"Getting through the mud is tough, but once you manage to break through it, it is so miraculous to finally be able to bloom." - Why We All Need a Creative Outlet by Jennifer Twardowski

Give Thanks has visited many refugee camps in Greece to set up art projects for children, but as you might imagine, life in a refugee camp is difficult for adults as well. Most will spend day after day in a tent or container without anything to do.  We want to do something to improve the quality of life for the mamas and papas. 

We are excited to announce the rollout of our new prodgram! Give Thanks has received generous donations of sewing machines to deliver to camps in Greece. In October, we will send a team to distribute these machines along with materials to set up a sewing program where displaced women and men will be able to have a creative outlet as well as earn something for their work. The items made will be sold to directly benefit the people who made them.

We currently have locations in Athens and Thessaloniki who are waiting for us! In order to accomplish this, we are fundraising to buy materials in Greece for the sewing program as well for travel costs to distribute the machines.

Your donation will go directly towards the start of this sewing program.
