1,514 refugee families found safety and access to their rights because Mario shared his story in our film Hot Dogs on a Tricycle.
If one single story has the power to change that many lives, how many more lives could be impacted if more stories were told?
HOME Storytellers has spent the past 2 years building a warm and safe space where refugees feel welcomed and encouraged to share their remarkable stories of self-reliance. We like to refer to this space as HOME.
Our role is to elevate their inspiring voices while bringing incremental awareness and support to solutions that help refugees stand on their own two feet.
This holiday season, we are fundraising to close our $16,000 year-end financial gap. Your contribution will help HOME Storytellers continue to grow and share the stories that are increasing opportunities for refugees to lead independent and dignified lives.
To show our gratitude, we have prepared a special holiday collection of fine art prints for you to choose from. With these beautiful art prints on your walls, we hope you will always be reminded of the HOME we are building together.
Prints will only be available for donations made in the month of December 2020.
