Together, as Americans who believe all children should be treated with care and compassion, we can send a message to refugee children:
you are not alone, you are not forgotten, your life matters.
Add your name to this letter that will be given to a brave child:
We know the journey here must have been very difficult- you are so brave! When you are feeling afraid or alone, know that so many of us are thinking of you. We have such bright hopes for your future. You deserve a life of happiness, health, and safety.
What will happen to these letters?
We will collect letters through this website and as site visits are arranged to temporary facilities and shelters housing refugee children, The California Endowment will print them out, translate as many as we can, and bring them to the children directly or via other local organizations and service providers. We hope our messages of comfort, compassion, and kindness will lift the children’s spirits and remind them that they’re not alone and we have so many hopes for their future.
Will my letter be posted publicly on this site?
All letters will be subject to moderation before being publicly posted on this website. We will post letters that refrain from politicizing the issue and send positive messages of support and compassion to these brave refugee children.
