Morning you lovely lot, it’s Blogmas day 23! We are so close now! Today’s post is on goof deeds to do this Christmas! I decided to create this blog post because I really want to do some good deeds as there are lots of people who won’t get presents this year or see their family. I also created this post to make you aware what charities there are! If you can, I’d be so grateful if you could donate to any of them. This post also includes lots of little things that you can do for free!
Good deeds to do at Christmas!
During Christmas time, there are lots of families who wont be able to afford to feed their loved ones. Therefore it would be so kind if you were able to donate to local foodbanks so these unfortunate ones can eat.
If you are looking to donate, you can sometimes find foodbank stations in supermarkets, hospital, schools etc. You can also drop it to your local food bank. This doesn’t have to even be a full shop, it can literally be a couple of items. Every little helps!

The Book Trust:
The book trust is a charity that sends book parcels for vulnerable children and care homes. It is a charity to help children get into reading! Donating books at this festive time can really make a kids Christmas!

Crisis this Christmas:
Another good deed to do this Christmas is to check out this amazing charity, Crisis! Christmas can be a really horrible time for the homeless as it makes them alone, it’s so cold etc. Therefore I believe this is an amazing charity because with your help, this charity gives gifts to people that live on the street! Your donations could go towards to;
- Friendship and support
- Essential food
- Festive treats
- A place to stay over during the Christmas period

Operation Christmas child (Samaritans):
Samaritans is an amazing charity! One of the things they do for Christmas is a regular shoe box gift operation, This is where you make up a shoebox with lots of gifts inside such as toys, stationary, clothes etc for a particular age group and gender and send it off to an unfortunate child. I have wanted to do this operation for ages as it is such a lovely gesture!

Little acts of kindness:
Not all good deeds have to be donating, cost lots of money, be a big thing, etc. Sometimes the littlest of things are better!
Smiling at someone is so powerful as it can make them smile to and become happy. Honesty just smile at someone and it will make their day!
Cook for family!
Cooking for family is another great way to do a good deed this Christmas! Even if it is something little, or a big Christmas dinner!
Send Christmas cards!
Christmas cards is a really nice gesture and can really make someone’s day, especially in these strange times!
I hope this post inspired you to do something good this year or just any year-round!
