Bringing Light to Refugees in Greece

Organized by: Rebecca Johnson

THE STORY:

Next week I'll be travelling to Lesbos, Greece, to join Alison Thompson [who is profiled in HuffPo article "How You Can Help the Syrian Refugees"] who has years of disaster relief experience and is now helping the Syrian refugees arriving in Greece. "Thousands of people arrive daily in Lesvos. Many of the refugees walk hundreds of miles on foot, carrying their children, their elderly, and a few worldly possessions, to reach the Turkish coast of the Mediterranean. From there, they pay to board small, overcrowded, unsafe rubber boats (more than a few of which have sunk), which bring them to Greece." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/meimei-fox/syrian-refugees-solar-powered-lights_b_8401334.html

I'll be bringing medical equipment, lights and other much needed supplies, and staying for 2 weeks [spending Thanksgiving there] to help rescue refugees as they make the difficult & dangerous trip to land in Greece. I know so many of you wish you could come and help these people who have lost everything.

If you would like to support this mission and help defray the costs I am incurring to be there and bring these vital supplies, I would welcome your donation in any amount. Whatever you can give, I will put to good use on behalf of the refugees. Perhaps this could be a part of your holiday giving tradition?

Many thanks in advance for reading this and for considering a donation.
