Tuscano's Volunteering for Refugee Crisis in Greece
Organized by: Darcy Tuscano
EVENT DATE Dec 28, 2015
This Christmas our family has decided to do something different and show our 5-year-old twins the true meaning of the season is to GIVE. We will be traveling to Greece spending 2 weeks volunteering with Syrian, Iraqi and Afghan refugees. Our focus is helping refugee children and bringing them a bit of comfort and joy on their journey to a better life. Katie and I will be helping the US-based organization "Carry the Future" fitting mothers/fathers with baby carriers (Ergos/Baby Bjorn, Mei Tais, etc)as they arrive off the ferry port in Athens. Max and Sebastian will be handing out "Kid Joy" bags to refugee children. Your donations will help us buy necessary items, on the ground in Greece, to create our "Kid Joy" bags. These bags will contain: small toys, crayons, drawing pad, stickers, balloons, snack bars, fresh fruit, water, juice box, socks, mittens, and a hat. The weather in Greece is cold and the journey north through the Balkans will be absolutely freezing. These families have left everything behind and arrive cold, hungry and frightened. Please help us show them the goodness, kindness and generosity of humanity. For every dollar we raise up to the first 1K--WE WILL MATCH. Help Us Help Them.
