Tips for writing a postcard

  1. Keep your note simple. Sometimes the simplest messages convey the deepest sentiments of the heart.
  2. Recognize that refugees come from a variety of religious backgrounds. Verses from the Bible may not apply to their faith traditions.
  3. Avoid phrases like “Welcome to America.” The child receiving your card is studying at a JRS school outside of the U.S.
  4. Feel free to bundle cards in a package. You do not need to pay for postage on every card.

ABOUT

williamscannelljrsAny Refugee was founded in 2014 by a ten year-old Alaskan boy, William Scannell IV.

The idea for Any Refugee came from a story he heard from his dad about how people used to be able to send letters addressed to Any Soldier.  William took this idea and put it to work helping refugee children, to love and comfort them.  His school got involved and it just kept growing.

On October 15, 2015, Any Refugee became part of the Jesuit Refugee Service/USA.
