One of my favourite blogs has kicked off its annual WANA (we are not assholes) campaign. It all takes place in the comment feed of a blog post. Families who are in need this Christmas post a comment about their situation. Some need food, others need clothes and some just want to be able to bring a little Christmas cheer to their kids.
The internet community then responds to any of the comments that they can help out with. No pretence, no commercial advertising, just people in need and people wanting to help.
Not going to lie, I was in tears while reading some of these comments. I am skint at the moment so can’t send anything useful, but hopefully my runawaykiwi pendants can bring a few smiles on Christmas day.
