    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    Basic human rights are a shared responsibility. There are currently over 47,000 displaced refugees, many are women and children caused largely by the displacement of people from war-torn countries such as Syria. The weather is turning and they need our help now as it gets colder and colder during winter. We have watched too much on the news to ignore. Lets come together and take responsibility to provide basic human needs to mothers and children.

    This year the team at Pretzel have decided to put their Christmas Party fund into hiring vans and buying petrol to get supplies to refugees in Serbia.

    We are mums and dads, brothers and sisters who have all been affected by what we have seen. Pretzel make documentaries all over the world highlighting issues of war, famine and disaster. Now is our time to actually do something that helps, give up something we enjoy and put our energy into helping as many refugees as we can.

    We depart for Serbia on the 7th of January and intend to deliver to an NGO on the 9th. We will upload a 1 minute film every day of our journey from the loading of the vans to the journey itself through Europe to our final destination, which will be wherever is the largest crisis. You will see for yourselves, in real time, where your money has been spent and who it is helping.

    Supporting the local economy. These donations will be spent buying basic aid for children and mums within the country they are in. Water, nappies, baby food, clothing, women's hygiene, and shelter. The money Pretzel Films would have spent on the office Christmas party will be spent on vehicles and petrol to get us there. Making sure all donations are spent on basic aid. The Christmas Party fund will be used to hire the vans, pay for petrol and accommodation.
