The UK Red Cross has reported that the British public has been “overwhelmingly generous” toward what has become the biggest refugee exodus seen in Europe since the Second World War. 

Response to the Refugee Crisis Appeal has garnered offers of everything from flapjacks to “seven cubic meters of trainers” which, I believe are lots of shoes!
A 40-bedroom hotel in Devon donated its space and someone gave their holiday home in France to house a refugee family.

Red Cross telephone lines have been inundated with gifts of every kind, and they are trying to funnel donations of coats, clothes and shoes to those other charities that can quickly get items to people in need.

Meanwhile businesses have also backed the appeal. Companies such as Tesco, HSBC, Barclays, GSK, AstraZeneca and Thomas Cook Children’s Charity have donated hundreds of thousands of pounds, while soccer fans in Scotland, the Scottish government and cities like Liverpool have also helped boost funds.

What always moves me about situations like this is the amazing goodness that exists in people. Each, doing what they can do. 

I am especially aware of the companies that are giving away what otherwise would be profits to their shareholders. Businesses are often given a bad rap when it comes to generosity, but clearly there are many businesses that have a caring and generous mind-set that directs their actions in times of crisis.

According to experts, the U.S. probably won’t have an influx of any of these refugees for a year or more. But, in the interim, Europeans and especially the Brits are taking care of business, thinking not of themselves, but of those in trouble. 

There is a ocean of goodness in each of us. Some people go through life and only dip a toe in, but others jump in with both feet and splash around.
