Sometimes you see a project that is blooming wonderful, so inspiring and that reminds you of how great people can be, that you just need to share it. Social Bite is one of them.
Social Bite is a sandwich shop with branches in Glasgow and Edinburgh, that prides themselves on providing great and tasty food but that helps support great causes too. They refer to themselves as a social business where 100% of their profits go to good causes and 1 in 4 of their staff are formerly homeless people. They also run a suspended coffee scheme where you can buy a hot drink or food item in advance and a homeless person can go into the shop and claim it. It really is all about giving back to the community and a business to help others. It is such a refreshing change of perspective.
This Christmas, in the Season of giving, Social Bite are opening their doors on Christmas Eve/Day to offer homeless people dinner. What a fantastic gesture at a time when the most vulnerable can feel increasingly lonely. Partnering with ITISON you can help. By donating a fiver you can buy a homeless person a Christmas dinner and give them the chance to enjoy some festive time with friends and their Social Bite family.
I think this is such a wonderful initiative and at this time of year when you are out shopping, why not spare £5 to give a Christmas gift to someone less fortunate?
You can buy a homeless person a Christmas dinner here.
