    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

    Sofie Elise Quist and Louis Waterman-Evans are heading out to volunteer in Thessaloniki, Greece, in October. Having watched the refugee crisis develop and unfold, and been dismayed by how little our governments seemed to be doing, we would like to get a first-hand experience of what it's really like in Greece, understand the jounreys made by asylum seekers, and contribute our skills in the best way possible.

    Sofie will be volunteering with Advocates Abroad, which provides legal support to asylum seekers. She will be helping asylum seekers to make their claims for refugee status during her time there.

    Louis will be volunteering with Hope Project, which runs a community space for asylum seekers in the heart of Thessaloniki. He will be teaching English, German, and running workshops at the centre during his time there.

    Both of these organisations are entirely sustained by donations, so your money will have an immediate and real impact. All of the funds we raise here will be given directly to the organisations we're volunteering with; our trip is entirely self-funded. We want to start our volunteering out there by handing the respective organisations a big cheque to say "thank you" for their dedication.

    To raise awareness of our fundraising, my brother, Torin Waterman-Evans and I are attempting a 'Pure 3 Peaks' challenge. Watch this video to find out more!

      Update from the Page owner

      This is just a quick note to say a huge thank you to everyone that has donated so generously, and helped us to reach our fundraising target of £1000. Sofie is now in Greece volunteering, and can already see how the money will be put into action; Louis will be joining her next week. We will post some updates in the near future showing you exactly how your money is being used, and the help that it is doing. Thanks again folks!

      Thanks for your on-going reminders of the plight of the refugees, and the lack of concerted effort to deal with this critical problem by European governments.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
