Do you ever think about making a difference for humanity?
Or spending more time doing something you love?
What about combining the two – sounds pretty good, right? By joining Team UNHCR, you can do more of the things you love while taking action for an important cause.
All it takes is 3 easy steps. In about 15 minutes, you’ll be on your way to making a difference for refugees around the world.
Here’s Elle with a video explaining how to join Team UNHCR and start fundraising for humanity:
Here's what some of our team members have done
Students and academics from Deakin University will be fundraising and donating to the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) during trimester 2. Please join us!
I've been doing the Love Your Burrito Challenge - my adaptation of the 'Love You Spouse Challenge'. On the 7th day I'm asking anyone who enjoyed it to donate.
I’m bringing together budding musicians to share their dulcet tones, at a deliciously intimate house concert.
Between November 1st and June 20th I will be photographing and raising $5,000 to assist with the Iraq Crisis.
In order to raise funds for the Syria Crisis I am going to be cleaning up a popular beach in Sydney and for every $100 I raise I will do this for 2 hours.
A music festival at the Red Rattler, Marrickville. 6 bands, 1 choir, guest speakers and Mexican Food. All proceeds directly to UNHCR. 10th Dec 4pm-11pm
We found a new apartment! We are organising a housewarming party (date is not confirmed yet!) to celebrate.
We stand together #WithRefugees. Stand with us. We #RunForRefugees. Run with us.
I'm running the Melbourne Marathon on 16 October in support of Australia for UNHCR.
Here I go again then. Putting on my running shoes for a worthy cause whilst simultaneously hanging on to my youth.
Do more of the things you love and help people all over the world. It’s that simple. Just choose an activity and get started. It’s your choice – maybe there’s something you’d like to do more of, or a hobby you’re already passionate about. Which activity will you pick for your fundraiser? Here are some of Team UNHCR’s favourites:
Sydneysiders have been joined by participants from all over the world, elite athletes rubbing shoulders with locals to run, walk or watch the 14km race from Hyde Park in Sydney’s CBD to the finish at spectacular Bondi Beach.Learn more
