How it Works
1. Register, set, go!
First, register—it’s both easy and required. Then, learn about what it means to welcome refugees in your community and around the world. We provide the lessons and content guides.
2. Create your art!
This year, we’re asking students to channel their creativity by designing postcards that will be sent to young refugees around the world — we encourage kids to write their own welcome message on the back.
Make a change
Send your artwork to us. For each piece of art we receive, the Bezos Family Foundation will make a $5 donation—up to $1,600,000—to organizations providing humanitarian relief around the world.
Why the Welcoming Refugees Project?
Students Rebuild is teaming up with humanitarian aid organizations around the globe to inspire change through the Welcoming Refugees Project. Together, we’re teaching students about refugee crises, how to make our communities more welcoming and open, and how small actions can make a big difference.
Students focus on what matters most to them.
Students learn about the global refugee crisis and are inspired to help. Next, they create art to amplify the cause by making a postcard or other piece of art to illustrate why it’s important and to raise awareness for the issue. For every artwork we receive between now and June 9, 2023, a donation of $5 (up to $1,600,000) will go to programs helping refugees around the world.
How the money will help.
The funding students generate will support five organizations that are providing humanitarian aid and other resources to refugees around the world. See a snapshot of the projects below and find a full description of the organizations and projects on our partner page.
