Love Without Borders-For Refugees
I have a vast network of friends and donors that allows me to channel clothing, art supplies and other donations mainly to Greece.
We're already experiencing very cold temperatures in the evenings and have an urgent need for winter clothes in all the camps and housing communities. I tend to vulnerable cases in the camps. We have many pregnant women and women with many children.
In addition, I am teaching people how to design jewelry and sell it to sustain basic food and clothing costs.
I sell the beautiful children's drawings and give them 100% of the proceeds so their mothers/family have money for food. All supplies I buy myself or from donated art supplies through NeedsList.

Designs Without Borders - For Refugees In Need
I am on the front lines two to three weeks a month. I have close contact with all volunteers and displaced persons and need your support.
Thank you in advance to all the many people who have supported my personal campaign. We've been able to move mountains during this most difficult time and bring some joy and love to these people that have been displaced.
With much love,
If you can sponsor a family with rent, or food support, please let me know. We will help them get back on their feet and find a safe environment for their family. I have photo of the family consisting of father, mother, two young boys, but I feel it’s too sensitive to post as the mother just had a C-section, and I will just share the story.
I will keep you posted here and hope we can make a miracle happen tomorrow. I have great faith that we can!
Families and single men that have received a second rejection have recently been told their cash cards are no longer available to them. This is a huge problem and we’re doing our best to fill in. This money is strictly for food. We will also take fruit for the squats and assist those families as well.
40€ can buy meat, vegetables, fruits, rice and dates. We were shopping yesterday and it’s indeed a great help.
We will put together a fundraiser soon for a Ramadan food distribution there.
Collected three suitcases of art from Athens, Chios and Thessaloniki. We’re preparing for a three day art exhibition/awareness event end of May, beginning of June. Please email for more details:
Thank you for your support to help the over 50,000 displaced refugees in Greece. I will leave again on the 4th of May for more art classes, food distributions and spreading some much needed love.
I’ve decided to cancel my upcoming trip to Thessaloniki. As much as I’d love to organize more art classes, visit families and check on the 10 kids, I have to prioritize due to need.
I visited Lavrio camp this last few days to assess the conditions.
There’s about 100 people there with no cash cards, no orgs that are helping on a regular basis and it’s very remote! Almost one hour from Athens!!
Other volunteers go as they can, but I have to prioritize and really feel the need to get these people some basic food staples, diapers and items for the children.
We will go tomorrow to get the exact costs to make these food packs to make sure that everyone in the Camp receives the same, but am guessing about 500€ to cover the costs.
Chickpeas, flour, tea, flatbread, oil, eggs,
milk, sugar are all on the list.
Please help me to help them.
Thank you in advance!
