Raised by 13 people in 21 months
My name is Philip Sheridan Sides.

My address is
Kilbaha Cottage
Co Clare

I am raising funds for my organisation which is called Whistles for Refugees. I set this organisation up in order to fund the costs of salvaging tents, sleeping bags, clothing and shoes at festivals in Ireland and turning this from incinerator food into aid for refugees.

I also am to save to buy whistles to bring to the camps so we can teach Irish music to the Refugees.

The funds will be spent on transport to and from Paris Ground Support; an NGO destributing aid to refugees living on the streets of Paris .  We need to cover the costs of fuel and tolls for collecting, sorting and delivering the sleeping bags, tents and clothing that we salvage at festivals.

I plan to withdraw the money from my AIB account so I can book the ferrys and then have money to pay for the fuel on the return journey as we need it.

Warm regards.
Philip Sheridan Sides M/phil B.A.

Yesterday a faithfull supporter of WFR offered to bring us a donation towards the Car Ferry. This morning a person who I had never even met before in real life, drove to Castlepollard to meet and donate €300 to help us get our aid to France. Along with some very useful mens gloves and socks. The universe is with us.
