Make a donation to Edinburgh Refugee Sponsorship Circle (ERSC) in your loved one’s name for Christmas this year!
If you donate £10 or more through our Chuffed fundraiser, we will send you one of our Happy Holidays cards, and an envelope for you to personalise. Why not send one to your loved ones, or secret Santa as a festive gift this season? This is the perfect way to support ERSC in raising funds to resettle a refugee family in Edinburgh, and give a great gift.
Inscribed within the card is the following simple but powerful message:
My gift to you is a donation to the Edinburgh Refugee Sponsorship Circle.
This will go towards helping a refugee family resettle in Edinburgh.
These festive cards will also be for sale at our Leith Walk Police Box event on 29 November. Come along for some delicious Syrian Falafel, a hot cup of Sahlab (a Syrian winter drink to warm your soul) and pick up some Edinburgh-made artwork.
If you are based outside of Edinburgh and want to be involved, or are looking for some friendly Scottish coos to compliment your Christmas gifts, then this is a lovely way for you to share your generous holiday spirit.
The card features iconic Scottish scenery, captured by photographer, Craig Mitchell. He is one of our many supporters who is donating his time and talent to help raise funds - check out the perks on our Chuffed page!
The UK resettlement programme is currently on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions. We are working as hard as we can right now to raise as much money as we can, so that a family can be resettled to Edinburgh when the programme restarts.
Thank you for helping us raise £9,000 now so that a refugee family can be celebrating the festive period with us in Edinburgh next year.
