Many of us have good intentions about being charitable but need the nudge to act. The Choose Love pop up shop does exactly that, offering a physical space where you can find out about those in need and buy the products the urgently require, as you would in any normal shop – the difference being that at the till, every item is then sent straight to refugees across Europe and the Middle East. After successfully raising £750,000 at their pop up in Soho last year, the charity is back this year in London’s Foubert’s Place as well as launching in New York too.
Shop solar lamps, children’s shoes, warm gloves, mobile phone credit, emergency blankets, tents, sleeping bags and hygiene packs as well as new bundles for those with specific needs, like a mother-and-baby bundle. In the store you can not only see the items you’re buying but you can learn about why they’re so badly needed and where they might go. Do something practical to help refugees as at this two-floor pop up, or if you can’t make it to the shop itself you can find all the items at their online store choose.love.
