Last winter we gave clothes. Now we’re giving homes.

BENEFITING: CHARITY UNITED
In November 2015 we founded Winter Clothes for Refugees to provide winter clothing to refugees as they passed through the Balkans while fleeing war-torn countries. Civilians and children fleeing war were exposed to the subzero temperatures of the Balkan winter, often without heat, shelter, proper clothing, or any way to obtain it.
Over the course of three months, we raised funds to purchase and distribute clothing and supplies to over 100,000 refugees. You can read the full story on the Huffington Post here.
As winter drew to an end, a new crisis unfolded. Political changes in Europe left tens of thousands of refugees, including thousands of babies and children, stranded in wilderness areas and sub-human camps throughout Europe; lacking necessities such as food, shelter, hygiene supplies, and the basics of survival.
We decided we were in it for the long haul. We would not sit by and watch while babies went hungry and children slept in flooded tents with muddy blankets.
We have now formed a 501(c)(3) nonprofit which accepts tax deductible donations. We continue delivering aid to civilians and refugees in need. Every donation received makes a difference in how many individuals we are able to help.
Donations made to this fundraiser will be used to provide aid on an ongoing basis to refugees and children fleeing war and danger.
