It’s Amnesty’s birthday on Friday so why not use it as an opportunity to feel inspired.

Make Tea Not War

The sun is finally out and Amnesty’s birthday is coming up – we’ll be celebrating with a big tea party! We’re hoping you’ll join us by hosting an AMNESTEA on or around Friday 28 May. To get started, order our free tea party kit with posters, invite ideas and more.

The beauty of this fundraiser is that everyone loves a cuppa and cake! Tea parties are also a great way to introduce friends and colleagues to human rights. Ask guests to show solidarity by sending a card to the family of Ebrima Manneh, a “disappeared” Gambian journalist.

In the last few months, Amnesty supporters have held over 100 tea parties in workplaces, homes and schools across the country. It’s been great to hear about all the fun but we reckon there’s always room for more tea and solidarity!  

We hope you’ll join us to celebrate entering our 50th year by hosting an AMNESTEA this Spring. Why not pencil in a date today? Then use our tips and tools to start spreading the word. If you have any questions do email us at tea@amnesty.org.uk and we’ll be happy to help.



Get your friends and community together to drink tea and raise money for human rights. Sounds a lovely simple idea that local groups can do. When combined with cake and sending a card to a prisoner of conscience or human rights defender for our Greetings Card Campaign it almost becomes irresistable. Its probably enough to encourage me to bake one of my carrot cakes…

In the meantime if you want to check out the new AmnesTea initiative have a look at the www.amnesty.org.uk/tea webpage and order your AmnesTea kit. AmnesTea, so obvious it should have been thought of years ago…
