Shelter Christmas emergency - because there's no place like home

Shelter Christmas emergency - because there's no place like home | Christmas fundraising | Scoop.it
Beautiful new video from Shelter, though warning: it's a bit of a weepy...
Howard Lake's insight:

Shelter's Christmas 2012 emergency appeal appears on a very simple landing-page, that clearly asks for a donation. At 1:48 the video might be a little long, but it focuses on one child, Ryan, and packs an emotional message. Is it clear though who the man is who keeps turning up outside the house? At first I thought it was the estranged father.

But still, a clear call to action from Shelter.
