Hello everyone, Christmas is just around the corner and whilst for some that means getting together with family and friends and sharing gifts and generally having a good time but it's not that way for all.
I don't just want you to visit this journal and read and go, I would like you to take a moment and reflect on the purpose of my writing to you about Bethany. This year has been tough for the management and staff at Bethany due to a shortage of funding, but this situation has not stopped this dedicated band from carrying out their duties diligently and professionally. The home has currently 25 children to care for of various ages each with their own needs and whilst things may be tough the children always come first.
I appeal to all my readers to give a little to Bethany for Christmas either by contacting Rose Longcob direct at email@example.com or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how best you can help.
Thank you for taking the time to read this appeal.
