Being a blogger brings with it the unique opportunity to be a voice, a messenger. If there was ever a time when using that position to spread an important message, it’s right now.
I’m writing this post in order to spread the word about the plight of the children and their families fleeing from Syria. You would have been hard pushed not to have seen the photos in the news and on social media. As a parent, it’s hard not to be affected by these images and when I heard about this campaign, organised by a group of bloggers who were touched by recent events, particularly young boy, Alan Kurdi’s death, I wanted to help. The aim of the campaign is to encourage as many people as possible to donate to Save the Children’s Syria Appeal.
The message is simple: it could have been us and these hashtags say it all #savesyriaschildren #syria #help #crisis #war #children #hope #love #peace #refugeeswelcome #Refugees #charity #nochildborntodie.
There’s lots that you could do from the comfort of your own home.
Please don’t turn a blind eye.
Do Something to help.
Whatever you decide, don’t choose apathy.
#SaveSyriasChildren To donate £5 please text SYRIA to 70008
Please share this post with as many people as you can and help us spread the message.
