Join Tearfund's Big Bake this Christmas and get merry (self) raising lots of money for the world's poorest people*. Arrange a festive Big Bake in your workplace, church, school or front room and we'll give you plenty of help to make it happen.

Mince pies, yule logs, maybe even a fruitcake or two? Whether you make it or fake it, your Christmas celebrations will make the world of difference this year.

Sign up today to get your free pack and host a Christmas Big Bake where you are.

*People like Yasmin.

    Bake...for Yasmin

    We spent two weeks in Yasmin’s village, yet this stunning picture is the only image we have of her beautiful smile, because Yasmin doesn’t smile often.

    This isn’t because she’s not loved. She is, dearly. It’s because she’s hungry, all of the time.

    In this part of Chad the drought is so bad that Yasmin’s mother spends hours digging in ants’ nests looking for seeds to feed her family.

    Whilst people are on the brink of starvation they can’t learn, can’t plan, can’t hope.

    The money you raise through Big Bake could empower villages like Yasmin’s and provide nutritious meals for their children.
