What is your Christmas wish this year? To spend time with loved ones? To enjoy a snowy Christmas? To have a Christmas tree with gifts underneath. Everyone has a different version of their ideal Christmas and so we want to know; what is your Christmas wish?This year we have been asking that very question to some very special young people across the world. We have been sent Christmas wishes from Kenya to Russia; from Uganda to Scotland and we want you to join them! One young girl we spoke to was a very inspirational girl called Monicah:
Monicah’s family was split by war in the Democratic Republic of Congo and she and her father fled to Uganda. On arrival at Sky is the Limit School she was exhausted and malnourished. The school provided her with counselling and she has become an outgoing, confident girl again. With your continued support she is doing very well at school, enjoys dancing and singing and hopes to become the best doctor in Uganda!
Why not send us your Christmas wish? Whether it is big or small, we want to know what you are wishing for this Christmas. While some people look forward to eating turkey and pulling Christmas crackers around a table surrounded by friends and family, there are many people, especially children, who wish for something else.
To be happy. To have an education. To do good. To see change for peace. Maybe even to be a dinosaur? Or an Actress like Anita?
Anita is 12. Her father left the family a few years ago and Anita’s mother is trying to raise 4 children alone. Anita’s mother cannot work and struggles to feed her family, let alone pay for school fees and uniform. When Anita arrived at Sky Is The Limit she was small for her age and quiet. At Sky is the Limit the children receive a school meal each day, this helps them concentrate and learn. Due to your support Anita has performed well in her primary examinations and hopes to go to secondary school. She loves that all of the children are treated the same at Sky is the Limit and one day hopes to be the school music and drama teacher!

We want to do our best to make all of these children and young people’s wishes come true.
Have a look at some of the wishes our young people at Orion Children’s Community and Sky Is The Limit School have sent to us. What wonderful Christmas wishes they have made!
So, this Christmas, we are asking for something from you to help give these young people the Christmas they deserve. Now matter how big or small, every donation that you can spare goes such a long way. And, now there are so many ways to donate, it’s even easier to help us reach our goal!
