A Scarf for Life 2023

For the tenth year in a row, Save the Children’s "A Scarf for Life"-campaign in cooperation with BRIGITTE magazine will raise funds and support for Syrian children affected by the ongoing war. Almost six million children have been born into the conflict and don’t know what peace feels like.

Join our celebrity supporters by buying, knitting and wearing the Scarf for Life, designed by fashion designer Guido Maria Kretschmer, as a symbol of hope and solidarity.

With each scarf and wool set sold, 10 Euros are donated to Save the Children's work in Syria and the neighbouring countries. The donations from last year’s campaign went into our Child Wellbeing Assistance programme in Lebanon, which supports Syrian refugee families with basic supplies and cash transfers so that parents can ensure their children grow up healthy, attend school and thrive.

Thanks to your support, the 14-year-old Majida* no longer has to sell tissues on the dusty streets, and the 7-year-old Wassim* can go to school.

Come together for Syrian children and join us for this year’s Scarf for Life campaign.

You can do it! My dad always told me that I can do anything. But not every child has the same opportunities– the Syrian children need our help. I deeply believe that great things can happen when we come together for a good cause. That's why I'm wearing the Scarf for Life in the tenth year!
