Written by Megan Carson

Today is the official World Refugee Day. There are events scheduled in many areas all throughout the week, with major events in major cities all around the world planned for Saturday, June 23rd.

If you've been wondering what you can do to participate in World Refugee Day, here are some suggestions:

1. Do a search for World Refugee Day events in your area, then show up! If you live in or near Salt Lake City, UT, or Oakland, CA, come find our TSOS Booths at each of those locations!

Here is a flier about an event in Salt Lake City TODAY:

2. Take a photo with a sign that expresses your support of refugees and then change your Profile Photo and come back and share it with us in the comments on Facebook.

Take your pick for your poster caption: Their Story Is Our Story, Their Story Is My Story, Welcome Refugees, Pray for Refugees, What If It Were You?, or be creative and come up with something original! We can't wait to see your photos! Use the hashtag - #TSOSRefugees.

3. Update your Social Media Profile Photo with this TSOS Frame. You can find it on our Facebook Page.


4. Turn your talents into a fundraiser! Our friends at Talent Pledge have made it super easy to be pro-active in a fun and meaningful way. You can pick your cause to donate to and you can pick your talent to share with your friends to donate to your cause.

If you'd like to choose TSOS, just go HERE to their Choose Your Cause page, then scroll down to the bottom, and in the SEARCH BAR, type in "Their Story Is Our Story" and Bam! We're all set!

WHAT WILL YOU DO?
We often hear the phrase, "Go big or go home!" But, maybe it doesn't matter so much if we go big or go small, just as long as we GO. So, pick something that works for you, find some way to do good in the world, and go out there and make it happen!
