RIDERS FOR REFUGEES

JACKET DROP OPERATIONS

Riders for Refugees provide warm clothes to people in need all over Europe. The next jacket collecting campaign will last the whole month of October 2017.
Go to JACKET DROP CALAIS

JACKET DROP CALAIS

Calais has been in the heart of the refugee crisis for a while now. It’s naturally that it became the first focused destination for riders to give their extra warm clothes. We have been providing help with local-profits on a regular basis for the past couple of years now.

Go to JACKET DROP BALKANS

JACKET DROP BALKANS

The Balkans are a very harsh place for refugees to be stuck in the winter. The weather is very cold and the local populations and institutions aren’t always welcoming. Last winter we delivered over 2500 high quality jackets there. We need to bring even more jackets this year!

Go to JACKET DROP ITALY

JACKET DROP ITALY

Italy is a key entry point for refugees coming from the Mediterranean Sea. This year we will be delivering jackets to local non-profits there so refugees can be well prepared to go across the Alps and towards coldest parts of Northern Europe.

WINTER IS COMING!

About us

Riders for Refugees give their warm clothes to those in need

Riders for refugees is about the snowboard and winter sports community pulling together to help those caught up in the current refugee crisis in Europe. We collect warm clothes and deliver them to people coming to Europe to find refuge and eventually facing very harsh winters. It all started in 2015 with former Onboard magazine editor and photographer Danny Burrows. He gathered warm clothes from the English snowboard community, filled as much as he could in his car and drove it all to Calais. Since then, riders from all over the world have jumped in to help prosper his genuinely kind and generous actions.
