Working together :)

Dropped off bags of adult clothes to SHARE this afternoon as we focussing on baby and kids packs until mid November and we don’t want them sitting around when they could be on their way. And a highchair that is going straight to a local family in need. Met Lowri Tegan Earith for the first time too which was great.

I was there to collect two double buggies that Charlie from SHARE had kindly brought back from Nora Carlin for us for two local families in need. Thankyou Charlie & Thankyou Nora Carlin.

And Lowri Tegan Earith gave us loads reusable (and disposable) nappies for the baby packs for Lebanon.

I saw all the bags of teddies too waiting to go to Genna Rourke for Merseyaid for the Lebanon container too.

We were saying how it’s really good how we all working together to get stuff to those in need. Top stuff

Productive Evening!

Really productive evening with everyone pulling together to get the aid sorted ready for making packs.

We started building a pallet for Chios and one for Athens.

And getting everything ready for Lebanon packs to be made.

We need loads of kids gloves all sizes, kids underwear all size both boys and girls.

Thankyou Katharine Nell, Jane Butcher who only had a baby 8 weeks ago – amazing lady and brought aid over from Hoole too from Karen Bowen, Claire Edge Roberts and her son Ben who got a tonne of stuff sorted and brought two prams, Kim Neige Guillot and Sally Duquette-Peake for the drop off.

I don’t always get time to say thankyou to everyone who brings stuff over and does amazing things towards the cause but all the actions of everyone are well and truly appreciated.

Pallets have arrived!

Remember these from the pictures of the pallets sent last Thursday?
Kerrie Moor has just had confirmation they have arrived at hers in Athens ready for volunteers to start giving out to refugee families.
Food, blankets, buggies, nappies, wipes, baby bottles, baby food, hats. scarves and gloves, maternity clothing, bras and much much more.

See you donate to us, we show you what we bought or what has been donated going onto pallets at our unit…and then we can tell you when its arrived and we should hopefully soon get some updates on distribution as Kerrie Moor is back in Athens in 4 days.

Another pallets is going end of the week now as we have 24 food packs and more baby and mum stuff x

thanks to everyone who donated, sorted, packed and wrapped xx

Thank you :)

Thank you to everyone who donated on PayPal last two days for Lebanon so appreciated and we had also a £500 anonymous donation for Lebanon food plus out first charities trust cheque from another donor who wants to remain anonymous.
Thanks to everyone all over who is sending kids stuff to us and making packs to drop off our courier to us from far and wide.
To everyone who is coming tomorrow to sort and now make two additional pallets to Athens and Chios (Kostas Tanainis) and for everyone who has been sourcing stuff for local families.
To everyone organising collections locally to them to bring over.
Thankyou everyone you’re all doing something amazing am very humbled by all this as you are all helping a lot of people who find themselves in dire need

Donations needed

The food order is going in for Lebanon tomorrow with Genna Rourke, we don’t have much to go towards it at the moment  😦

I know I ask and ask and ask but this is a direct way to feed kids in winter conditions in sub zero temps in tents.

It’s life or death.

I have given up my whole life to do this I have had no income for over a year to do it and I have sold some stuff on ebay to donate to it.

Please help.

We go about our lives, we are so lucky. This is a way to help directly. Its not funding leather chairs in a London based HQ – we even show you where your aid goes.

Spread this far and wide. I am calling out tonight for everyone to do what they can, even if it is sharing where you cannot afford to donate, it helps maybe reach someone who doesn’t know what we are doing. It makes a difference.

If anyone wants to donate to the food aid we are collectively lifting over to Lebanon these are the ways to help.
