After venturing out Christmas shopping the other day, I popped into Homesense. If you didn't know Homesense is a dream shop all year round, but especially at Christmas when it's filled with all the Christmas bits and bobs you could ever want. I'm not feeling overly festive this year, but my trip to Homesense definitely helped me out on that one..
Homesense have teamed up with Action for Children for the sixth year running to create an incredible Christmas campaign to raise money for those less fortunate. The idea is that you go in store, buy a bauble for £1 and then write a lovely Christmas message or your favourite childhood memory and hang it on a tree in store. All the donations go to Action for Children and it's local services.
This is definitely a campaign worth supporting, and look at all the decorations you can get for the little price tag of £1. It's safe to say I went a bit crazy on the decoration front this year, but it's all for a good cause so I feel a little less guilty about the money I've spent. Last year Homesense raised a total of £150,000 for Action for Children, can we beat that this year? If you live near a Homesense, I really encourage you to go and get involved in this campaign, and pick up some pretty baubles. They have a brilliant variety, but I can't promise you that you won't want to walk out with the whole store at the end of your trip...
Are you writing a message for Homesense and vulnerable children this year?
