We love going through our mail!

Vincent, thank you for the beautiful art.

Thank you for the grocery and gas gift cards! They make a difference.

Hooray for Fridays and beautiful opportunities to be and dance with friend! ...

Happy Halloween!
Well, not quite yet. However, we are busy prepping to make Halloween special for 700 refugee kids. There are a couple ways to help.

🎃Option #1 Donate $15 to sponsor a Halloween bag with a costume and activities to go to a local refugee. We have ghosts and ghouls 👻 who will assemble everything. We are including a good flashlight and a reusable bag that can be used over and over again by the families. The Give Butter link allows you to use Venmo or a CC. (link in profile)

🎃Option #2 Purchase Halloween items off our registry. They will be sent directly to us. (link in profile)

Both options are super easy and covid friendly.

Note: We usually collect costumes and have a large event to distribute them and celebrate but we are pivoting to keep refugees and volunteers safe. We appreciate your understanding.

We are working with several groups who provide sports/educational programming for a refugee children and teens, they are in need of gas cards for carpooling and picking up team members. We are also helping with gas cards that allow refugees to drive to the refugee goat farm. @utahrefugeegoats.

If you’d like to help, follow the directions in the graphic. Huge thanks to our Utah Refugee Connection/Serve Refugees community.

You got this week! Believe in yourself!
You already made it through Monday.
