I've spent most of the day so far with my eyes filling up at the huge groundswell of people in my region of Scotland giving donations of food, clothes, toiletries, firewood and more, in an organised way, to support refugees at "The Jungle" in Calais. The name of this initiative? Massive Outpouring Of Love.
We are connecting with Calaid for their collection event at the beginning of October: http://calaid.co.uk
There is also an organisation called Kos Kindness which is collecting for refugees on Kos, Greece: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Kos-
This pouring out of hearts at the grassroots is happening all over Europe: not just donations of goods and money, but thousands offering a place to stay in their own homes, for example: http://www.refugees-welcome.net
Politicians presently seem happy to let people drown and starve, but good, loving people are everywhere. Please be one of them.
