Every Young Person has POTENTIAL

Ruksak45218 is a Southwick (Wiltshire) based Charity that provides a rucksack of essential items, i.e. bedding, clothing, toiletries, school uniform, footwear etc  for young persons aged 5 to 18 in Wiltshire. We believe every young person has POTENTIAL regardless of their background. Whilst we all adapt to “The New Normal” our young person’s cannot wait for this and cannot remain without the essentials.

How can we have in Wiltshire –

·         Young persons in period poverty

·         Kids with holes in their shoes

·         Kids being bullied as they don’t have the right clothes

·         Kids going to bed on bare mattresses as they don’t have duvets

·         Kids using dish cloths as face flannels and the list goes on

We need your help – you have all been fantastic over the past 18 mon this – but there is so much more to do and this is how you can help us – we are launching our £1 donation campaign and it’s aims are simple – if everyone in Wiltshire can spare a £1 - we will then make up rucksacks for every age group for kids aged 5 to 18 years of age and ensure their POTENTIAL is achieved.

If we want OUR YOUNG PERSONS to ACHIEVE POTENTIAL and do well in their education – this can’t be done if they don’t have the essentials, i.e. proper clothes, bedding, toiletries, footwear etc – we want our YOUNG PERSONS to feel confident about themselves, their appearance and to know they have the support of the community – so we all need to get behind our YOUNG PERSONS – as the Wiltshire Young Persons of Today are The Wiltshire Adults of Tomorrow.

We had requests last year for over 100 Winter Coats for kids – that’s nearly £2000 on just coats – that’s why every pound given will make a difference to a young person – we already have over 100+ requests in the past week for winter coats – so we really need your help.

Question we are always asked What is 45218

It means for five to eighteen year olds – in other words – young persons should be free to concentrate on their education and not have to think about in one young persons words “in my maths lesson I’m thinking on my way home, I’ve got to nick 2 washing pods, so mum can wash my clothes”

Please let us all allow our Young Persons to concentrate on their education – whist we can’t change the world – we can make a difference.

Thanks
