Dear Comrades and Friends, We are still concerned about how some of the repressions related to the pandemic, and the health risks of the pandemic itself, might be affecting each of us and we want to reach out to check in with the broader EYFA Network to see what needs there are in terms of support that we could offer. In the meantime, until we figure all that out, we propose this on-going, albeit temporary, support structure.
*What is it?* CrisiFund is EYFA's small support initiative for our comrades, friends, network members. For groups that had to stop their actions due to corona virus, but still have expenses. Or, because of the crisis, started new activities or would like to do something and need money to continue or kick it off. For people, who lost their jobs or other sources of money, who can't afford the current way of living, who support other people in need, who suffer from capitalism even more...
To take advantage of our broad social network we wish to connect people from different parts of europe in order to exchange whatever we have - info and money, LOVE AND SOLIDARITY, poems and slingshots. Against isolation, individualism, and borders.
*Join us!* - let us know if you need financial support - no long explanation required, just short info how much. it can be you, your group, an initiative or somebody you know*. * at this point the budget we have is 3.000euro. the amount per group/person is 300 euro, mostly because we don't want to have to choose, set arbitrary criteria, vote - if the total amount is not enough we will offer each group/person less. write us in the case that you really need more - maybe we can find a solution. - let us know if you have money or other resources to share and how can we help you to reach out to others in need. - share with us your fundraising and crowdfunding campaigns so we can spread the word - via emails, on our website and twitter - share any materials produced in the pandemic time so we can all learn, maybe you want people to translate it? - let us know if there are other needs that have come up in your collectives/communities in terms of trainings/skills, online infrastructure, communication tools, etc.
This is a call-out we are sending now only to our wider newsletter list, please keep in mind the limited funds while forwarding. If anything changes you will be notified.
Apply for CrisiFund round2 by the 25th of June by writing to eyfa[at]eyfa.org.
