    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.

    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.

    Yesterday, we met Veliria. Today, we’re helping her kickstart her old business!

    Veliria used to sell basic foods and small wares out of her home, but eventually the demand on her family became too much. She was forced to close her doors.

    She needed some capital to generate a larger income for her large family.

    She has been making change in her community for years and now, as an inspiration, we wanted to give her a boost and restock the shelves of her store.

    Veliria’s small shop is now stocked with foods and goods such as sugar, coffee, tea, butter, flour, rice, beans, containers, soap, petroleum jelly and many other things!

    As Veliria provides services for her community, she will also be able to provide for her family – and continue to be an example of selfless care, love, and change.
