MartinYour gift could mean everything to someone like Martin. After his father, sister and brother died – one of them at Christmas – Martin struggled to hold his life together. Then a sudden illness meant he lost his job – and everything fell apart. Martin found himself alone on the streets.

Christmas was the worst time of all.

“If you’ve lost family over Christmas, it’s horrible. There aren’t enough tears. And out there, it’s bitter. You find your cardboard to sleep on, and you settle down but it’s so cold you can’t sleep and you’re coughing. You really feel it.”

Martin was shocked at how people treated him too. They look at you as if you’re invisible,  he remembers.

But when Martin found Crisis at Christmas, everything changed. He was amazed to be welcomed in and looked after.

“I’m just loving it. I went to the dentist, someone was sewing my coat, and the food! Crisis just brings people together. If I wasn’t here I’d be sleeping in a doorway.”

The future is looking brighter now. “I can go to Crisis in the new year and do something. I’m going to find somewhere to stay, get back into employment. It all starts here!”

When Martin left us his life was on the up once more. What better Christmas present could you give someone?
