HELP REFUGEES THRIVE
We love great food, but our motivation for this calendar is to raise awareness and help forcibly displace people recover and thrive. All profit from the sale of these calendars goes to programs that help refugees thrive. In addition to directly engaging refugees ourselves. We also have some amazing partners who are making a big impact with forcibly displaced people. Your contribution provides the means for us to support this effort directly and by providing program grant opportunities to others who assist refugees.
THE MORE YOU KNOW
Understanding the refugees situation is one of the most important steps to making an impact for good in the live of forcibly displaced people. The very first page of the calendar features a compelling infographic that highlight the situation around the world with a special emphasis on the role of host nations. Afterwards, each month features statistics, facts and country specific situation reports that serve as a great tool for thought, discussion and motivation to get involved.
If the way to a person’s heart is through their stomach… you better believe we’re going to get there!
We love to cook, but we want to do more that.
There are 70.8 million forcibly displaced children, women and men in the world – the highest number ever recorded. That’s 1 in every 108 people alive today. Another 37,000 people are uprooted every day. This is the largest global humanitarian crisis in hundreds of years.
Our goal is to raise awareness of forcibly displaced people and to find opportunities to serve refugees where they are. Our team at My Ethnic Table creates and publishes an annual benefit cooking calendar to raise awareness and funds that allow us to reach out to communities directly. As we encounter people, we focus on three areas:
- ENGAGE: Often the hardest part of life for a refugee is regaining a sense of place. We engage people to help them belong in their new community.
- ELEVATE: We invest in people on a personal level by spending time together and reminding them of their worth.
- EMPOWER: Starting over is hard. We want to help refugees with the cultural, financial and workplace tools to succeed.
We never would have imaged that ordinary every-day activities like cooking and sharing a meal could change lives, but something special happens when we gather around a table to share a meal. It draws people together. It is a time of connection. It builds bridges between strangers. It renews us physically and spiritually.
