West with the Night by Beryl Markham
“Did you read Beryl Markham’s book, West with the Night? I knew her fairly well in Africa and never would have suspected that she could and would put pen to paper except to write in her flyer’s log book. As it is, she has written so well, and marvelously well, that I was completely ashamed of myself as a writer. I felt that I was simply a carpenter with words, picking up whatever was furnished on the job and nailing them together and sometimes making an okay pig pen. But [she] can write rings around all of us who consider ourselves writers. The only parts of it that I know about personally, on account of having been there at the time and heard the other people’s stories, are absolutely true . . . I wish you would get it and read it because it is really a bloody wonderful book.” — Ernest Hemingway

tíc thanks you for your encouragement and support and for doing your part to help get emergency aid to refugees!
This year celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Night of the Refugee. With more than 7,000 participants spread over 10 cities throughout the country, it’s expected to be another memorable occasion. Where will the tic team be? In and around Rotterdam!
Together with the help of thousands of people, the charity aims to raise the biggest amount possible in order to provide more emergency aid to refugees and internally displaced people. This aid is badly needed with more than 68.5 million people on the run from war and violence.
By participating and while being sponsored, you too can help refugees in need. The more money you raise, the more emergency aid comes available for them.
About the Event
Participants walk a set route together at night in order to momentarily identify with the plight of refugees who flee danger at home on foot. (Of course, the charity provides amenities along the routes so it’s not as harrowing as the actual refugee experience). While those who walk the route are expressing their solidarity with refugees, they are also encouraging people to donate to the charity to provide emergency aid for refugees.
Are you interested in joining the tíc team for the walk? Contact us!
