Support Refugees in Limbo

On 22 April 2017, Same Skies will be launching a crowd funding campaign on chuffed.org to raise additional funding for the set-up of two refugee-led community centres in Malaysia. It is a project that truly empowers refugees in transit to live with self-determination and dignity. The plan is to start in June 2017 and support two refugee groups for a duration of 18 months, until they can operate independently.

Although we have already secured some funding, we will need to raise additional monies through widespread crowd funding to make this project a reality and to ensure that it is the best it can be.

Crowd funding campaigns are time consuming, and a majority fail, at least in part, due to a lack of promotion at the outset. Thousands of crowd funding campaigns are launched every day, and it can be difficult to stand out from the crowd. In an attempt to ensure that our campaign gets off to a strong start we have setup this Thunderclap campaign.

It's best to think of Thunderclap as an "online flash mob". If more than 100 people sign up, ThunderClap will automatically post a message about our work on either your Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr account the day our campaign launches.

It only takes a second to sign up and it will really make a difference in spreading the word about our campaign. Thunderclap is completely safe to use and will only post a single message on your behalf. After the launch Thunderclap won’t post any additional messages or spam.

If you believe in spreading positivity and helping to better our world... 

Please join this ThunderClap and be a part of something bigger than yourself. United as one, we can make a difference!

  • Campaign Pre-Launch!!!

    April 20, 2017

    Dear friends,

    Thank you again for supporting our campaign by joining this ThunderClap!

    WE HAVE SOME EXCITING NEWS:

    Our fundraising campaign has been pre-launched, and we are honoured to share it with you first - before the official launch on Saturday!! Please have a look at it here: https://chuffed.org/project/sameskies


    We would like to ask you for two things:

    1)   To get it off to a good start, we have set a pre-launch target of $1000 that we could like to raise by Saturday. Studies have shown that people are more inclined to contribute to a campaign if they see that others have already supported it. Please make a donation, even if you can only spare a few dollars. Imagine - we are 132 supporters in this group… if everyone puts in $20, we are able to raise $2640 in two days!!

    Thank you so much for your kindness!

    2)   Please provide your feedback on the campaign. You can comment on the layout, the photos, the video… Any input will be greatly appreciated! Please email it to julia.frei@sameskies.org. Thank you!

     

    Thank you again for supporting our work! We couldn't do it without you!!

    All the best,

    Julia

    Dear friends, 

    I would like to sincerely thank you for supporting our campaign!
    We have already exceeded 100 supporters, which means that our message will definitely be blasted on 23 April! That's awesome and we couldn't have done it without you! Thank you! There is no maximum on supporters, so please keep sharing the campaign widely. The more, the merrier! 

    In addition, we have translated our ThunderClap into German to reach our European supporters. 42 people have already signed up for it but we will need your help to reach the minimum of 100 supporters required. Please sign up for it here: https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/54923-hilf-gefl-chteten-im-transit?locale=en.
    Thank you! 

    If you are interested in receiving the Same Skies newsletter, please sign up for it on our website www.sameskies.org (in the footer) or send us a message with your email address to connect@sameskies.org. Thank you!
