Charity VT Woman 3: Having a child in hospital at Christmas, it just doesn’t feel fair.

Text Santa is ITV’s annual charity fundraiser appeal, raising money and awareness for six UK based charities each year.
Our aim is to improve the quality of life for vulnerable people in the UK by inspiring, engaging and empowering the nation to make a difference at Christmas time.
We are proud to say that when you make a text, phone or bank donation to Text Santa, it will be split equally between our six charities. 100% of what you donate gets passed to the charities as soon as we receive it. So by March your money is already helping to make a big difference.
All Text Santa operating costs including staffing and the programme itself are funded directly by ITV as part of our corporate giving, and not from our corporate partners or your contributions.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has got involved to date for their brilliant support and help in raising almost £10 million for charity.
