RAISE - Refugee Action in Somerset East
RAISE - Refugee Action in Somerset East is a small local charity enabling people like you to do something to help those fleeing war and persecution.
Having warm, dry feet is a basic need and links directly to well-being and health. Many refugees will not have even this essential comfort that most of us take for granted.
Save Our Soles!
In this campaign we aim to collect donations of both new socks, and money to buy socks. The socks donated will be given to refugees in Calais, Greece and Syria through our regular distribution networks. For more information on where to donate them, please see our website: https://raise.today
The money you donate here will go straight to Help Refugees so they can buy socks for those in need.
£5.50 will buy 3 pairs of men's winter socks.
£11.00 will buy 6 pairs. Any amount you give will help!
Thank you for giving someone the gift of warm feet this winter!
UPDATE! By Christmas Eve we had surpassed our target of 1,000 socks, and now with a few more post Christmas donations we have the grand total of 1,255 pairs of new socks! Many of these socks are already on the feet of refugees in Calais, Syria and Greece. We continue to accept donations of socks and other items which we send on to our partner charities, so if you can donate please do not hesitate to contact us!
