When CRASH Patron Bauder decided they wanted to make a practical difference to the lives of homeless men and women this Christmas, they came up with the idea of toiletry gift bags.

Each of the 100 bags created contained items that most of us would deem as necessities however to a person who has nothing, the thoughtfulness that was put into creating each gift is incomparable.

Mossie Lyons, Director of Kairos Community Trust received some of the gifts. He says: “What a beautiful Christmas gift! We will give them to the more vulnerable residents at the Move-On houses at Kairos.”

He expressed his sincere thanks to Bauder adding: “One of the things we stress is the importance of self-maintenance in aiding self-esteem through the early days of recovery from addictions. These packs will serve as a motivational trigger towards that end.”
