Bizzy Bags for Syrian Refugee Children

Update posted by Melanie Furniss On Sep 07, 2015

Hi everyone, thank you so much for all the amazing donations. Just a quick update for everyone. I've now placed an order for the bag contents, bags and tags. I should be getting the delivery in the next 2 days then the work really starts. I'll be busy making these up and adding your inspirational messages of support. Thank you once again for all your love and support. x

I’m disappointed I like this campaign . It seems to have a really useful idea for children . Can it not still continue as I’m sure there is a need.

Hi everyone, just a little update. I’ve been busy making up packs and tagging them with your personal messages all weekend. This morning i’m taking approximately 300 packs to the post office. Half of them are going to a contact in Hungary who has said they have hundreds of children in the camp near them. The other half is being sent to Kos Kindness group in Greece. I have also given around 60 packs to a lady who travelled to Nottingham to meet a lady who is travelling out to Greece in a weeks time. She has been featured on BBC news recently for the work she is doing out there. I’ll be spending the rest of my spare time this week making up the next big batch. I have an address for a mosque in Budapest where they are collecting and distributing donations so I shall also be sending a box there. Thank you again for your continued support. I will be closing the fund raising page today as I believe enough has now been raised to make enough packs up to make a diffe

Hello, well i’ve been really busy placing orders and picking out the right things for the bags. I wanted to keep everyone up to date with where their money had been spent and how, and how I was getting on. I will be posting updates on my facebook page. This will include pictures of the bags once they are made up with pictures of the tags so you can see your bags fully made up. I noticed a lot of people wrote their tag labels from their children and thought it would be good to pop pictures on facebook so you can show your children how much they have helped. If you keep an eye on my page - I will post regular updates. The link is www.facebook.com/bizzykidz.uk thank you xx

I have recently been liaising with a volunteer in Germany who confirmed that the bags would be an excellent idea. She said that when the families arrive the children have nothing to do which as most mums will know, takes a lot of attention and effort to keep them busy. She said there is nothing for them to do which often takes up a lot of the volunteers time. Hopefully our bizzy bags will go a long way to help :)
