Bags From Billboards - Every Shelter

Bags From Billboards

This year, we have a fun, useful gift that connects you to the inspiring refugees we get to work with on a daily basis.

We are changing the shelter system: from refugees as passive receivers of poor quality shelter goods to refugees as respected producers of high-quality local shelter goods.

Sewing bags from billboards

We are starting with multi-year shelter tarps made out of discarded billboard vinyl.

While producing our tarps, we had some scraps leftover and thought it would be cool to turn them into bags!

Jump on this opportunity to own a piece of history by joining our monthly donor community at $150+/month.

Even better than a one-of-a-kind tote bag, your monthly support will provide a durable, reliable roof for a refugee family AND give hope and opportunities to refugees trying to move the needle in their own lives.

We hope you’ll enjoy this tangible connection to the refugees you are empowering through your giving!

Not to mention that millions of girls and women will now have many of their rights stolen. This is precisely what causes displacement/refugees; those fleeing persecution…
