CHOOSE LOVE

Between December 4th and Christmas Eve 2016, Help Refugees launch our ‘CHOOSE LOVE’ campaign, calling for people to show their support for the 65 million people seeking refuge worldwide. Through a series of events and initiatives we aim to encourage empathy, increase awareness and raise funds to help sustain and expand our work on the front lines of this crisis.

As a brutal winter approaches, we need you now more than ever. This is still a crisis, but we are not powerless.

The campaign will see a series of events hosted by celebrated people across the arts. If you can buy a ticket, come and join the party. If you can’t make it, throw your own. If partying isn’t your thing, and actually you just really love pub quizzes, put on a pub quiz.

Tell us what you’re doing – take photos, tweet us, tag us in all your events.

Whatever it is – even if you’re just planning on selling some cake to your friends and talking their ear off about what happened in Calais – get a T shirt or a jumper for yourself and your loved ones, to spread the message.

No act of compassion is too small. Please join us – CHOOSE LOVE.
