Obviously not everyone can do this but the most effective way to help is to donate via bank transfer to MOOL’s Business Account: 80-22-60 14196360. This means all your money will go directly to helping people in need. If you can do this, especially if you can set up a standing order that would be amazing!
We are still collecting aid to send out to displaced people across the globe. Most recently, we have secured safe passage to the Arsal camp on the Lebanese/Syrian Border, by partnering with the amazing Edinburgh Direct Aid.
As the French authorities have announced the destruction of the camp will begin next week, we are also working closely with various partner organisations to ensure those who are losing their homes will at least have bags to take their belongings with them and sleeping bags to keep them warm. We are also trying to ensure that the more than 1,500 unaccompanied children from the camp have enough phone credit to keep them safe, in a bid to prevent so many of them going missing like they did during the last demolition. (We are happy to pass on donations but to donate directly to provide phone credit please click here
Our focus is on collecting the following items:
Our current list of needs includes:
Good quality, clean clothing
Warm or waterproof coats
Strong weatherproof shoes
New, unused underwear (see our ‘Drop Your Pants’ initiative for how you can host a Drop Box)
Sewing machines & thread
Wool & knitting needles
Nappies & sanitary goods
Baby carriers (not prams, please)
Tents, tarps & roll mats
Blankets & sleeping bags
Strong bags & rucksacks
Boxes, strong bin bags, tape
Stationery, crayons, paints, brushes, pens
As mentioned previously, financial donations are always a more effective and efficient method of getting help to where it is needed most.
Possibly one of the easiest way to donate is through Easyfundraising.org.uk. Mool can get money as you shop! You can sign up at https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/massive-outpouring-of-love-mool/
You can donate via Paypal using paypal.me/mool – If you want to donate a specific amount, just add that number to the end of your link. For example, use paypal.me/mool/25 to ask for £25.00 (but fees will be deducted from your donation).
More effective is to donate via bank transfer to MOOL’s Business Account: 80-22-60 14196360, which means all your money will go directly to helping people in need.
If you’d like your money to go to a specific item (sleeping bags, phone credit, fuel), then please indicate this in the notes/reference section when you donate.
If you do donate it’d be really helpful if you could take a moment to tell us about it. We promise not to use the information to badger you for more, and we certainly won’t pass the information on to anyone else but it would help us to keep track of the money.
