“This is the biggest refugee crisis in history – 60m people, world-wide, are displaced, half of them children – threatening both the stability of the Middle East and Europe, and our own sense of compassion, and the value we put on human life. Whilst the governments of this world still fail to come up with a solution to this problem, I am proud to do as millions of others have, and say ‘We see you, we hear you, we will not let you suffer this alone. We promise – help is coming’.” – Caitlin Moran

“I’m delighted to be a part of the British book world’s effort.” – Salman Rushdie

“I support this initiative with heart, mind and soul” – Ali Smith

“Buy a book, help save a life” – Ian Rankin
