Welcome the Strangers was started by a few of us who wanted to find a positive response on 13th July 2018.
Another group trying to do something creative on 13th July is Top Trump Targets, co-founded by MP Stella Creasy. They are asking people to give money on that day to a wide range of causes. We are inspired by their original and creative approach, though our aim is more about connecting people.
At the time of writing we have no backing from any political or religious group – we simply hope that a few others will feel the same way as we do.
