Requirements

ERT-SAR are looking for a secondary logo to be used for fundraising. Something simple and that will be globally recognised.

On idea was like the http://www.cro.org.uk logo but with a gloved hand above and a child's/ refugee's hand below?

Or something like http://www.halotrust.org?

But feel free to let your imagination go wild!

Many thanks!
