Winterisation: 'The 12 Days of Giving'


It wouldn’t be Christmas without the addition of some catchy carols to help get you into the festive spirit. Perhaps you’re already familiar with the tune, ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’? If not, the song is about someone who gifts their loved one with an assortment of presents – pretty nice, right?

Well this year, we’ve decided to take the message of the carol and turn it on its head, so rather than ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’, we’ve decided to celebrate ‘The 12 Days of Giving’.

Over the next 12 days leading up to Christmas Day, we – with the help of you, our Movers – will raise funds to put towards specific items that our residents in and around the camps on Lesvos and Samos are in need of this winter.

Each day will represent a different item, for example, on day five, we will allocate all invested funds towards tarps.

So, let’s get into the Christmas spirit and spend the next 12 days giving, sharing and empowering the residents of Kara Tepe, the Olive Groves and ‘The Jungle’.
