LOVE IN A BOX https://www.facebook.com/groups/loveinabox1/

The purpose of my page is to ask people who can to "pay it forward" and hopefully help another person by doing so. As you know there are increasing instances of childhood poverty in Scotland with 43% of children in North East Glasgow alone living in poverty. 1 in 3 children in this area are living in poverty though 6 out of 10 households have parents who are in employment.   The scary thing is that The Institute for Fiscal Studies estimates that child poverty will increase by 400,000 by 2016 and 800,000 by 2020. It is a dreadful state of affairs and breaks my heart to think that children in our very prosperous and wealthy country are going to bed hungry or that they will wake on Xmas morning to little or nothing. It's simply not good enough. What I am asking is that you gather a few items, pop them in a gift wrapped shoebox or gift bag and let me know when you've done this. I will arrange to uplift and will have dates and venues for when I'll also be in Glasgow for anyone wishing to contribute. I've put a wee list on LOVE IN A BOX of suggestions but feel free to use your creativity or indeed make something if you're feeling artistic. Many thanks in advance for your love/help. Please PAY IT FORWARD. xxxx
