A personal little story to reinforce the sentiments in Open's article;

A friend of mine (a young woman with young kids of her own and a very busy life) decided she was gonna collect donations and drive a van over to Calais to deliver direct to the people there. She set a deadline of 2 weeks. In that 2 weeks she filled her van and 3 or 4 other vans came along with her, also loaded up.
