Make a 2020 Pledge for Refugees

Virginie Goethals / Fundraise for RUN

I will be taking a soul holiday and running Hong Kong Four Trails Challenge, a 298km self supported outing in my beautiful Hong Kong. Nothing is impossible if you try hard enough, love enough and fight enough. I am dedicating this adventure to my (refugee) family and all its beautiful friends and I am grateful to be able to start, as running, running free, running healthy is a precious gift that we can never take for granted. This journey would not not be possible without my precious coaches David Jacquier and Justin Andrews, and my crew led by Brenda Sawyer. Please do support as together we can make a difference and stand #withrefugees.

Join me in making a pledge for refugees in 2020. Make a small donation of $20 or even $0.20 and use the comments section after the transaction to tell us about your pledge!

About Make a 2020 Pledge for Refugees

It's easy to feel overwhelmed reading about the global refugee crisis - the numbers are huge (and growing) and the issues are complex. But each of us has a role to play in supporting refugees in our community. That's why I invite you to join me this year in making a pledge to support refugees in 2020.

You can make a pledge in three easy steps:
  1. Make a small donation of $20 or even $0.20 using the donation button to your right.
  2. Use the comments section (which appears once you've make the transaction) to tell us about your pledge.
  3. Share your pledge on social media using the hashtag #refugeepledge2020 and encourage others to do the same.

Our RUN participants will also be joining to share their pledges here.

Here are some ideas to get you started, but we encourage you to come up with your own!
  • Pledge to become a monthly donor of an organisation serving refugees
  • Pledge to support a refugee-led business
  • Pledge to write a letter to your local newspaper or government officials about the treatment of refugees
  • Pledge to host a movie night with your friends to screen a documentary about refugees
  • Pledge to use your social media platform to share educational information about refugees every month
What will you pledge for refugees?
