Stars including Michael Owen, Leona Lewis and David Harewood have pledged their support to Action for Children’s Christmas Appeal, asking their Twitter followers to donate to the cause via text.
Jessica Hynes has also appeared on The One Show to discuss her association with the charity, which helps vulnerable children in the UK.
Action for Children has issued a Christmas appeal in response to their contacts with an an increasing number of parents who are struggling to feed their children.
The appeal asks for a donation of £10 which “could pay for a week of hot meals for a hungry child”.
The message works well by contrasting a decorated Christmas table, laid out with plenty of food to go round, with the same table as all the food and decorations are removed, leaving it empty.
Donating to Action for Children will help make a difference to the UK’s most vulnerable and neglected children today. Action for Children supports and speaks out for the UK’s most vulnerable and neglected children and young people, for as long as it takes to make a difference in their lives.
