Charity of the Month: Social Bite
A perfect gift this Christmas…
Many of you will of heard of Social Bite by now, especially after the publicity gained when George Clooney came to Edinburgh for tea! He was helping to raise awareness and money for the social business, and his high profile certainly accomplished this.
So what is Social Bite? It’s a cafe, with a difference. The profit raised from this business gets donated to other charities, with a particular focus on helping the homeless. Meals can be bought in advance for homeless people, and one in four employees were previously homeless.
In the season of giving, Social Bite has organised an extra special Itison deal where you can buy a homeless person a meal or provide winter essentials for Refugees in Europe. Last year, this endeavour bought 36,269 meals!! So far this year, they have almost doubled the intake, reaching over 62,800 meals bought (at least at the time of this article).
If you would like to buy a homeless person a meal this Christmas, just follow this link to Itison. Hurry, only one day left of the deal!
