Refugee Collection for World Relief Transcends Politics
Our world is currently experiencing what some have called the greatest refugee crisis in history, and it is more important than ever to stand with the vulnerable and help end the cycle of suffering. Martin Luther King Jr once said, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
As our team of Sevenly ‘artists and amplifiers’ have considered this, we’ve created an updated version of our “People Matter” Collection. This week, all purchases will benefit the work of World Relief as they care for refugees here in the U.S. and in other parts of the world.
World Relief is one organization that is working with love to help. Many of our Sevenly staff members have witnessed their work firsthand and served alongside World Relief volunteers and staff to deliver meals and other items needed by refugee families.
World Relief’s main mission is to tell the stories of those who have been affected by disaster, poverty and war -- and to share how World Relief is responding and enables others, like all of us, to join in. World Relief helps by welcoming refugees and immigrants to the United States, responding to disasters, serving displaced and persecuted people in the Middle East, unlocking hope for refugees, and partnering with churches to empower communities in Africa and Asia.
To love the immigrant is not to say that immigration should be open and unguarded. Indeed, some aid needs to be provided elsewhere for countries to be secure. And no nation is wise to let anyone enter: indeed, it is worth noting that the Statue of Liberty beckons those who are “…yearning to breathe free.” But all this should make none of us promote any less how important it is to care for the persecuted and the displaced -- in our own countries and abroad.
Leading by example inspires change in others and helps provide the peace and love that refugees need. Every dollar counts: we’ve witnessed it firsthand. When you support World Relief you’re supporting the displaced -- helping them find a safe haven to live their lives. Please join with us @Sevenly, share that you care, and create conversations.
