From the J.crew to the Refugee Heroine

Because fashion is superficial fashion chicks: the Austrian Madeleine Alizadeh (26) by DariaDaria is actually known for its Selfies and outfit posts. Now, she has no time for because it engages for refugees – and uses their reach into the net that sent.

Actually, the successful fashion blogger Madeleine aka DariaDaria, which itself has an Iranian father, just in the refugee camp in Traiskirchen, wanted to stop by to donate a few items of clothing. Now she’s almost daily there.

J.crew DariaDaria committed to refugees
To help that was her house of educated, tells Madeleine compared to the “world” in the interview. From a flying visit to the refugee camp near Vienna that had to impose a freeze on recording after disastrous conditions and 1500 refugees, then quickly became a daily visit. She hired the usual obligations of her work as a fashion blogger behind now. Instead, the girls changed the daily 61,000 people on Instagram, and over 15,000 on YouTube through the daily life follow their it-bag for travel bags full of donated items. Their followers they also confront new content such as asylum policy rather than fashion trends.

Mattresses and head scarves instead of fashion and cosmetics
She fights with their parents now for their new friends up to the limits of their endurance. This means practically: accommodation find and convey, call churning – with the Diakonie residential service, authorities and contact points. Unorganisiertem help need has developed into a structured aid plan. A Guide for those who want to support was established according to an open letter to the Federal Ministry of the Interior and a page with inventory lists and details will be updated constantly. Now she knows the children, who live with the given name in the detention center and know what their friends like snacking. “We urgently need travel bags, bandanas and tie” – Madeleine’s social media posts sound definitely different than in the past.

Our site talked to Madeleine personally:

Our site: What has moved you to do so, to support the refugees and to leave it not only at a donation?
Madeleine Alizadeh: “I went there only at the first visit and gave donations off at the main entrance. I thought to have helped. When I but then time went there a second and spent a whole day there, with the people there tea was drunk and talked, I noticed how many corners, it lacks in Traiskirchen. I started to exchange numbers, to make lists with things that need specific families, etc. Then I started to look for accommodation for specific families, helping them with authority because.”

How do you manage the balancing act between your job as a blogger, which can be sometimes pretty superficial, and your commitment for refugees?
Madeleine Alizadeh: “I think the one does not exclude the other. One must differentiate and say that just because I’m with the beautiful things of life, does not mean I do not also socially can engage. There are many people who think that all bloggers are chicks who look only in the mirror all day. It’s up to us to prove that it is not so. Of course it’s hard to go after it has dealt with existence problems of people, back to the “superficial” world but it also doesn’t help to lose yourself completely in the role of helper and to refrain from the luxury in one’s life completely. More humility is there often enough.”

What role do you see yourself now on the issue of refugee assistance?
Madeleine Alizadeh: “I see myself as mouthpiece and digital influencers, like many other topics also.”

There are also critics on your way? How to for example your followers react?
Madeleine Alizadeh: “of course! There are many xenophobic comments, I’ll sometimes berated and attacked, the range is wide. “The majority of the feedback is more than positive and I have a feeling that now more people help as before.”
