Untitled 4Today I had a Facetime with a school in Kamloops, British Columbia. It lasted about a half an hour. All of the people on the other end of the call were very nice and earnestly listening.

We talked about their postcards, and they asked me about mine, and how the whole Any Refugee project started. And, at the end of the call, the entire class held up their postcards for me to see. The postcards they had made were every nice, fully colored in with colored pencil, and behind that, a neat pattern.

It was a very cool little chat that the 15-20 students had with me. The teacherĀ and students asked good and thorough questions. Overall, the call was very respectful and calm, although my camera was frozen and glitchy.

It’s a new school year. We have a school to go to, but millions of Syrian kids don’t. Please, send a message of hope and let someone know they are not alone.
