Day happier

We Make Good Happen

“One elderly woman burst into tears when she was given the treat bag. She said it was the only present she’d received that Christmas.” 

This year with We Make Good Happen we’re helping to make Christmas Day a little bit happier for 2 groups of people:

1) Making treat bags for elderly people who are alone on Xmas day 
(which we did last year for the Maes y Coed Community Centre who very graciously open their doors on Xmas day )

It would be amazing if anyone would like to donate:

2) There will be around 1,400 individuals staying on a mental health ward, in Wales, over Christmas.
You can help brighten the day for 22 individuals based on a ward by donating a gift.

Big thanks!
Matt & #WeMakeGoodHappen team

FYI: If anyone wants to drop off luxury items for either appeals you can here until 5pm Friday 22nd Dec. (and just hand to reception) or PM me Matt Callanan

100 Cards 4 Good

100 Cards 4 Good // 100Cards4Good - We Make Good Happen

Do you know of someone who’s alone at Christmas? Do you know of an elderly person who’s family lives away?

I bought 100 Christmas cards from #Homeless charity The Wallich (which were created by ace people I Loves the Diff ) and sending out/delivering all 100 of these cards to someone who might want to be cheered up a little bit, so I can help let them know they’re not alone.

I’m hand writing each one and will create a warm message for each one inside.

So far cards are going to elderly residents in care homes that don’t have any family, through to refugees who I’m helping to make feel welcome in our country.

If you know someone who might want a card do get in touch.

Merry Christmas!

Russell Howard TV Show – Tenner4Good

Amazingly Russell Howard liked the Tenner4Good idea and wanted to do it himself on his TV show.

Being a fellow Bristolian and big fan of this awesome comedian/TV presenter and all round nice guy this was a great honour.

He hid 100 £10s around the place with the same 2 rules:

  1. Don’t spend it on yourself
  2. Do some Good with it

He also encouraged people to use their own tenners and created his own Tenner4Good template for people to download.
