Shop for a Good Cause
There are over 24 million refugees in the world today (according to the UNHCR). The numbers are overwhelming and they do not even begin to convey the struggles of the individual families who are forced to flee from their homes. (To learn more, or get involved with welcoming refugees in your area, check out World Relief.) Below you can shop for products handmade by refugees who are working hard to support their families while they learn a new language and culture. You may not be able to make a difference for 24 million people, but you can make a difference for one.
