Fundraising to help refugees in Calais

£340 of £250 goal

Raised by 19 people in 8 months
Hey friends!
I'm hoping you can help me provide refugees in Calais some warmth and support over the winter.. 

On the 4th of January I’m travelling to Calais, where I'll be volunteering for the Help Refugees charity.  I'll be working in the warehouse that aids the refugees sleeping rough in northern France.  

Have you got anything I can take with me? 
I’d like to take items from the Help Refugees Calais needs list.  If you have any items on the list you can spare and you're in London over the next 2 weeks, please DM me so I can arrange picking them up.  These are things like gloves, thermal leggings, walking boots etc. 

Please can you donate?
If you haven't got any items knocking around, the charity would be delighted to receive any monetary donations. 

Interested in volunteering yourself? 
Help Refugees is an incredible charity and there's loads of ways you can support them. I've been really impressed with how smoothly and efficiently they operate so far.  If you're thinking of volunteering, feel free to ask me how it was when I'm back.  

More about Help Refugees, Choose Love

"Help Refugees started as nothing more than a hashtag in August 2015. A group of friends wanted to raise and fill a van full of donations to take down to Calais. Fast forward three years, and we have helped over 722,500 people, managed over 25,000 volunteers, and we support more 80 projects across Europe and the Middle East.

We are pioneering a new movement in charity that provides emergency aid and long term solutions where they are most needed.

We believe your money should go straight to the people who need it. That’s why we make sure that 94% of your donation goes straight to the frontline.

Our model is simple. We go where the need is greatest, find the local organisations doing the most effective work, and give them what they need to help people – whether that’s funding, material aid or volunteers.

With this model, we’ve managed to support more than 722,500 people across 75 projects in 12 countries."

How it Works
  1. You are donating to PayPal Giving Fund UK, a registered charity (No. 1110538), which will email you a receipt for your donation and claim Gift Aid where eligible.
  2. GoFundMe’s platform is free. The charity will typically receive the funds from PayPal Giving Fund within 15-45 days of your donation if the charity has enrolled (or 90 days if the charity has not yet enrolled). Unlike other platforms, 100% of any Gift Aid will go to the charity as well.
* In very limited cases, a recommended charity may cease to meet PayPal Giving Fund's legal or other eligibility requirements. In such cases, PayPal Giving Fund will reassign the funds to a similar charity, and (wherever possible) seek a new recommendation from donors.
