Hollywood superstar, George Clooney, has launched a campaign to feed the homeless at Christmas by donating the first £5. The appeal aims to feed thousands of homeless people in Scotland on Christmas Day and throughout 2016.
The movie star actor, 54, was filmed donating £5 and urged other people to do the same. People can also contribute towards a convoy of vans that are leaving on Boxing Day with food and winter essentials to refugee camps in Calais, the Serbia/Croatia border and Lesbos.
Last year Social Bite, the not-for-profit Scottish sandwich shop chain, received over 36,000 donations, raising more than £180,000. This allowed them to provide free meals for homeless people all-year round in five of their shops.
Social Bite’s co-founder, Josh Littlejohn, said: “We still have unacceptable levels of homelessness and poverty here on our doorstep and we’re grateful for the public’s support in helping us to do our bit, but we can’t forget the horrendous conditions faced by millions of innocent men, women and children feeling conflict.”
Trespass clothing brand have agreed to match each donation.
