The event is being held at the Choose Love shop at 32 FOUBERT’S PLACE, LONDON, which is the world’s first store where you can buy real gifts for refugees, contains practical items like tents, nappies and sleeping bags. But instead of taking them home, each purchase buys a similar item for someone who truly needs it.
This event is free but as always donations and purchasing of any item in the CHOOSE LOVE shop would be hugely appreciated.
In 2017, this new model of charitable giving raised nearly £1 million, it got the message out to over 200 million people, and it engaged celebrities, influencers and the public with a really positive message.
We believe funds should go straight to where they are needed most. So we make sure 100% of donations from the store go straight to supporting front line services.
Last year, the sale of life jackets from the Choose Love store raised £38,594, which enabled Refugee Rescue to assist 1,399 people braving the treacherous sea crossing from Turkey.
The Choose Love store was created by Help Refugees in partnership with creative collective, Glimpse. #helprefugees #chooselove #chooseloveshop
