Curious Arts Festival and social network Vero have partnered to spread the message of love at the festival and beyond and raise badly needed funds for Help Refugees.

To take part in “Choose Love. Send A Poem”, festival goers can visit the New River Press tent which is led by celebrated poet Greta Bellamacina and in return for a donation to Help Refugees, a professional poet will be despatched to recite a love poem to the recipient of your choice; a lover, pet, significant other, friend or family member.

All proceeds from the sale of poems will go to Help Refugees and the poet will present each recipient with a copy of the poem to keep.

If you can’t attend the festival, you can get involved by downloading Vero and making a donation to Help Refugees with Vero’s “Donate Now” feature and receive a poem via email.

To make a donation via Vero, download Vero for free from the App or Google Play Store, follow Help Refugees and tap on ‘Donations’ where you can then make a donation via Apple Pay or a credit card.  Vero will be matching all donations made on Vero up to the value of £20,000.
