Can you be the light?
The headline grabs: GROUP LAUNCHES SEARCH FOR 100K U.S. SPONSORS FOR UKRAINIAN REFUGEES.
More than 5 million Ukrainians, mostly women, children and the elderly, have been forced out of their homes in Ukraine by Putin’s War, his daily slaughter of innocent civilians.
Can you sponsor a Ukrainian family so they’re permitted to emigrate here?
Ok, your first stop is Welcome.US
Beginning today, you can sign up to provide whatever help you can, whether you’ve got a second home, a rental property, or some extra money you can use to help these people.
Perhaps you have room in your own home to offer, giving a desperate family comfort and support – a safe place to stay until they get on their feet, find jobs, and the means to move to their own place.
Or, you can make a one-time (or monthly) donation to help Airbnb provide housing to Ukrainian refugees.
Do you have airline miles you don’t need right now? You can donate miles to MILES4MIGRANTS and help a Ukrainian family get here.
Most of us have more than we need. To be able to share right now with people who need us is its own reward. Nothing you will do today can make you feel better.
Thanks for your generosity and now please share this with your friends who may also be willing to help.
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
~ Matthew 25:35-40
