Give it to a charity, i'm sure if someone can afford a computer, internet connection and phonebill to come on here then they aren't really that poor. :)

i know i want someone who is deserving as no only would i be giving it away but i would also be putting my hand in my own pocket to pay for it to be posted. now i did read a struggling at xmas post the other day by someone that will only get £80 income support before xmas to last and i really felt for her its not nice.

I agree with you, it would be hard to find somebody genuinely needy on here. i think it's a really nice gesture from you though.

Be wary, you see people all teh time post stuff like this . My best friend online was always moaning she skint couldnt pay the bills. But she find money to go on dates etc

She not my best friend anymore or even my friend as i got sick of her 2 yrs of whines 24/7
#20
You could always sell it here and give the money to help the heroes , barnardos , nspcc etc
#21
wrap it p and take it to your doctors - see one of the health visitors - she will know whos needy:thumbsup:

or give it to local old peoples home
#22
it depends what you are giving away too. Why not sell it and donate the money to charity instead, the Salvation Army do a lot for the less fortunate at xmas time.
#23
yeah not sure what to do now just thought i have this item and i dont need anymore money for it and dont know if it is worth doing it as it is a pair of mens trainers they are brand new and boxed but i could also get someone whining at me because its not a excellent thing to give away too be honest i am scared of someone judging me for doing it.

where i used to live they did a thing on the local radio, it was make a child smile and dont know if urs will do it but you just dropped off gifts and they got passed on to the unfortunate kids under 18 for xmas
#27
It's a lovely idea and why on earth would anyone whine at you for having a heart? I'm sure someone with holes in their shoes and letting the rain in would be grateful for some new trainers, Maybe a family that have put their kids first and let treats for themselves go by the wayside? Holly 100s idea sounds the best in this situation...health visitors get to see how people live and know who are genuine.

is there any hostels in ur area?

not that i know of.
#31
Any local charity would be glad to re-home those trainers although I'm thinking that the Salvation Army and similar do a lot of good work with the very needy at Christmas.
#32
my advice would be to take the trainers somewhere that is holding a xmas raffle, somewhere like a day centre or community centre/church xmas fayres. I've already been to a few xmas fayres and some of the items in the raffle were great, great way for them to raise some money :) At least that way you know who you're donating to. I'd also second the salvation army, or any other clothing places.

well i do know the health visitors would know dont want anyone to feel sorry about this but health visitors was involved with my partners 2 eldest girls as there mother turned to drugs after getting in with the wrong crowd. she starved them and left them in the house on there own at the age of 4 and 5 when we managed to get the social workers to listen to us it took 2 years to take her to court as she feed them every sod story going but i the end i fought her in court for the girls and i won i was only 19 so was very chuffed with myself as i thought they would turn me away because of my age anyway enough of the going on with myself the girls are 12 and 14 now and have lived with me for 6 years and there mother is not allowed to see or speak to them.
#35
Excellent attitude OP:thumbsup:
If it is a few items, you could put it as new thread asking people who really are in need to pm you. If it is lots, you could give it to charity, me thinks.

Like your style and sure you will make the right choice. Even if it is put in one of these charity collection bags.

People who really need charity will not be looking at labels on shoes etc if they are offered gratis. If they do then they are not really that needy. I have given out food on a refugee line when I was in the military and those people were grateful for anything going - some had nothing on their feet and had been travelling for a long time.

If you don't feel comfortable, donate anonymously.

do they still do them x mas shoe box things for the 3rd world countries?

I'm glad it had a happy ending, i don't know if i could have took on all that responsibility at 19, at least they are safe and loved now. i hope you find a deserving home for the trainers anyway. Rep added for having a heart and thinking about others x
