Elliot Smith of Blue Wire’s ArsenalVision podcast is fundraising for the Arsenal Foundation’s Save The Children’s emergency fund as part of a massive community charity initiative designed to help child refugees affected by the conflicts around the globe, including Ukraine, Yemen, and Syria. Rooted in uniting a community with a shared passion around a cause that in Elliot’s words, “could not be more deserving,” ArsenalVision’s charitable initiatives with the Arsenal Foundation are a yearly practice that not only helps thousands around the world, but showcases that a united community can bring about meaningful change in a real way.
To put it all in perspective, Elliot writes “All we do is record a podcast about a football club we love. That's it. And yet, there's this wonderful, supportive and vibrant community of people who have come together around the podcast, because we share the same passion.”
This year, ArsenalVision’s initiative is adding something even more special. “Our donation has actually helped us secure a VIP box at the Emirates, and it’s an awesome experience,” Smith continues. To celebrate the final game of the regular season against Everton, every £5 donation on the Just Giving page enters you for a chance to win a spot in the VIP box with members of the Arsenal community like Elliot himself, Tim Stillman, Clive Palmer, Andrew Mangan of Arseblog and more. It’s one thing see Arsenal’s final game of the 2021-2022 season in style, but it’s another contribute to an immensely noble cause at the same time.
