Christmas ‘Warm for All’ Campaign
Thanks to everyone that helped WarmZilla raise funds for homelessness charity Crisis this Christmas by sharing/retweeting our ‘Christmas Warm for All’ social media post to your followers and tagging a friend. We donated £1 for every time the original post was shared and a friend tagged. We raised £500 for Crisis as a result of your shares, so thank you. 

We also selected one lucky person to win a Google Nest Smart Thermostat with a stand and Gas Safe installation (worth £300). Congratulations to Sharon ‘evil bobcat’ on winning the Google Nest prize.

WarmZilla has announced that it is launching a fundraising drive in support of national homelessness charity Crisis’ campaign, Home for All. 

The announcement was made by Matthew Powell, Managing Director of Warmzilla who said:

“People who are homeless face difficult circumstances. This has been made even harder by the coronavirus outbreak. We believe everyone has the right to have a warm and comfortable place to live in. As we approach the colder seasons, we want to help shine a light on the issue of homelessness and support those who are affected by it; which is why we have chosen to support Crisis. They provide crucial help to people who are facing homelessness in the UK. So in support of Crisis’s Home for All campaign, we are launching our fundraising drive called "Warm for All”.

Crisis’ Home for All campaign was launched during the pandemic to build on the fantastic progress made towards ending homelessness across Great Britain, with more than 15,000 people provided with safe accommodation in a matter of weeks. Crisis is campaigning for further, urgent action to be taken by Government, organisations, and the public to ensure that no one is forced to return to our streets, and to prevent people from losing their homes as a result of the economic impact of the outbreak. 

Warm for All Campaign

The WarmZilla ‘Warm for All’ campaign aims to support Crisis’ Home for All campaign by raising awareness with WarmZilla customers.

WarmZilla have created donation links on their website homepage and thank you page. Future plans include adding a rounding widget to the checkout section of the website, allowing customers to round up their purchase total, and easily donate to the campaign. This will help Crisis to continue to work through the outbreak to deliver coaching sessions and tailored care to help thousands of people on their journey out of homelessness. 

Every £25 donated could provide essential support to people having to leave temporary accommodation and those made newly homeless by the coronavirus emergency.

WarmZilla will also be using social and digital channels to increase awareness of the Home for All campaign as well as getting involved in Crisis fundraising initiatives such as charity walks.

Richard Lee, Director of Fundraising at Crisis, said:

“We’re incredibly grateful to WarmZilla and their customers for choosing to support Crisis’ Home for All campaign. The pandemic has given us all an even better understanding of the value of having somewhere safe and secure to call home – and we now need to ensure that everyone has access to this. “Through generous donations and support from organisations like WarmZilla, we can continue to be there for the thousands of people experiencing homelessness across Britain, providing vital support and advice to ensure they can leave homelessness behind for good.”

About Crisis   

Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. They help people directly out of homelessness, and campaign for the social changes needed to solve it altogether. We know that together we can end homelessness.  

Home for All

Since the coronavirus outbreak began, we’ve never had a better understanding of the value of home – and the many reasons why it should be available to all. 

Crisis have seen individuals, government, and industry work together to achieve the extraordinary – like finding temporary housing for thousands in the span of a few weeks. 

Together, we have supported people who are homeless throughout the outbreak, with immediate needs like food supplies and mobile phones; and longer-term help – with things like mental health and access to benefits and other support so they can rebuild their lives. 

But our work is not over. Unless we do something now and enact long-term as well as short term solutions, this progress will slip and risks being undone. 

The end of homelessness feels within reach, but only if we work together to make it happen. Every action or donation, no matter the size, will help.
