Weʼve raised £465 to Raise money for an amazing organisation Because We Carry
- Funded on Saturday, 1st September 2018
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This small not for profit organisation believes in not just surviving but living and with the help of wonderful volunteers they bring light to the hundreds that have fled from unfathomable darkness. I don't want us to forget about this terrible situation in Lesvos, just because its not the latest story in the news so I'd really like to raise a few funds for them by doing the Seaford Triathlon on the 28th July. Again another challenge for me as I have never done the 3 disciplines one after the other. If you have a few spare pennies and would like to support me and this charity please donate on my page and every penny will go to the charity.
This is straight from their website: https://www.becausewecarry.org/en/
Because We Carry acts according the saying ‘less talk, more action’. On Lesvos, rotating teams of volunteers act to elevate the ongoing human suffering of people arriving on their way to a safe haven.
The teams help those arriving on feeble boats on the inhospitable shore, by handing out dry clothes, deliver baby carriers for the long walking journey ahead, and supply the often exhausted people with food. We also aim to bring joy, and spark some hope and respect into this further desperate context.
To make our charity on the island as lean as possible, we daily decide on which needs we are going to gain our attention and budget. We are a hands-on organization, UNCHR approved and collaborate with various parties present like Movement On The Ground and The Giving Food Truck.
The teams of volunteers provide their own funding; every donated euro will go straight to its purpose.
