Palestine Fundraising – Path of Hope 2018

I would like to take this opportunity to ask for your support for the Department of Social Work Care and Justice big fundraising event this year. We have been hosted by families in Palestine for several years now and our students have been offered amazing hospitality by some of the poorest families in the world. We want to offer something back bringing 12 young people over here for the Global Youth Congress that is the Big Hope 2 next year. The young people will be able to tell young people from all over the world, what it’s like to live in a refugee camp in the West Bank in Palestine, their hopes for peace and how the global community can support Palestinians rights.
Here’s a short video about it on Youtube with Michael Lavalette Head of Department and one of the students who has been one a previous trip.
We are building a laser etched segmented steel path where larger contributors can have their name, company logo or a message of hope on a piece of the path which will be on display at the conference and then will be theirs to keep and a symbol of what we hope to achieve. Bringing young people together and letting them show the way forward to the rest of the world.
We have less than 35 days to go on our Crowdfunder appeal and would ask you to think about helping in any way you can to help us reach the target of £25,000 we have to raise.
Can you think of any family, friends, small business, or people you follow on twitter and other social media sites with whom you can share and ask for a pledge. If they can persuade someone else as well then the sky’s the limit.
Thanks
