Children for Children Concert
We have found there is an urgent need for shelter for children (and families) in the Oinofyta Refugee Camp in Greece. As winter is setting in, 178 refugees (including 47 kids under the age of 5, several newborns, and one pregnant woman) remain outside in tents. With temperatures dipping into the low 30's at night, they are freezing cold; and temperatures promise to decrease. As a result, women, children and families are suffereing. Progress has been made to build shelter for these families (and future families who will come through), but they are in desperate need of $10,000 to finish the project.
We have committed to raising $3,000 to help.
We will gather as neighbors and friends for a concert hosted by the children. The parents will pay to see the performances and the children will donate the money they raise through sharing their talents to the in Greece and the Eyrealm Foundation has graciously agreed to match the donations raised by the children.

- 23 December 2016 04:04 Thank you SO much for all the generous donations! With your help we made our goal at the Children for Children concert last night. We are so very grateful that with these funds these children and their family will get the shelter they need...along with HOPE for the future. There is so much this camp needs, if you still feel inclined to give they will take all they can get.
