Thank You for Celebrating Hope With Us!

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the virtual Celebration of Hope on April 15, 2021! What an incredible blessing to have so many of you—we estimate over 800—come together to honor the power of refugee and volunteer connections. Thanks to your generosity, we exceeded our goal and can help even more refugee families!

 If you couldn’t join us or want to see it again, you can experience the Celebration below. In less than 45 minutes, you will:

  • Learn how nearly 4,000 Exodus volunteers served almost 12,000 refugees in 2020, reaching out in new ways to connect with those most affected by the pandemic.
  • Hear original poetry by Mehret Asgedom, a former refugee from the Tigray region of Ethiopia and an Exodus board member.
  • Follow the journey of Wahidah, a refugee from Myanmar, who became a U.S. citizen with the help of Exodus volunteers.
