Campaigning to Reunite Families is organising a Christmas event to raise awareness of the impact of the cruel immigration rules on children. At a time when families should be together, many are forced apart causing even more distress - especially to the innocent victims in all this - the children. Our immigration system is FAILING FAMILIES, FAILING CHILDREN and it is set to fail many more with Brexit looming.Wherever you are in the world, if you are a family affected by the UK family migration rules we want you involved.There are TWO parts to this event and you can do one or both:1 - LETTERS TO SANTA An exhibition of letters and art to Santa from children torn apart from a parent. The letter should ask Santa for a special Christmas wish - to let mummy or daddy be allowed to be live with them in England. The art should be whatever the child draws in relation to having a parent missing.PLEASE NOTE: DEADLINE We ask for you to send in letters or artwork by Friday 24th NOVEMBER on jpeg on email or on hard copy by post.OTHER DETAILS: Please add the FIRST NAME, AGE AND CITY/COUNTRY of the child - but no other personal details. If you have a baby, you can also send a photo of your choice if you wish rather than a letter and add a letter to Santa over the top if you are able to otherwise a simple letter to Santa written as if it would be your baby's voice writing is ok.This is something ALL divided families with children can get involved in regardless of where you are in the world. This is a chance for you to be part of the change.2: KIDS CHRISTMAS CAROL There will be a special divided families Kids Christmas Carol event that will be held in public involving children affected by family migration rules. Some well known Christmas carols will be amended to reflect the situation they find themselves in.The idea is to show the public that there are innocent children in the centre of inhumane immigration policies and by doing an event at Christmas it is a more poignant time to highlight that these children are being cruelly torn from families. We want those of you especially those with children who are affected by the rules to join us as we show the public that this is happening to families and innocent children. It will be a beautiful, sad, poignant and powerful event that the press will find hard to ignore.The Letters to Santa will be displayed in an exhibition alongside the Christmas Carol event so as well as hearing the impact on children, people can see and read it too.UK BASED DIVIDED FAMILIES WE NEED YOU TO STAND WITH US. PLEASE REGISTER YOUR INTEREST IN ATTENDING THE EVENT IN LONDON AT THE EMAIL BELOW AND WE WILL SEND YOU MORE DETAILS. PLEASE NOTE THERE WILL BE SOME MINIMAL PREP TIME NEEDED FOR THE CHILDREN TO LEARN SOME SONGS VIA ONLINE VIDEO SO PLEASE CONTACT US AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE.IT WILL BE FUN, IT WILL BE IMPORTANT AND IT WILL BE POWERFULWe are working with JCWI and talking to a few charities who are interested in being involved too and intend for this to attract alot of publicity. The event location will be in London and we are arranging for basic transport costs to be covered.For more information on any of the above and to sign up please email the campaign team at: [email protected] send hard copies of artwork and Letters to Santa, please address to: Letters to Santa, The Policy Team, JCWI, 115 Old Street, London, EC1V 9RT
