What do Christmas donations to Help for Heroes mean?

With so many charities to donate to for Christmas, please consider the brave veterans we support. We are here to ensure that those who risked their lives are empowered to keep living without their injuries, seen or unseen, holding them back. From running recovery centres where veterans can get the specialist help they need, to ensuring emotional support is only a phone call away, your Christmas donations ensure that we can continue this much-needed work through what can be one of the most wonderful – and challenging – times of the year and beyond.

By giving a Christmas donation, either yourself or in the form of a Christmas gift donation, you are helping us continue our work to support wounded veterans, as well as their families. 

How to donate to charity for Christmas

Christmas is a time of giving and sharing, and Christmas gift donations can mean you are giving more than just a physical gift, but pledging support to our veterans. We have multiple ways for you to make your Christmas donations.

Buy a Christmas gift charity donation

Christmas can be an expensive time, so we understand if you would prefer to get something in return for the Christmas donations you make. The Help for Heroes shop features a wide range of clothing and accessories that make for excellent Christmas presents. From hoodies to scarfs, polo shirts to slippers, our items have been beautifully designed to ensure you look great while supporting an even greater cause.

Make a one-off donation

All Christmas donations help make a difference, so whether you can only donate a few pounds or can commit to an ongoing monthly donation, we truly thank you. You can make donations through our website, where you can also say if your donation is in memory of someone or on behalf of a company, community group, or college. 

Make the Heroes promise

For those who can donate every month, there is the Heroes Promise. For £8 a month, you can ensure ongoing support well beyond the season of Christmas donations.  When you make this pledge, you will receive:

  • A Heroes Promise flyer that we will ask you to personally sign to display in our recovery centres, so our Heroes know they have your support.
  • Regular email updates so you can see how your donations are making a difference.
  • A window sticker.

Payroll giving

If your company wants to make a difference not only at Christmas but through the year, payroll giving is easy to set up. Helping boost staff morale as you all work together to make a difference, Christmas donations can be the start of regular giving without employees having to do a thing.
