2015 Sabre Guitars Charity Raffle

IN AID OF THE SYRIAN REFUGEE CRISIS

I don't think there could be a more fitting time to launch this year's Sabre Guitars charity raffle. After the huge success of everyone's effort last year we're so excited to go even bigger and better in 2015 at a time where there are so many vulnerable people risking everything in the hopes of finding some semblance of a better life in the face of life-threatening odds.

As a result we're going to be running this year's draw once again in support of one of the world's most effective and vital aid organisations namely Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders - www.msf.org) who are currently engaged in the largest collective healthcare aid initiative to provide essential services to the huge number of refugees displaced as a result of the conflict with ISIL in Syria and Iraq.

MSF is a completely non-religious organisation and currently has active refugee clinics and medical centres in Iraq, Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan and even within Syria itself at enormous risk to its staff and volunteers providing free, much needed healthcare and medical services which would simply not exist without them. These efforts are entirely funded by donations and external, private support.

As with last year's raffle Sabre will be donating 100% of the profits to aid the syrian refugee crisis. There are a few changes from last year though. Firstly there's more than one prize! Secondly we're running this raffle in association with a couple of other awesome partners namely our good friends at EUGG, and our newest clothing and alt lifestyle merchandise partner Steel and Skin Custom clothing. Initially we'd intended to donate 100% to MSF however if we sell every ticket we're actually going to do something even cooler. If all 300 tickets sell, we will split our fund equally between donating to MSF and filling a massive Van (which Sabre will donate the cost of hiring) with tents, sleeping bags, clothes, food, basic health and medical supplies, nappies, toiletries and clean water. We will try over the course of the raffle to get other guitar and music companies to sponsor the van, and have their names printed on the side to further increase the amount of supplies we can bring. Myself and Bertie will then personally drive the van to Kos Greece and distribute the supplies right at the front line where they are needed most. We will document the entire trip with video and social media posts to increase awareness and shed a completely personal light on the situation faced by so many of these refugees. 

Since the raffle began we've had some incredible offers of support from many of the companies we work closely with who have donated awesome raffle prizes and also even sponsored the van in some cases!!! Huge thanks to Bare Knuckle Pickups, Allparts UK, Steel and Skin, Icon, Two Notes and EUGG!! The closing date is October 31st So get in early!!!
