    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    In November, Lucy Simon and I are going to Calais to volunteer in the refugee warehouse to sort through donations, prepare food and distribute both to hundreds of desperate refugees. We went in July and this was one of the most valuable things we have ever done with our time so are returning in November for one more week and would love to take donations with us again. That's where you can help!

    This money will be used to buy items desperately, desperately needed in Calais which is currently home to around 2,000 refugees. We have seen first-hand that the items we donate are handed straight out to very grateful refugees the same day or week they hit the warehouse shelves and even one tent really, really can make a difference.

    The current refugee crisis is the World’s largest refugee crisis since the second world war, and it is estimated (in contrary to what the Daily Mail may tell you) that more than 70% of these migrants qualify for legal asylum in Europe as they are fleeing countries torn apart by war, dictatorial oppression, and religious extremism – and, in Syria’s case, all three. Whilst they wait for this paperwork (which can often take over a year), refugees sleep rough in camps across Europe and rely on charities like Help Refugees to provide them with food, warm clothes, tents and medical attention. They are very vulnerable during this time and are often made to feel unwelcome, and in extreme cases actually abused by authorities to deter them from being there.

    Help Refugees are a group of everyday people, who come together to try and help improve the lives of refugees. In less than two years, they’ve become the biggest facilitator of grassroots aid on the continent, with more than 80 projects across Europe and the Middle East, but rely heavily on donations from people like us to keep going!

    Thank you for anything you can donate :) Amy, Lucy & Simon x
