Turning headlines into hope

Donate automatically for every hysterical headline about refugees, and convert media hostility into aid. Even if it’s just 10p, your small change can change the story.

A “uniquely aggressive campaign

That’s how the UN describes the treatment of refugees by the UK’s right-wing media. So, just as 80 million refugees around the world struggle to survive, to protect, feed and educate their children, these publications spin a much more menacing story. Now, It’s up to us to change it

Meeting aggression with aid

With #HopeNotHeadlines, you can automatically donate to refugee causes whenever a publication of your choice tweets about them. New fear-mongering slogan? Better healthcare for refugees. Another sneering soundbite? More refugees in universities. Together, let’s convert aggressive column inches into life-changing aid.
