Over the weekend, a group of blogging mums and dads decided to support Save the Children‘s fund-raising efforts by posting black-and-white images featuring children holding up placards saying ‘It could have been me/us’ and encouraging others to pledge £5 via SMS. If you'd like to read all the posts, Mummy Tries has gathered them all into one place. (Make sure you have tissues to hand).
At the same time, The Independent asked people to sign a petition asking the UK government to allow more refugees into the UK and to share pictures tagged #refugeeswelcome to show support.
If you've read my post on migrants v refugees and why it's important not to confuse the two or my comments in response to Katie Hopkins' remarks that they should just be left to drown, then you may appreciate why I'm doing an extra post ...
If you haven't donated or shared a photo yet, then please consider doing so. It could so easily have been us. Or you.
Thank you for reading. Thank you even more for donating and sharing messages on social media to show support and raise awareness.
