Enter Shikari have announced their support of “Donate 4 Refugees” by acting as ambassadors for the important organization. The band explains the decision on their website:
“Enter Shikari is proud to support Donate 4 Refugees as Ambassadors, as we believe it is always possible to make significant help, no matter how momentous the task. While the refugee / migrant debate is complex, it is also, to a large extent, unimportant here; a person in need is a person in need.”
With their support, Enter Shikari are responding to a shameful trend of hostility against refugees in Europe. As Ambassadors, they have pledged to promote the organization’s work by “raising awareness, empathy and understanding of the challenges faced by refugees“.
“Donate 4 Refugees” is fighting to keep up the humanitarian help for refugees by giving 100% of their donations to grassroots organizations providing aid as you can read on their homepage:
“At Donate4Refugees we put humanity first. This is because every refugee man, woman and child is an individual with thoughts and feelings and hopes and ambitions. Because each person is as deserving as the next to receive our respect and be treated with dignity and humanity. Sadly, in Europe today, many refugees are instead facing hostility and a lack of humanity that’s both shocking and shameful.”
If you want to catch Enter Shikari live, you’re one lucky chap, cause the band will embark on a massive tour through the UK, Europe and the USA to promote their album The Spark and hang out with the fans while they’re at it.
