We are Amber, Beth, San and Karen. All British 40-somethings who simply couldn’t stand by and do nothing as the biggest human crisis of our lifetime unfolded in front of us. And so, in mid-2016, Amber founded and registered charity Donate4Refugees to provide the most useful support to existing grassroots aid efforts. Money.

Our mission is to ensure every displaced man, women and child asking for Europe’s help is provided with the support they need to get back on their feet with dignity. That is to have a place to live, enough food to eat, clothes to wear, warmth, lighting and hygiene. Along with access to essential information, an appropriate education and support back to independence. We primarily do this by raising money from individuals and businesses to fund inspired humanitarian projects scoped and delivered by our official volunteer partners on-the-ground in Europe’s refugee hot-spots and here in the UK. And we petition for political change appropriately. We work #TogetherforHumanity to keep people and hope alive.
In 2017 we helped an estimated 24,000 refugee men, women and children.
By funding 92 grassroots projects.
Giving grants to 32 grassroots volunteer individuals and groups.
To provide clothes for those with few, (42%), food for the hungry (19%), and shelter and warmth (10%).
And we were at the centre of two very successful collaborative projects - Boots1000 and Love4Lesvos.
Our founder, Amber Bauer, was a Finalist for Entrepreneur of the Year 2017
We are an Official Partner Charity for Charity Week
