5 Dec 2011

We are delighted to have been selected as one of the three charities who will benefit from The Independent's Christmas Appeal 2011. 

The appeal launched on Monday 5 December and will run through early January.

The Independent will be featuring case studies and stories from our Make Runaways Safe campaign, as well as featuring work of the other benefiting charities, Save the Children and Rainbow Trust.

The total income raised will be divided equally between the three charities.

As part of the appeal the Independent will be running an auction on Ebay. Items auctioned will include services from Independent writers and 'money can't buy' opportunities to meet the celebrity supporters of all three charities.

By making a donation you will help some of the most vulnerable children both here in the UK and abroad.
