What is crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.Read more
There are around 5000 people from war-torn and unstable countries in Calais despite recent demolitions. These people are living in dire conditions that no human should be subject to. Care4Calais run a warehouse on the outskirts of the camp from which they distribute donations.
I am going to Calais for one week to volunteer in the warehouse. I will be taking some donations with me but more money is desperately needed to buy gas, warm clothes and food.
I am funding my trip so 100% of the donations will go directly to the charity. If you want to learn more about the crisis and what Care4Calais are doing to help visit their webpage here: www.care4calais.org
I see this as a humanitarian crisis and believe that it is our collective responsibility to help our fellow man.
Anything you can give will make a difference. Get a Tesco finest pizza instead of a dominos this weekend and feed someone that needs it with the change.
