Connecta Baby Carrier have teamed up with twelve other family businesses to raise money for Save the Children’s Syrian Crisis Appeal, giving you the chance to win several thousand pounds worth of incredible prizes at the same time in a very special charity raffle, organised by Firespiral Slings.
Thousands of children are currently believed to be trapped in East Aleppo, including children who are in desperate need of urgent medical care after being injured or suffering from illnesses which cannot be treated in the besieged area. They and their surviving family members are struggling to evacuate to safety due to failed ceasefires: civilians are living in permanent danger.
Those families who have managed to escape the conflict face a frightening and uncertain future. At a time where so many of us are enjoying special time with our friends and family, the contrast between our situations is painfully stark. Many aid shipments have been blocked by the Syrian Government, but charities such as Save the Children are carrying out essential work both in Syria itself and also with those seeking refuge outside of the country.
Save the Children has helped over 3.8 million people in the area. It is currently working around the clock, in sub-zero temperatures, to distribute blankets, food and emergency supplies for thousands of people. They have organized an emergency health team and six ambulances, with supplies to treat an additional people in need. They are also preparing child protection and education programs, to accommodate children at up to forty temporary learning spaces.
The raffle costs £10 per entry, with all donations going to the Save Syria’s Children fund.
A spectacular range of prizes has been donated by businesses and individuals – there are twenty-seven in total, including a Harris Tweed Charcoal Connecta with a range of accessories.
You can find out about the other participating companies as well as how to enter the raffle itself over at Firespiral Slings.
Thank you for helping us to support this incredibly important cause.
