Share your gratitude by supporting refugees this holiday season.

All too often, refugees are seen as a faceless influx. But each refugee is someone’s daughter, son, mother, father, friend – Someone forced to flee their homes to save their life or their family’s lives. Their journey is long and full of the possibility of danger.

During the holiday season we join our loved ones, consider our good fortunes and share our gratitude.

Share your gratitude by helping to share a refugee’s story.

When we hear a refugee’s story, we hear a story of great resilience and true grit. And, as they try to rebuild their homes and their lives in a new language and culture so different from their own, their story continues.

You can help make a difference in how refugees are seen around the world.

Help us rent camera equipment to document a story

We are an organization led entirely by committed volunteers. However, often we are unable to document a refugee’s story, because we do not have sufficient equipment. Your donation will enable us to record a refugee’s story on film so that we can reach a wider audience and show more people the person behind the term “refugee”.
