1We Blanket Campaign: counter on 195 blankets!
In the winter of 2012 we gave 1,464 people a warm blanket.
Help us to protect many more people this winter!
A horror winter is coming up at the end of this year! At least, these are the predictions. But what is ‘horror’ if you have an isolated house with central heating? It’s totally different in Bangladesh, where the cold winters cost hundreds of deaths a year. The only heat source the most Bengali have, is a homemade fire of burned tires, plastic and other waste. Therefore also this year 1We - One World Experience takes off with the 1We Blanket Campaign. Our goal: to surpass last year’s number of 1,464 blankets to protect as many people as possible from the cold.
Where the tropical temperatures in Bangladesh in summer rise up to 45°C, they drop just as hard to below 5°C in the winter. Combined with the high humidity and the bleak wind this causes an extreme cold wind chill factor; something the Bengali people, without heaters or isolated houses, are unable to withstand. Early in the evening you smell burned waste everywhere around you. In the absence of stoves, everything they can find during the day ends up on small fires. Once burned out, the cold strikes them down seriously. That’s why most deaths occur at night.
Make the difference
By donating a 1We Blanket you will make the difference between life and death. With every blanket we are able to distribute, we protect a life during the harsh winter months in Bangladesh. Moreover, the blankets are multi-functional: not only as a blanket, but also as a baby crib or carpet. If you make a donation now, the blankets will be distributred in December.
Protect a life in Bangladesh during wintertime!
With every blanket donated, someone will have a warm winter.
