I was sent an email about this from Refugee Week and I really like it. Its not a fundraising campaign but then again everything doesnt have to be!
The idea is simple people are invited not to raise funds, or make huge gestures, but to choose from 20 Simple Acts such as cooking a dish from a foreign country or watching a movie with/about refugees, which brings them closer to refugees.
Every Simple Act –will be contributed to on an online total at Refugee Week.org.uk so people can see what a big impact they are making collectively.
What I like about this is its a really clever way to make you connect with the organisation. I really like to cook so when I saw the idea of cooking a dish from a foreign country I thought, well I cook anyway, so why not.
Great name too. Simple Acts
Refugee Week is from 15 – 21 June. Sign up for your Simple Act Today
