This holiday season, our glamorous city of Paris is faced with a shelter crisis.
Here are the facts about Paris and the homeless challenge:
- There are more homeless in the streets then previous years. Due to the Ukraine War (106,000 new Ukrainian refugees to France), and conflicts and turmoil in the middle East, including natural disasters in Morocco & Libya.
- Paris has less social housing to make room for more hotels and housing to support the significant amount of tourism and Olympic volunteers expected for the 2024 Paris Olympics.
- The result of these challenges and others, has increased the number of homeless in the streets of Paris by 130% since 2012 (the largest growth between 2020 to 2023).
We can’t solve the shelter crisis, but we can help those in the streets survive this winter.
For the last 3 years, STCP has raised donations to purchase tents, sleeping bags and winter accessories for the homeless in Paris. Last year we raised €4000 Euros on Gofundme.com, and this year our goal is to raise €5000 Euros.
There are 2 options how you can help us reach our goal this year:
We are partnering with “Heroes Family” Association in Paris - who are putting on their annual HEROES COSTUME PARTY on Friday, December 8th, where everyone dresses up as their favorite hero for the event. The Heroes Family has rented out a large facility to support up to 400 participants. Tickets to the event are €50 per person, and the proceeds from buying a ticket and bar/alcohol sales will go towards the purchase of tents, sleeping bags and winter accessories for the homeless in Paris. Here is the link to purchase tickets: TICKETS HERE.
If you can’t join the Heroes costume party, please consider donating here on Gofundme.com. Please also take a moment to share this campaign with your friends and family, so we can all help us save lives this winter.
Thank you for joining us in this crusade to help the homeless of Paris this holiday season.
