Tracey Samuel runs bonniemob, a Brighton-based family business that designs and sells kids clothes around the world. Upset at the plight of the refugees in 2016 and keen to do something she decided to help Refugee Support by doing what she does best – designing and selling clothes.
Working with Selfish Mother, she created a charity collection that has raised almost £10,000 for refugees! (There are still some available and they make great gifts…). bonniemob is now working on another range for the end of 2018 where £10 or £20 from each item goes to supporting refugees.
This is a great story of how anyone can help refugees, just trying to do something can grow into something big and how everyone can benefit: the business, customers and the charity. What can you do to help?

You can listen online by pressing play above. Or you can download it by clicking on the little down arrow.
A better idea is to have our weekly episodes automatically downloaded to your mobile so you never miss one. You will need a podcast or podcatcher app.
On an iPhone: ‘Podcasts’ is already on your phone. Open the app, search for ‘Standing with Refugees’, click on our show (it has our red logo), then click Subscribe.
On Android: Download an app. We use Podbean but Podcast Addict or Podcast Player are others. Search for ‘Standing with Refugees’, click on our show (it has our red logo), then click either Subscribe or Follow.
Then, every Monday morning, our show will magically appear on your mobile and you can listen wherever and whenever you want. These apps have setting so that they will only download over WiFi so they don’t use up your data allowance, and they will remove the episode after listening so they don’t take up your memory.
