About this campaign

My heart absolutely broke when I was watching the invasive and inhumane nature that the press were attempting to sensationalise the refugees trying to cross the English Channel. I then did that stupid thing of looking at the comments and seeing so many people with such negative attitudes towards those who have lost everything and are trying to reach members of their family.

I'd like to raise money for Choose Love / Help Refugees as they have been utterly relentless in their work ever since this refugee crisis began a few years back. I admire those that dropped their careers to set this up and the many volunteers that give up their lives to get out there and support those who have nothing. I'll be looking at different ways of raising some money through mostdeffo, but thought this would be a good place to start.

Choose Love / Help Refugees supports the heroes stepping up to help refugees around the world.

These are the groups keeping the rescue boats afloat, the volunteers distributing tents and hot food, and the brave souls working under the desert sun to place water along the Mexican border. We also help those working to build a brighter future - the teachers working with students to build prosthetic limbs, the therapists helping heal the invisible scars of war, and the lawyers working to reunite families.

Now, faced with COVID-19, the need we face is greater than ever. Our partners are working hard to keep refugees out of harm’s way, whilst providing the essential services people need to survive.

Your support makes everything that we do possible. If you can, please choose love and join us.
