    Many Ways to Give

    We believe that giving is an incredibly personal experience – and that’s why people choose to give in so many different ways. But deciding how to give can also be an overwhelming experience. We’ve compiled some of the most common ways that people choose to support refugees and the American Refugee Committee. Please use the information provided as a guide but know that at the American Refugee Committee we remain open to new and different ways of giving.

    Some simple tools can go a long way

    Day 190

    Better Connected

    Changemakers 365 is all about doing the doable. It’s about opening our eyes to the opportunities to make an impact in a person’s life with relatively few resources – and making change each and every day of the year.

    Meet the women of Red Rama. Sisters Veronica, Claudia, Carmela and more have banded together to stop human trafficking, which plagues their communities in El Salvador where they work.

    These Catholic Sisters form a network of advocates, supporters, and friends who provide safe havens for the most marginalized and vulnerable people in the region.

    The Red Rama ladies jump in wherever they’re needed to help those in need. So for Day 190, we’re helping them for a change – with the tools needed to reach even more.

    Sometimes the best tools are the simplest – like a printer and computer! So we took Carmela and her comrades shopping to find the best tech tools to suit their needs.

    Staying connected and having resources at their fingertips is perhaps the most important thing these women can do to maximize their impact. Having their very own computer will make it that much easier to do what they do even more powerfully.

    How will they use their new tools?

    “For so much!” said Carmela. “We can print newsletters. Brochures. Things that the people we work with need. Anything! The world will be at our fingertips.”
