Spread the word in Atlanta

Last updated 

Want to spread the word about making #RefugeesWelcome and also contribute more? There are many creative ways to accomplish these goals simultaneously.

Raise money:

  • Host your own fundraising event! Invite your friends and family for dinner, tea, or a dance party and ask for a suggested donation at the door, making your guests aware ahead of time why you’re hosting this time around! 
  • Running a race this year or next? Ask your supporters to donate a dollar or ten for each mile you conquer! 
  • Start a “Go Fund Me” page and promote a collection for a unique IRC project.  
  • If you are a teacher or student, consider holding a "Change for Refugees" coin drive among your class(es) and donating the total raised to the IRC in Atlanta.
  • Contact Volunteeratl [at] rescue.org (subject: Question%20about%20raising%20money) (us) for more information.


Social media:

  • Follow us on Facebook, and ask others to do the same! “Like” and share our posts and articles. Use the hashtag #RefugeesWelcome when sharing posts on your social media accounts about the refugee crisis and acknowledging that refugees are welcome in our community. Tag @International Rescue Committee in Atlanta on Facebook to link others to us, and also use the #IRCAtlanta hashtag when sharing information about the IRC’s refugee resettlement efforts in Atlanta.
