How can you help Making Space over Black Friday weekend?
It’s that time of the year again when we start budgeting for Christmas. Christmas is the season of goodwill to all and so we often feel that we would like to give to charity. This can be difficult for many of us as our budgets only just stretch to the Christmas staples we all expect.
However, you CAN give to charity and it won’t cost you an extra penny!
Black Friday always falls on the first Friday after Thanksgiving. This year, it will take place on Friday 29 November and will last the entire weekend, culminating with Cyber Monday on 3 December which is the online-only day of the sale. This is a great time to do much of your Christmas shopping as shops offer excellent discounts and it’s just after pay day!
This year, not only will you get a bargain but you can give to Making Space too. Please take a look at the great ways you can shop and raise funds for Making Space and it won’t cost you a penny?!
