Secret Santa: give a gift with meaning this Black Friday

Black Friday is usually associated with busy shops and long queues, as people seek out the best Christmas deals. But why not avoid the rush this year –  and put your money towards a gift that will make a difference?

This year, as part of our Secret Santa campaign, we’re offering the option of a virtual gift: you donate on behalf of a friend or family member to make that person a Secret Santa for a vulnerable child. You’ll be helping children across the UK who would otherwise go without, and giving a gift with meaning at the same time.

Just choose one of the gift options for how your money can help (this might be a hot meal for a child or winter clothes to keep them warm in the cold winter months, for example), then personalise your certificate to send to your chosen Santa. 

Virtual gifting is one way to give a more consciously during the festive season. It gives vulnerable children items they would otherwise go without, and it’s also good for the environment – reducing waste (packaging), and cutting back on your carbon footprint (you can do it at home). 

Do Black Friday differently this year and make Christmas extra special for vulnerable children in the UK.
