7. Send a card

 

It wouldn’t be a birthday without a card (or two).

For Refugee Week’s 20th birthday, we’re inviting you to add your message to a giant welcome card for people who are using the services of Refugee Week partner Migrant Help.

We all know how much a few warm words can mean when you’re starting somewhere new, and how the simple gesture of a card can help lift your day.

Tell those starting again after losing so much know that you are thinking of them and want to welcome them to the UK.

Migrant Help will compile your messages onto giant welcome cards and display them in their offices where their clients, who are asylum seekers who are waiting for the outcome of their claim, will be able to read them.

To send your message of welcome to Migrant Help on Twitter, through a Facebook message of by email.

If you are organising an event and would like to display a giant card for the attendees to fill, you can download a template here.

There are 20 Simple Acts to celebrate 20 years of Refugee Week. For more information and the full list, visit the Simple Acts page.
