Our Story

This is McKay, Lyla, Cubby, and Bennett Eyre

 

Our parents showed us an email from my Aunt about some refugees in the Oinofyta camp in Greece who are outside with no heating system and need help. As we figured out there were refugees out there in the cold, we thought that they needed help from us. Many of the refugees are children and we thought it would be cool (with some encouragement from our parents) if we could do something to help those children there.

 

There are 178 refugees at the Oinofyta camp including 47 kids under the age of 5, several newborn babies and one pregnant woman. It is getting into the low 30s at night and even colder as we head further into winter. We want to help them get a warm place to sleep as soon as possible. Right now they're outside in tents trying to huddle under blankets to keep warm. So we are raising money to build a building for them that has a heater. The plans are already done and they just need a little more money to make it happen.

 

In order to raise money, we are inviting you to a Children for Children presentation at our home (3 Lullaby Cir) on Thursday December 22nd at 5:30 where us kids will share with you three stories of different refugee families with pictures that were provided to us by our Aunt's friend who works directly with the camp and has been there. We will also have refreshments home made by us.

 

We have a goal to raise $2,000 and will take whatever amount you can give from pennies to thousands of dollars :-). When you donate we will double the amount you pay with matching funds from a generous donor so if you donate a dollar you are actually donating 2! We know the money will go directly to this cause because our trusted family friend is the one making it happen. It would be wonderful if you could come to our fun presentation. Please let us know if you will be there. And even if you can't come (we know it is a busy time and last minute), you can still be involved by clicking on "Donate Now"

 

Many of the refugees are kids like us, and we believe we can make a big difference in their lives. #LIGHTtheWORLD

 

Love, The Eyre Kids
