A simple way to get involved, is to leave a welcome message or a message of support for refugees in Europe. If you would like to take part in this small act of kindness, please send us your message below and we share it with refugees during our activities.
Thank you for all your submissions to date, these are some of the messages we have received so far:
“Always remember that
I trust that you will do a much better job of making the world work for everyone when it is your turn as elders.
It will be your turn sooner than you think.
All my love and respect for all that you have been through but more importantly all that you are going to achieve.
I believe in you
Be sure to continue to believe in your self.”
