    Funded on Thursday, 15th November 2018

    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 charity.

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

    Story

    Despite the eviction of an estimated 6,000 refugees out of the Calais ‘Jungle’ in October 2016 and the disastrous fire in Dunkirk in April 2017 (which left over 1,500 refugees shelterless), Help Refugees continue to support those who are arriving in Calais and sleeping rough. They are providing blankets, clothes and food to hundreds of refugees, predominantly unaccompanied minors.

    In addition to volunteering on-site in Calais later this year, I've volunteered to drive donations from the UK to Calais. Sadly, I've just been told that there are currently no supplies to take down there. This is why I decided to put together this fundraiser.

    These are the things that are urgently needed in Calais today:

    1. Tents - since French authorities confiscate them daily directly from the refugees (£20 each)

    2. Sleeping bags/blankets (£10-15 each)

    3. Waterproof jackets (£10-£15 each)

    4. Shoes and boots (£25 each)

    My fundraising goal is high but I've set my heart on not arriving in Calais with anything less than a car filled to the brim with supplies to keep folks warm and dry during what might be the most difficult winter of their lives.

    Help me make it happen.

    Thanks,

    Sarah

      Hello kind folks, I've been in regular communication with the team in Calais about their process for distributing these critical items. Due to circumstances on-site, they are only distributing things when they have enough for EVERYONE so these funds are going to go directly to Help Refugees so they can purchase enough goods (with their bulk discounts) for EACH AND EVERY refugee. I wanted to make sure that everyone who has donated or is considering donating is aware of what's best for Help Refugees. Thanks so much for your support! xo Sarah
