    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.

    Space for More

    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.

    At Centro Arte Para La Paz, Sister Peggy has helped to turn one small art center into a proper tourist attraction. People from all over the region – and the world! – come to learn at the museum, see works of art in their gallery, and eat delicious meals at their cafe.

    The cafe is an important part of the center. Not only because it keeps visitors full and happy, but also because the profits from the cafe are reinvested back into the center. The more papusas and rice people order, the more art can be made!

    But they’re always running into one problem. “We don’t have enough tables and chairs!” said Sister Peggy. “If we could fit more people inside, it would help with our profits.”

    More tables and chairs to help keep this incredible place alive? No problem!

    We went out and purchased three long tables and enough chairs to almost double the amount of people who could sit comfortably at the cafe.

    The art center is a special place. And anything we could do to help more people share in the joy they create, the better!
