Relief for Refugees from Ukraine
How can we make this fundraiser meaningful
for your children, not just a mere donation?
Directors of Outreach
Become aware of current events.
Civil thinkers of the future.
Become a Director of Outreach by simply sending a copy of your infographic to us!
Directors of Outreach are premier agents of our fundraiser whose responsibility is to spread awareness about the Ukraine crisis.
They have the special duty of researching and informing the public and people their age about the atrocities occurring in the war and how these atrocities will affect them.
The mission of Directors of Outreach should be to educate one person per day about the crisis and ask them to educate one of their friends. Through this sequence of encounters, more than 100 people can be made aware of the war and ready to do their part in providing aid and relief to the refugees.
By becoming a Director of Outreach, children are gaining three benefits: awareness of world events, leadership experience, and a foundation for civil thinking.
At a young age, children will be exposed to new information and become more conscious of the world around them and how they can help.
As a Director of Outreach, they will also gain meaningful leadership experience by developing their communication abilities and encouraging others to follow suit with their efforts.
Lastly, they will develop a propensity to be apt thinkers and problem-solvers, making them future-proof.
1) Research the Ukraine war. You can choose to focus on the crisis as a whole or certain aspects of it; for example, how the war affects education. Find one article or video that interests you.
2) Create an informative hand-out based on the source. You can make an infographic easily through Canva, or create a DIY arts-and-crafts product. The hand-out should include: context, illustrative pictures of the topic, the headline, date, at least two notable facts from the source, and a "So What?" analysis.
3) Share with others. Print copies of your infographic to share with your friends or send them through email or by posting on social media.

All infographics will be presented under a page on our website with the contributor's name, grade level, and city.
