Our chosen charity: Samaritans
Covid has shaken all of our lives and most of us are facing challenging times because of it. But who do you turn to when you can’t cope anymore? When you need help? Emotional support? When just someone listening would make the difference between you getting through that day, or not?
Samaritans are a team of carefully trained volunteers who are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. That’s incredible, right? Whatever you’re going through, a Samaritan will face it with you. They provide a safe place for anyone struggling to cope, whoever they are, however they feel, whatever life has done to them.
Every seven seconds someone calls Samaritans because they are in desperate need. 7 Seconds is probably less than the time it has taken you to read this.
For more information please visit www.samaritans.org
The cost of a call for help every month from someone struggling to cope. This could be someone’s mum or dad, someone’s child, someone’s grandparent. It could be you.
Could help recruit and train a volunteer to listen to around 12 people in need each day
Let’s do the run up to Christmas a little differently this year.
Together we can do this!
Do I have to join the FB group?
No, only if you want to, it is optional. The only thing is that this is the only place where you get access to the interviews and the fun inspirational live events – they will not be available anywhere else. Sorry!
What if I sign up late, will I still get the whole advent calendar?
You will get the daily dose of starting from the date you sign up. So the sooner you get in there, the more you will benefit!
Why is the calendar not free this year?
The HAC has been free for the last 2 years. But I am sure you will agree that this has been an extraordinary year and charities who do important work, like Samaritans, have not been able to do their usual fund raising. And we need these services! So this is your chance to make a real difference, share the love and get healthy all the same time.
Can I give more than £5?
Yes, the £5 is the minimum donation. This is the equivalent of a couple of cups of coffee!! So please be generous, and help make a difference.
Can I share my Healthy Advent Calendar with others?
Well, yes you could, but in the spirit of generosity and community we ask that you invite your friends, colleagues, family members, to sign up in their own right. It’s only fair?
Are you getting any money from this?
No. As I said, every single penny you donate will go via ‘Just Giving’ directly to the Charity.
All the guest speakers are giving their time for free and here at Dr Margriet Health we are Funding all of the calendar set up costs. This is our way of ‘ paying it forward’ and helping you to get healthy and well at the same time.
