Raise and Give is the fundraising event at TeenStreet.

At TeenStreet, we love sharing the blessing and giving to people in need because God has given us so much. RAG is our way of sharing this blessing! Before and during every TeenStreet, we raise funds to support a good cause, usually within OM, that will positively impact youth in Europe.

Last year, we did this by raising approximately 75,000 Euros for the "Vocation for the Future" project in Kosovo. Thanks to your generosity, we have been able to make a difference in the lives of young people in Kosovo in a way that wouldn’t have been possible otherwise!

Hope for Refugees - TeenStreet 2019

At TeenStreet 2019, we will be raising funds through RAG (Raise and Give) for projects working with refugee teenagers and children in Greece, Italy, and Serbia. Currently the teams in those countries can only offer basic help like tea/coffee, simple games, activities, and laundry, but they want to do more. We need your help!

The money raised will help provide:

  • Backpacks, stationery, books, etc. and tutors to help with language learning.
  • New sports and art equipment and contributions towards places to use them.
  • Safe places where they can meet local teens and get to know Jesus, too.

We also want to hear from you! Is there an activity close to your home that you could organise to help refugee teens living near you? Come along to the workshop at TeenStreet, get some help to put a plan together and then present your ideas. At the end of the week, we will see which ideas we can invest in.

Whether you plan to run in the RAG race, perform in the talent show, or raise money in other ways, GOFOR IT— you will be making a difference!

Now that you know, how can YOU help? Try out your best tips and fundraise to bring Hope for Refugees!

Any money raised beyond the total needed for these projects will be used to fund similar projects in Europe. Thank you for getting behind this project – it really is bringing Hope to Refugees!
