"We thank each and every one of the people who helped and supported us!" - team Movement On The Ground

We thank everyone who supported us and bought a MOTG bracelet to help raise money for our current Movement on Lesvos. You not only gave us, but the people on Lesvos, a voice.

Several well-known Dutch personalities were among those who supported us by posting a picture with their bracelet on social media. We give a special thank-you to Johnny de Mol, Laura Jansen, Davy Klassen, Laura Benschop, Sinan Can, Bert Kops, Melvin Manhoef, and Trijntje Oosterhuis for your creative and heartwarming posts on Instagram.

If you would like to purchase an orange bracelet to support all that we do, please visit our webshop. By wearing your bracelet, you raise awareness to the refugee crisis currently happening on Lesvos.
