Charity Diaries November 2018

 

This month, I spent a day volunteering with the wonderful organisation Help Refugees. They have been around since 2015, starting off as a group of friends in Calais and spreading the word via Twitter. Since then, they have massively grown, and currently operate across Europe and the Middle East, supporting over 80 grassroots projects. The organisation is passionate, genuine, and have a more bottom up approach, with a desire to help the refugee crisis how and where possible.

On Black Friday, they launched their ‘Choose Love’ pop-up store, just off Carnaby Street. This is an interactive store, representing a refugee’s journey, from arrival, to survival, to the future. Customers can walk around and really get a feel for what items are necessary for this journey, and then ‘buy’ gifts for refugees. Items range from hot meals, to sleeping bags, to nappies, to legal and medical care. Whatever items customers select, 100% of the money will go towards real grassroots projects that provide this. The interactive element of the shop allows people to see what they are donating towards, which is great.

I had a great day volunteering at the store. This is a great way to give something back this festive period, and definitely worth checking out! It is open until 31st December. Check out more information here
