Brexit testimonies

Dear friends,

As you may know, over the past six months I have been rather immersed in the worrying consequences of Brexit. A project close to my heart is Our Brexit Testimonies, a not-for-profit collection of testimonies by EU citizens in the UK, left in limbo in a country they love and thought was their home until the Brexit referendum happened. 
We hope to publish a book with our stories (my own included) which will touch hearts and change minds about us, as the tabloids and the current government have used us as scapegoats or mere commodities, bargaining capital.
Our varied testimonies, often sad and moving, at other times uplifting, will be compelling reading.  We intend to send a copy of the book to the negotiators and the decision and policy makers in UK and Europe to show the moving human stories behind the statistics. 
We are £2000 short of the  £6000 needed for publication. I would be so grateful if you could help us, as every small donation brings us closer to reaching this figure and begin publishing our stories.

Kind regards and thank you,
