Fed up with the monotony of mindless Christmas consumerism? If, like us, you want to help create a better, fairer world this Christmas, we’ve got the perfect way.
This year, a generous donor has agreed to match the first £5,000 of donations to our Christmas Appeal! Every donation we receive this December will be doubled up to £5000.
Donating to People & Planet will help teach a generation crucial campaigning skills and inspire young people to take action on the issues that matter most.
