Last winter we gave clothes. Now we’re giving homes.

BENEFITING: CHARITY UNITED
In November 2015 we founded Winter Clothes for Refugees to provide winter clothing to refugees as they passed through the Balkans while fleeing war-torn countries. Civilians and children fleeing war were exposed to the subzero temperatures of the Balkan winter, often without heat, shelter, proper clothing, or any way to obtain it.
Over the course of three months, we raised funds to purchase and distribute clothing and supplies to over 100,000 refugees. You can read the full story on the Huffington Post here.
As winter drew to an end, a new crisis unfolded. Political changes in Europe left tens of thousands of refugees, including thousands of babies and children, stranded in wilderness areas and sub-human camps throughout Europe; lacking necessities such as food, shelter, hygiene supplies, and the basics of survival.
We decided we were in it for the long haul. We would not sit by and watch while babies went hungry and children slept in flooded tents with muddy blankets.
We formed a 501(c)(3) nonprofit which accepts tax deductible donations: Charity United.
Charity United continues to provide aid to refugees, children, and civilians in need throughout the world. As of December, 2017, we have been active in Macedonia, Greece, Turkey, Nepal, Colombia, and Venezuela. We are currently looking into the refugee crisis of Burma and Bangladesh to assess needs and possibilities to help.
We continue to help children around the world, but we can only do this because of all of the support we have received and continue to receive. THANK YOU for being there.
Every donation we receive makes a direct difference in how many individuals we are able to help.
