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.


Hi, we are Lia and Juliette and we are walking 1000 miles across 6 countries, from Calais to Croatia. This is to support the fantastic work the charity 'Help Refugees' does. This is a global crisis and we want to raise as much money as possible!

Thousands of people cross into Europe seeking safety and asylum and are faced with horrendous challenges and conditions. Help Refugees funds emergency medical care, food, shelter, women and children's services, search and rescue, informal education, aid and community services working with the most effective partners on over 70 projects across Europe and The Middle East.

We will be setting off on our quest on 13th June 2018 and estimate it will take us 60 days (Fingers Crossed!). We will be crossing through France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Slovenia and finally Croatia.

Any donations will make a huge difference and will all go directly to the charity.
