Support Refugees​

There are over 25 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 find 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 25 million people, but you can make a difference for one.

(NOTES: Prices and availability may change without notice.  If you buy through some of these links, a small amount will come back to help support our mission.)
