How you can help

Hestia Hellas is a team effort

 Help us be the change
we wish to see in the world!

We rely on community as well as international assistance. Get involved and make a difference for refugees and members of the Greek community.

We are always looking for volunteers, donors, and fundraisers. If you want to make a difference in the lives of others, now is your chance!

Hestia Sponsors

We need sponsors and fundraisers! We rely on a network of passionate, creative volunteers to work on our programs and raise money to fund our work.​​

Ideas: 

  • Sponsor a workshop. Raise funds to help us provide well-being classes and spaces to be creative, to build communities and friendships through fun and relaxing activities such as dance, art, music, and yoga. Sponsor a session individually by reaching out to your family and friends, or creating a go-fund me page, OR go to your local dance, yoga, or art studio, and ask them to jointly sponsor a class for our community members.

  • You will have the opportunity to became “class pen-pals” to share your creativity and passion and enjoy seeing the works from our classes in return.

  • Dedicate your special day proceeds (birthday, etc.) to Hestia, it will not only impact an individual’s life but also show the impact you have in society.

  • Run a marathon or participate in a sponsored silence challenge. Get your colleagues involved.

  • Contribute a small amount now. At Hestia Hellas, we believe that a little monetary contribution can go a long way.

Hestia Ambassadors

Help us raise awareness about our mission, who we help, and why we are involved in this work!

 

Ideas: 

  • Blog about mental health and how it affects different populations, spread the word about Hestia’s impact, and your own involvement in sharing these stories that desperately need attention! The more languages we blog in, the higher visibility we have, which means more donations and a bigger impact.

  • Help us to develop creative ideas about how to share the stories of our community members. How can we do this in a way that is creative, fun yet sensitive to their experiences?

  • Help us spread the word through social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) – share our stories and our images, and help our impact grow. The more awareness we foster, the more donations we receive, the more work we can do here in Athens.
