Bob Books supports refugees - An open letter from our Chairman John Brown

10th September 2015

I don't know about you, but we (the Bob Books team) have been following the current refugee crisis with a growing sense of frustration and sorrow at the plight of the poor people who had to flee from their homes.

We have discussed it at length and tried to come up with clever schemes to make a practical contribution, but rather than carry on talking amongst ourselves anymore, we have decided to raise some money now and hand it over to people who know what they are doing.

So we will be donating 50% of our total revenue from all our sales this week (00:01 Monday to 23.59 Sunday) to two organisations which we have chosen after some research and debate.

Hand in Hand for Syria are one of the few agencies working within Syria to deliver medical and humanitarian aid. 

MOAS (Migrant Offshore Aid Station) supports search and rescue efforts in the Mediterranean, providing support for migrants in unsafe vessels. They have saved over 11,000 people to date.

If you aren't planning to order in the next week, please do consider donating directly.

Best Regards

 

John Brown 

Bob Books Chairman
