    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    We are driving to Calais next Monday with supplies for the refugees in the Calais Camps. More than ten people have died here since June, and over 100 women are living outside the secure area some of whom are pregnant. We need to take action. We've set up this page to receive cash donations.

    Over 1,200 refugees are living in desperate conditions. Las week an Eritrean woman was hit by a car on Calais’ urban motorway. A few days before, a Sudanese man had tried to jump on to the Eurostar and fell. Samir, an Eritrean baby, was born and passed away within the space of an hour after her young mother fell from a truck. We will be purchasing supplies to donate to Calais Migrant Solidarity to help these people.

    The initial supplies will arrive in Calais on 10th August, with further supplies being shipped as soon as possible to help those in need.

    Your pledge will help with the purchase of winter jackets, shoes, shelter and much more. The more we raise, the more we can help. Our van is very nearly full but Calais Migrant Solidarity also need books, games and instruments. A comprehensive list that will guide us in our purchase can be found here:
