A few days ago when i first saw a image on my Facebook News Feed about Aylan Kurdi,
the 3 year old toddler who drowned fleeing Syria with his family,
i immediately thought “that could have been one of mine”
His five year old brother and his mum also died trying to reach safety.
Aylan”s brother Galip was the same age Finn is now, its just heartbreaking.
The more i think about this poor boy and his family what they have been through just to get to a safe place without having to fear war!
Over the last 36 hours i have seen so much posts on my local selling sites regarding
organising collections of much needed Care Packages to be send to driven down
to the Camp in Calais.
The Sling Community have been in full force too asking for unwanted Slings and
Carriers to be send over to Kos.
I am eager to sort through our Garage and find that tent we haven’t used in ages along with a clear out of our shoes and clothes to donate.
I think its not about what or how much you donate if its cash, your time or clothes and other items but its more that you are doing something, raise awareness and keep those little ones in your thoughts because each one of them is somebody’s child!
You can have a read through this article from the Independent “Five practical Ways to help” to see what you could do to help.
Hold your little ones tight tonight because there are plenty of Families out there who aren’t as lucky as us especially Aylan and Galip’s Father who is mourning his boys and his wife.
I leave you with this video (and a little plea underneath it) which a group of Bloggers
(who only got together yesterday) created.
This is just the kick start to what will hopefully be a huge campaign #SaveSyriasChildren.
I know we can’t solve the problem but we can raise awareness and do small little things which will have a big impact all together:
If you want to help you could make a donation to Save the Children because every little helps!
