Jessie J has vowed to visit a food bank after joining the Mirror’s Give Our Kids A Christmas appeal.
Twenty thousand children will wake up on December 25 hungry, knowing they will not get to eat a Christmas dinner. That is why the Sunday Mirror, Daily Mirror and Mirror Online are calling on their readers to help save Christmas for thousands of poverty-stricken families with Daily Mirros foodbank appeal. Jessie has backed our campaign, and the Price Tag singer admits she can barely believe it is possible in today’s Britain. She said:
“It’s crazy that so many families and especially children are going hungry in the UK in this day and age. We are surrounded by so much wealth yet so many people are falling through the gaps. It’s unacceptable that this is happening in 2013. At this time of the year when we are all thinking of friends and family and giving to those we love we need to take a minute to think about those who are struggling to make ends meet. Please join me in bringing some relief to families by donating to your local food bank.”
You can join Jessie in the Sunday Mirror and our sister paper the Daily Mirror’s major campaign with the Trussell Trust, which runs 400 food banks across the UK.

“Nelson Mandela showed and acted out in front of the world what the true meaning of “fight for what you believe in” is! Thank you for giving humanity your humbling spirit everyday until the very end. I am so happy that one day my future children will learn about you as a genuine leader of love and peace. An example to all. You are an angel.”

From Thursday 21st November, fashion loving members of the public can purchase Gemma Arterton’s black leather Armani dress, Rachel Weisz’s hot pink Joseph wool dress and Jessie J’s bespoke crystal-studded tour dress, raising money for a variety of high profile charities in the process.
The second annual charity sale marks the start of partywear season, with Vestiaire Collective today launching a dedicated partywear section on the site, featuring pre-loved and vintage items from some of the world’s most sought-after designers. Prices start at just £100, with all fashion items curated by the site’s style ambassador, Bay Garnett.
Over the last month, British fashion icons have been donating much-loved items of designer clothing to the luxury resale site. Some of the world’s most photographed stars, from Rachel Weisz, Jessie J, Gemma Arterton, Sophie Dahl, Daisy Lowe, Laura Whitmore, Davina McCall, as well as designers Erdem and Alice Temperley have all donated highly desirable fashion pieces which fashion hunters can now buy through signing up to Vestiaire Collective.
Fanny Moizant, UK Managing Director of Vestiaire Collective, who herself donated items said: “We are thrilled that so many leading lights in the fashion world have come out to support our annual charity initiative – this year we expect to raise thousands for charities from Barnados to NSPCC. We have a treasure trove of fashion gems on the site, and we expect many of these pieces to become valuable collectors’ items so we advise fashion hunters to come early.”
Last week a fashion drop-off event was held at the Sophie Gass boutique in Notting Hill where celebrities such as Rosie Fortescue, Camilla Rutherford, Jade Parfitt, Jasmine Guinness and Bay Garnett donated designer clothing and accessories aiming to raise thousands of pounds for their favourite chosen charities.
Proceeds from each individual sale of the dress or accessory will be given to a charity personally chosen by the celebrity donor (Barnardos, Battersea Dogs Home, Doctors without Borders, NSPCC and Clic Sargent are some of the selected causes).
