choose love pop-up shop
Choose Love, the charity pop-up shop that raised £750,000 for Help Refugees, is back for 2018 and just in time from Christmas. Items like solar lamps, emergency blankets, sleeping bags and bundles designed for specific needs (like mother and baby products), will be on sale, with every purchase going towards a similar item for a refugee. Other services, like support for vulnerable women and lawyers to help people separated from their families, will also be available to buy.
With a space for talks, events and workshops on the top floor, the store will be split into three sections, with each area corresponding to a different stage of a refugee’s journey from survival (when they would need emergency blankets and food) to shelter (tents and sleeping bags) to future (educational materials and keys to a home). It’s all about making the experience of shopping in there more meaningful, so you can understand why your help is badly needed.
You also have the chance to win a genuine Banksy artwork as the man himself has put one of the boat sculptures from Dismaland into a raffle. Tickets cost just £2 and all you have to do is correctly guess the weight of the boat to become the proud owner of this priceless piece.
