Unite Against Terror

£73,677 of £100,000 goal

Raised by 818 people in 16 months
Last night, Britain suffered from its second terror attack in as many weeks. We all want this to stop. 

The question is, how?

The far-right think they have the answer: today The Observer reported that far right groups have raised £50,000 so they can go out on their own boats to stop refugees reaching dry land. They want to stop people who are so desperate to escape violence in their home countries, they put their own children into leaking boats that they know may sink before reaching the relative safety of Europe. 

Far right agitators would have you believe that it is these desperate people, these traumatised families, who are a danger to us. They think the right response to terrorism is to make sure more of them drown.

But the reality is, the people they are fleeing from are terrorising them with the same twisted ideology of those trying to bring terror to our streets.

You wouldn't try to stop a victim of a terror attack fleeing from danger. Don't let the far right do this to refugees. Don't let the far right's hatred define us as Brits, or as Europeans. Now is not the time to give in to fear and hatred.

I do not pretend to have the answers. I do not pretend to know how to defeat this hateful ideology. But I do know that letting desperate people, who are themselves fleeing terror, drown is categorically not the answer.

Let's fight back against hatred. Let's not let terrorism kill off our humanity.

All proceeds from this crowdfunder will go to MSF search and rescue teams. Read more about their work here:  https://www.msf.org.uk/country/mediterranean-search-and-rescue

Hello again you lovely lot!

Just a quick note to share a thank you video MSF made for us :) and a huge thank you to you all from me as well for your incredible generosity.

Events in the UK rather overtook us, what with the election results and the awful Grenfell fire -- meaning we have rather stalled on donations. BUT: it has still been an incredible show of support and a massive injection of money that MSF would not have received otherwise.

If you know anyone who would like to help fill in the final 20% of target, please do send them the link, and of course please share on social media.

Until next time,

Hello you lovely lot!

Just a quick note to thank you all SO MUCH for your incredibly generous donations. We've managed to get to 70% of our target in just two days which is AMAZING. The far-right crowdfunder took three weeks to get to half our target so I think it's safe to say that love trumps hate, now and always.

I've been in touch with MSF who are just overwhelmed by the response. The far-right groups who have been trying to stop them saving refugees from drowning have been a huge cause for concern -- not only in stopping them doing their jobs, but in making them worry that the public did not support them. We have proven that this is not the case.

If there's anyone you know who might want to throw in a donation to get us to the 100% mark, please do send forward them this email -- I've written more about why I think this matters, and why in particular it matters now, here: https://www.the-pool.com/news-views/latest-news/2017/23/caroline-criado-perez-on-crowdfunding-for-rescued-migrants - feel free to share that too on social media.

That's all for now. I'll be back in touch once we've hit target -- which judging by current rates will not be long! In the meantime, thank you so much, every single one of you, for your support, both financial and in spreading the word. You are the reason hate will never win. Be proud.

In huge gratitude and awe of your generosity,

Caroline xx
