This winter we have found that there is an urgent need as 178 refugees (including 47 kids under the age of 5, several newborns, and one pregnant woman) remain outside in tents. With temperatures dipping into the low 30’s at night, they are freezing cold, and temperatures promise to decrease. As a result, women, children and families are suffering. A generous donor has started a project to shelter these families but they are in desperate need of $10,000 to finish the project. We have committed to raising $3,000 to help.
Just like last year, we will gather as neighbors and friends for a concert hosted by the children FOR the children in Greece, and the parents will pay to enjoy the talents shared at the concert which proceeds will go directly to the Oinofyta Camp in Greece. (More about how Children for Children concerts originated and how ours went last year back HERE.) Our concert doesn’t take place until the 21st, but WE WOULD LOVE TO START FUND RAISING RIGHT AWAY. So if you are looking for a good way to give this Christmas season, please help us raise the money this particular group of refugees is in desperate need for right now.
