Afghan Evacuee Assistance

The mission of Seeds of Exchange is to make a difference through community, storytelling, and giving.

Have the happenings in Afghanistan been heartbreaking, and at times, overwhelming for you? (Oof! Us, too.) For several weeks, we’ve been exploring ways we might come together as a community of many – even amidst political and ideological differences – and act with big hearts and open arms of love. We're so excited to connect and fundraise with a nonprofit organization who is scaling up to welcome more families than they can serve alone.

Our fundraising goal of $10,000 will care for the needs of a newly arriving Afghan refugee family in collaboration with Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountain who was evacuated as part of Operation Allies Refuge.

What we LOVE about this is that we have the opportunity to personally connect with the family for whom we’re raising funds. This means that no matter where you live in the world, you can connect with one family of the many thousands who have been impacted by the happenings in Afghanistan.

… Let’s CARE, together, for one family from Afghanistan, who have not only lived in and escaped a war zone, but they now need to start over, find jobs, get their kids settled in a new school, and rebuild their community in the United States.

… Let’s EXTEND, together, hospitality of spirit and tangibly care for the needs of our sisters and brothers.

… Let’s BRIDGE, together, whatever clamors to separate and isolate us with tangible acts and words of love.

We are collaborating with Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains (LFSRM) and all funds raised will go directly to one family through LFSRM. Since 1975, the LFSRM Refugee and Asylee Programs have helped people who have been uprooted by persecution and violence work towards self-sufficiency through essential resettlement services, including: housing, employment, English language, and cultural orientation.
