My team and I took part in an event at Bron Afon Community Housing in Cwmbran which was attended by around 100 people.
We asked people at the event to make a pledge to do something next year to help tackle child poverty. The messages, which didn't need to be related to money, were written on paper footprints and hung on a washing line.
There were 24 responses in total. They included:
'I will try to be a better person for me and my daughter.'
'I will help other people by listening and supporting them with their difficulties.'
'I will help empower young people to spread the message and eradicate child poverty.'
'I am going to be less materialistic and appreciate what I already have.'
We also offered people t-shirts that we’d created. There were five designs, each featuring a different anti-poverty message. We invited anyone wearing one of the t-shirts to join us on a catwalk to show them off later in the evening.
There was also a clothes ‘swap shop’ event where people could swap their old and unwanted clothes with others.
We have set up a Facebook page to continue to spread our message. It's called 'Blessed To Be A Blessing' and you can visit it by clicking here.
