Blogmas Day 14: Make A Child Smile This Christmas

Welcome back to another blog in my blogmas series. Today I had the pleasure of working in the field and I forgot how much I missed that. I didn’t do much fieldwork when I started the job because two months in, Coronavirus! I have done volunteer work before and I loved it. It is actually something I’m passionate about and I’ve always wanted to donate to children’s home. I haven’t done so as yet personally but I did in a group. However, my donation is in the pipeline. After a great day at work and seeing children being happy, what’s a better way to keep that smile on their faces? Donate items, right?

For many years, I’ve been reading about the “Take A Child Home for Christmas” programme that the Child Development Agency (CDA) has but you have to be 25 years and older to apply. Dang! I can’t wait to get to the age so I can at least make a child have an amazing Christmas.

There is a lot of children’s home in Jamaica and they are always in need of items. There is no such thing as too much when you are catering to children. With that being said, here is a list children’s homes that you can donate to this Christmas:

  • Robins Nest Children’s Home
  • The Wortley Home for Girls
  • Jamaica National Children’s Home
  • Garland Hall Memorial Children’s Home
  • Maxfield Park Children’s Home
  • Westhaven Children’s Home
  • Sumbeam Children’s Home
  • Walker’s Place of Safety
  • Mustard Seed Community

These are just a few of the children’s home across the island. Everything that you use on a daily basis, they use the same. If you have items can donate, please do so by searching for their contact information on google. If that will cause an issue for you, I will search for their contact information and send it to you myself.

Make a child smile this holiday. Thank you for reading and I will see you tomorrow. ‘Tis the season to be jolly …
