World Refugee Day

Recommended Posts

I don't know if anyone knows but tomorrow June 20th is World Refugee Day. Even if you don't do anything on this day at least think or send a prayer (for those of you religious) to those refugees around the world.

 

There's a very short video from Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie:

YouTube - unhcr's Channel

You can also go to the website below to see how facebook is helping if you use facebook:

UNHCR - World Refugee Day: Giving refugees a hand on Facebook

Or the main site for UNHCR and WRD:

World Refugee Day | UNHCR

But in all remember how so very very blessed you are that you live in America and while we are here, think how many in need there are all over the world.

thanks for posting this calia.

 

my family and i were refugees...we escaped vietnam by boat and ended up in a tha refugee camp. it was a rough start for me as a baby (no healthcare, nutrition)...all my finger and toenails fell off...it must have been so hard for my parents (i now know how difficult since i am now a parents...shoot i freak when jack has a runny nose or funny poop).

 

every day we are so grateful for our lives and i am especially grateful and proud of my parents for taking the risk to escape vietnam and work their butts off in the US to give us such a happy childhood and so much opportunity.

Actually I was talking about the thread, thats what I missed yesterday. June 20th is today, WRD...got it!

Don't fret if you don't get the response you were hoping for, after all this is the best destination wedding forum not the best socially conscious forum. It's happened to me too. You tried to put it out there and that's all you can do. At least 2 of us heard you :)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
