We have a plan. You are a part of it.
Today’s refugee crisis is the worst humanitarian emergency the world has seen since World War II. Just as the Greatest Generation’s response to the holocaust defined them, so will our response define us.
We want to be remembered as the generation that chose Love over Fear.
As you read this, thousands are fleeing terror and war – forced from their homes into tiny boats with nothing but the clothes on their backs and the children in their arms. They will cross the sea, walk for days, holding tight to their families and their hope for safety and a future.
This moment in time is asking us a critical question. How will we respond? Let us answer: with compassion.
Compassion will guide us. Compassion is humanity’s North Star. It will always guide us out of the dark, back toward peace, hope and each other.
Should starving women be fed?
Should homeless babies be sheltered?
Should freezing men be warmed?
Should drowning children be saved?
If your heart says YES: Join us.
Join us in a circle of humanity standing shoulder to shoulder, together saying:
In a fearful world, I stand with love.
Our symbol is the compass. We vow to let compassion guide us, one step at a time.
