A Christmas message from Sister Sledge | ActionAid UK

Sisters Debbie, Joni and Kim from 70s girl group Sister Sledge, best known for 'We are family', talk about what Christmas means to them. Watch the video below to listen to their Christmas message and find out how you can give a child a future.

What were the best Christmas presents you were given as children?

One Christmas, we got every single thing on our list. We made a big list and when we got together it was a serious meeting. We got an Easy Bake Oven, a Beauty Vanity, and a hostess buffet.

What do you love about Christmas?

Debbie: One of the most wonderful things about Christmas is seeing a child open up a gift.  They just light up the whole room and it just lights up your whole being.

A message from Sister Sledge:

We’re Sister Sledge.  Give a child a future and sponsor a child this Christmas with ActionAid.

Sponsor a child and you’ll support their family too

Sister Sledge are best known for their hit anthem ‘We are family’, released in 1979. They became a symbol of strong family values, and went on to become international superstars — best known during the disco era, but still much listened to and loved today.

In the developing countries we work in, such as Malawi and Afghanistanfamilies often can’t afford to send their children to school, or give them more than one meal a day, let alone a Christmas present that will light up their faces.

Sponsoring a child with ActionAid this Christmas will not only light up their face with the prospect of an extra meal and the chance to go to school, but it will help their brothers and sisters and their wider community too, by giving them access to their basic needs.

Please consider giving a child — and their family —  the chance of a better future this Christmas.
