Hi.  When I started Any Refugee at the beginning of 4th grade, I never guessed that it would turn into a big worldwide thing. The Jesuit Refugee Service made it possible for postcards to be delivered to refugees all over the world.  This is a picture of some kids in Kounoungu Camp in Eastern Chad that serves refugees from the Darfur region of Sudan. They are looking at the postcards they received!

People from all over the world have made postcards of hope. I talk to groups via Skype all the time and I would be happy to talk to yours, too, Just write me and I will help! Here are some kids in Ohio making cards:

And me?  I’m in 7th grade now.

I still live in Alaska, and I still care about refugees.

IMG_2593The US State Department wrote a very nice story about Any Refugee.  Thank you!  Keep the post cards coming!

The photo on the left is of some kids in Byblos, Lebanon reading the cards you sent!

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 teacher and students asked good and thorough questions. Overall, the call was very respectful and calm, although my camera was frozen and glitchy.
