While we can’t visit their signature pop-up Experience this year, COVID-19 hasn’t stopped this incredible organization, Choose Love from spreading goodness to those in need. People can scatter Joy by purchasing real products for refugees through their online store. Divided into the three phases of a refugee’s journey – Arrival, Shelter, and Future – the online platform allows visitors to step into the shoes of a refugee and then personally select how, and in what way, to make an impact. All the items chosen are delivered to people facing winter in the most difficult circumstances. Last year alone, the pop-up and online platform helped provide refugees with 800,000 nutritious meals, 3,556 nights of accommodation, 25,000 winter essentials, and 100,000 items for babies and children.
In this season of giving and our final month of LOVING, we’re inspired by this reminder to always Choose Love and the power of this simple message: “We all have a choice. To be motivated by fear and animosity, to build walls and turn our backs on the world. Or to nurture the hopeful; to recognize our common future. To choose love. The world can feel broken, but these cracks are letting in light.” Let’s all be the LOVING agents of possibility and #ChooseLove.
