From the Children's Society

Dear ____,

Thank you so much for adding your voice to our petition against payday lending advertising during children's television. I work for one of The Children's Society's children's centres in Bradford, and every day we provide debt advice and counselling to families who have nowhere else to turn.
I see daily the terrible impact that debt has on young, hard-working families - distressed and desperate parents wanting the best for their children, but constantly struggling to put food on the table and clothes on their backs due to ever rising living costs. Many feel they have no choice but to take out short-term loans with crippling interest rates - this only adds to their problems.
Please consider donating now to help us reach more families before the cycle of debt becomes more than they can bear.

We talk to young people every day who are affected by the debt their families face; teenagers whose parents cannot afford to buy their school uniforms; nine-year-olds whose mothers are going without dinner so that they themselves can eat.
Please donate now so that we can help families keep food on their tables

If you'd like to learn more about our work, please visit our website.

Thank you again for supporting our petition against payday lending advertising during children's tv programmes. Together, we can change children's lives for the better.
