2020 Christmas Appeal
08 December 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has really brought home the urgency of our work.
We know that children within institutions, many of whom suffer from serious medical conditions, are extremely vulnerable to this virus. We also know that increasing numbers of parents are driven by deepening poverty, isolation and ill-health to abandon their children.
As we approach Christmas this year, help us offer hope to the millions of vulnerable children who are without families at this time. While we may find a way to forget the COVID-19 pandemic for a few happy hours, they will be feeling its effect more than ever.
Following are three ways you can respond to our Christmas Appeal:
1. A Royal Christmas - in your own home!
We may not be able to gather together for Christmas this year, but Care for Children is bringing our annual Christmas Gala Dinner to you!
We have a completely exclusive video package for you to share with your family and friends for a Christmas-themed dinner, including a personal greeting from His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent, filmed from his private residence in Kensington Palace, London.
The package also includes personal messages from Bear Grylls and Francis Chan, menu suggestions with recipes inspired by our project countries, Christmas music videos, a thank you video from Robert Glover, and the chance to receive a Buckingham Palace Christmas Hamper. Find out all the details here.

2. 'As Many As The Stars' book sale
  • "I read this book in 24 hrs, I simply couldn't put it down!" (Amazon)
  • "This is an inspiring read - breath-taking in fact" (Amazon)
In October this year, Care for Children's Founder & Executive Director, Robert Glover released his book 'As Many As The Stars'. Published by Hodder & Stoughton, it shares his and his family's remarkable personal journey that led to the launch of Care for Children in China, and eventually over one million orphans and vulnerable children placed in families. Read more about the book here.
We are offering a 50% sale of 10 books for £60 (US$ 80) - all your Christmas presents in one go! This offer is limited to 1,000 books, and all proceeds go to Care for Children. Please email Carolyn.
