The underlying mission of World Zombie Day is to support the prevention of hunger and homelessness. We do this by raising money for charities that work towards alleviating these issues.
We are excited to reveal our charity of choice for 2018 is Shelter from the Storm, London’s only free homeless shelter. Located in North London, they provide shelter and support for the homeless and dispossessed. Through our research and communications with them, we are confident that the work they do, and any money we raise for them, will make a real difference and positive impact on the lives of homeless people.
At Shelter from the Storm, they do not waste time and energy worrying about whose responsibility someone is or who’s going to pick up the tab … they will. Because they raise all their own money, without a penny from the Government, they can and do receive guests from anywhere; from the Probation Service to the Red Cross, from Guildford to Ghana, regardless of their access to funding. They have guests who are fleeing torture, forced marriage, honour crime, trafficking for work or sex and plenty who have just fallen through the cracks of our society. Whether it’s an ex squaddie with post traumatic stress compounded by alcoholism, a domestic worker kept in slavery, or a young person thrown out by their family for being gay – their volunteers care for each guest as an individual.
Shelter from the Storm relies entirely on generous donations to survive. Everything you give is used purely to keep offering our services to those who need them.
For less than £20 per guest per day, we provide a warm bed, breakfast, a hot evening meal and a range of services including – laundry, showers, counselling, legal clinic and English lessons.
I hope you share our enthusiasm and will join us in raising money for Shelter from the Storm on October 6th.
