IT'S HAPPENING, PRIME MINISTER.
Let us fill you in.
While you've been on holiday, a humanitarian crisis is developing in the Mediterranean.
Record numbers of refugees have reached the shores of the EU - that's a 750% increase on 2014.
Over 2,000 have died in the process this year.
But the number of Syrian refugees we’ve helped would fit on a Tube train. We think that’s shameful.
We want you to ACT NOW and accept our fair share of refugees from the human crisis unfolding in southern Europe.
“I don’t think there is an answer that can be achieved simply by taking more and more refugees,” you say.
We could disagree more. Our message is simple: those people need our help, and we must act NOW.
WHAT WE WANT TO DO
We want to raise the funds to place a full-page advert in the national press as soon as possible, signed by the people of Britain, to send the Prime Minister a powerful message to help refugees from the Mediterranean.
The more money we get, the more adverts we'll place until he gets the message.
It’s time to act. Pledge towards our campaign, and share our image below on social media to spread the message.
The time for looking away is over.
USING THE FUNDS
We will spend every penny on the national media campaigns until the Prime Minister gets our message.
We think spending the funds in this way, to reach as many people as possible, is an effective way of helping refugees in Southern Europe.
When our message has been heard, we will hand over the remainder of any funds to aid for those people.
Dear Prime Minister,
Act NOW and accept the men, women and children in desperate need of our help in the Mediterranean.
Signed, the UK.
