Article13 - Giving Children a Christmas

08th December 2008 - In 2008 Article 13 Group is celebrating Christmas by making a donation to a children’s charity, more specifically ChildReach which advocates children’s rights and poverty alleviation.

Article 13 works in the areas of Sustainable Development, Governance and Corporate Responsibility, all of which have the overall objective of making a difference to social, ethical and environmental global justice. As part of advocating responsible business this Christmas, our donation supports an organisation that provides communities in developing countries with the resources they need to pull themselves out of poverty, and thus reduce child poverty.

The money is going towards one of ChildReach’s Challenge Events which supports innovative development initiatives in the global South. The project, Climb Kilimanjaro for Kids, recruits participants to fundraise money which goes directly to supporting children in the Kilimanjaro region.

For children to live without their basic rights is unacceptable in our modern, globalised world and by working in partnership it is possible to eradicate child poverty. We have set up Article 13’s appeal, which can be accessed by visiting https://secure.efundraising.org.uk/tailored/donation.asp?charity=73394

Please choose Article 13 from the drop down menu and give generously. We urge you to join us in this extremely valuable initiative and pledge your support.

In fact, they started playing Christmas carols in Phuket’s Tesco on 19th November which took me by surprise. Then I noticed the frozen

Enjoy Christmas, it is a time for celebration and eating for everyone…a little of what you fancy over Christmas will definitely do you good…an odd high glucose reading shouldn't affect your long term control or health or health. 1.

Merry Christmas
’Tis The Season To Celebrate The Annual Festive Tradition Of Refusing To Call Christmas “Christmas.” 68% of Americans say they prefer to be greeted with “Merry Christmas” and not “Happy Holidays” and yet each year the Anti-Christmas Brigade takes to the streets, and takes to the airwaves, to protest against Americans calling Christmas by its name.
