Absolutely all money raised will go straight to Help Refugees to fund their vital work supporting unaccompanied child refugees in Greece.

A person is forcibly displaced from their homes every three seconds — now over 65.5 million people. And in Europe there are thousands of children trapped without their parents, with nobody to help them.

We're making this happen because this is a cause that really means a lot to us. We have personal experience with the refugee crisis and immensely appreciate your support.
