In 10 days from now I will spend 10 days on the island Lesbos, Greece to distribute food and other necessities to refugees who arrive there. I will do this for the Dutch organization Because We Carry .
Ghandi’s quote “Be the change you wish to see in the world” is their motto, and hence this week’s quote drawing are his inspiring words.
Because We Carry works with rotating teams of volunteers who help those arriving on feeble boats on the inhospitable shore, by handing out dry clothes, deliver baby carriers for the long walking journey ahead, and supply the often exhausted people with food. They also aim to bring joy, and spark some hope and respect into this further desperate context.
As I realize very well that my efforts there will just be a drop in the ocean. That’s why I would like to invite you to contribute too, to join me and together create a ripple in the water.
You can help by donating. I will purchase locally what is needed most at that time. I will handle your contribution with care, and when not all money will be spent, the remaining will be donated to the charity work of Because We Carry with which they can continue delivering food and necessities to refugees in despair.
Please send me an e-mail when you would like to donate, then I will send you my account details.
