The charity, Cash for Kids, is run in 22 locations in the UK. They work with local communities to look after the welfare of the young people in their community. These children may be underprivileged, have poor health, experienced neglect or abuse, have special needs, or disabled. The charity aims to take care of their needs and to give children the opportunity to live a full life.
Cash for Kids is the charity for Northsound in Aberdeen and they promote the charity on the radio to encourage people to donate and raise awareness of the charity. Northsound organises events for schools, companies and individuals to get involved in fundraising and helping their own community. The money raised goes towards buying equipment for children to give them a better quality life.
Mission Christmas has been set up to give disadvantaged kids a Christmas present. Donators buy an extra present when doing their Christmas shopping and take the present to the nearest drop off point. The volunteers then organise the presents in categories of age and deliver the presents to children who may not otherwise receive a present this Christmas.
Fundraising and volunteering from Northsound listeners mean local children in Aberdeen and across the UK, are being given hope and happiness. The charity is looking for volunteers to help organise and distribute the parcels for Mission Christmas.
