Thank you very much for taking interest in my Petition! Supporting the Salvation Army is something Ihave always done and would like to further advocate for all that they do. Not many people have heard of the Salvation Army, know what it is or what they do. Once you’ve read my blog, I hope that you will know a bit more about the Salvation Army and will feel that you want to help with the work they do.
The Salvation Army are often known as a church, but they are a charity as well. They do lots of work with the homeless and poor; helping them find their way back into the world. The Salvation Army was founded in 1865 as the East London Christian Mission. It was founded by William Booth and his wife Catherine. It was founded in the United Kingdom, but is now a worldwide organisation. It was founded as the East London Christian Mission. It was founded because Booth felt that alcoholics, drug addicts, prostitutes and other unwelcome impolite Christian society deserved the right to worship with god and be part of the Christian community.
The Salvation Army are forever at hand. At our luncheon club in Paignton, someone who was an alcoholic turned up. They did not have any money; our leader happily gave them a meal and invited them to our Sunday meetings. Now, a few months later, and they comes most weeks to the Sunday meeting and are trying to find a job. If it wasn’t for the Salvation Army, they wouldn’t have a life like they do now, and they wouldn’t know what it feels like to work and earn money. This is what your donations go towards; as well as the food parcels, coats, the supportive work and various missions they aim to conquer etc.
Although the video attached may be old, the ways of the Salvation Army have not changed- they are still just as helpful and kind to those who need help.
I would like to thank you again for reading my petition. Please would you sign my petition if you believe that more should be done to help those in need of something that most people get every day. Sometimes just a hug!
