DO ONE THING in honor of World Refugee Day

There are more than ten million refugees in the world. What can just one person do?

As a reminder that each of us can make a difference, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees established World Refugee Day in 2001. Each year, June 20 serves as a reminder that many around the world are forced to flee their homes under threat of war, terror and persecution. But it also serves as a reminder that, collectively, we can make a difference if we each DO ONE THING.

During the month of June, organizations and groups around the globe mark the month of June with special opportunities to make a difference in the lives of refugees. RefugeeOne is encouraging everyone to DO ONE THING to positively impact refugees beginning new lives in the U.S. Donate through GlobalGiving on June 12 to have your financial contribution matched at 50%. Contribute a household item on our collection list so that we can set up apartments for newly arriving refugee families. Attend our housewarming event to prepare for a refugee family. Tell your friends, family and co-workers to DO ONE THING. When many DO ONE THING, the impact is huge.
