The true meaning of Christmas often gets lost in and amongst the sea of commercialisation that accompanies the season. Thankfully golden nuggets of sheer joy, such as Channel 4's Old People's Home for 4 Year Olds, shine through like stars guiding wisemen to Bethlehem. If you missed the Christmas special then do catch up with it over the festive season.
Online bingo isn't somewhere where you'd expect to find another nugget of joy. After all, if you visit the majority of sites then you'll find advent calendars, big prize jackpots and other festive promotions in front of you. However, one site stands out from the crowd and that site is Gala Bingo.
Back in March 2016, Gala Bingo launched a partnership with the 52 Lives Charity. Each week charity games are held on the site and the money raised from these games is then donated to help an individual or family who needs support.
For Christmas, Gala Bingo aren't hosting a 12 Days of Jackpots or 12 Days of Prizes. Instead they have the 12 Lives Of Christmas. It's an opportunity for players at Gala to find out more about the lives 52 Lives are changing and why. You can also discover the gifts that the 12 Lives have received in order to help them with day to day life.
So far, Gala have added four stories. These include Stacie who is confined to a wheelchair and suffers from memory loss and debilitating headaches due to cancer. Stacie and her partner can't afford presents for their daughters this year, but thanks to Gala and 52 Lives they'll be getting a new laptop and other surprise gifts.
Joining Stacie on 12 Lives is 4 year old Noah. He has a rare neuro condition called Cerebellar Hypoplasia. Gala and 52 Lives are joining forces to help Noah's family purchase special communication software so he is ready to start school next year.
If you have a moment we urge you to read the rest of the 12 Lives stories shown at Gala Bingo. They're lovely reads and it's heart warming to know that lives are being changed thanks to the work of 52 Lives and the support of Gala. Well done to them!
