World Refugee Crisis

I still get quite a few hits each day from search engines from y’all that are looking to help world refugees, including those fleeing Syria. I found another link, this one through The Washington Post, that gives examples of ways that you can help. We put together a box and shipped it off to Greece of many items that were on the list from Ann Voskamp (see previous post). Have you all been sending prayers?

And, if you are wondering what this great migration looks like, here is a great link to the New York Times that has amazing graphics and photos to give you a better understanding.

Help Syrian Refugees

I’ve been getting a lot of hits on a post from a while ago relating to the efforts to help Syrian children. I don’t know if you all have been heartbroken this week as I have. I’ve been trying to figure out a way to help refugees without being able to do what I’d really like to do–house all tens of millions of them myself! Ann Voskamp posted this link yesterday to her blog and I’d like to share it with any of you whole feel as I do, hopeless but really wanting to help in a meaningful way. I will be shipping a large box to the Greek address of items that the refugees can really use right now. She shares a lot of ways in which to help, no matter the amount of time or resources you have to offer!
