“I’ve always loved the quote ’a smile is the universal welcome.’ When I greet kids every morning with a genuine smile, they know they are welcome and that I’m glad they are there. Working in a school that makes inclusivity it’s core value means insuring each child feels welcome and safe everyday!” Cindy, a teacher at Living Stones academy, on why she welcomes. • What inspires you to spread welcome? #WhyWeWelcome #SpreadWelcome
Turning the tide on the global refugee crisis starts with each of us, but it doesn’t end there; it will take a collective movement to create a more welcoming community. • We created this video to celebrate this growing movement, and the many ways the West Michigan community is spreading welcome. • Help grow the movement by sharing this post in your Instagram story, and continue spreading welcome in the unique way only you can! • Video: @ryanhumm
We have a bold goal of raising 100K in 100 Days. It's ambitious, but we believe there is nothing we can't achieve together! • This support will allow us to continue serving refugee women and teen girls in 2019, and it will equip us to strengthen our programming to deepen our impact. Read the blog to learn more about the campaign and our plans for 2019. Link in bio!
