About Us

Charity United is a 501(c)(3) US Public Charity that provides humanitarian aid to children and civilians in need – including, but not limited to, food, clothing, shelter, and education.

Originally founded by Megan Tucker in 2015 during the refugee crisis, Charity United continues to provide humanitarian aid, now throughout several countries of the world. We have collaborated with nonprofit organizations and grass-roots groups within Europe, Asia, South America, Africa, the United States, and Canada, and have brought humanitarian aid to children and families in Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America.

At Charity United we believe that all children in the world have the right to be cared for and the right to be protected – regardless of their race, nationality, or creed. We also believe that the care and education we give to the children of today will shape the future of our world.

Our Story

In November 2015 we founded the Winter Clothes for Refugees movement, to provide winter clothing to refugees as they passed through the Balkans while fleeing war-torn countries. Civilians and children fleeing war were exposed to the subzero temperatures of the Balkan winter, often without heat, shelter, proper clothing, or any way to obtain it.

Over the course of three months, we raised funds to purchase and distribute clothing and supplies and to assist an estimated 100,000 refugees as they passed the Macedonian-Serbian border.

As winter drew to an end, a new crisis unfolded. Political changes in Europe left tens of thousands of refugees, including thousands of babies and children, stranded in wilderness areas and sub-human camps throughout Europe; lacking necessities such as food, shelter, hygiene supplies, and the basics of survival.

We decided we were in this for the long haul. We would not sit by and watch while babies went hungry and children slept in flooded tents with muddy blankets. We formed a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, accepting tax-deductible donations: Charity United.

Charity United continues to provide aid to refugees, children, and civilians in need throughout the world – whether that be food, shelter, clothing, education, hygiene supplies, or any other of the basic essentials of life.

Every donation we receive makes a direct difference in how many individuals we are able to help.
