We want to spread positive messages and stories to refugees around the world. We came up with the idea to make postcards in coordination with the organization, Any Refugee, started by a ten year-old Alaskan boy, William Scannell IV. We set up a postcard signing booth in front of our school, High Tech High and invited people to share a positive message that will be sent to refugees in 45 different countries. We successfully made over 200 postcards that are being sent to the organization, Any Refugee!
