Seeds for Four Seasons
Sowing seeds of a new life
The IRC's New Roots program helps hundreds of refugees in the United States to rebuild their lives by growing food in community gardens. Many of these refugees were farmers in their home countries. New Roots is a way for them to celebrate their heritage and forge connections with a new land as they provide fresh produce for their families and communities. $80 can provide seed packets to help them grow herbs, vegetables and fruit year-round.
Give a Rescue Gift now and your gift to the IRC will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $1 million by generous friends of the IRC. Through Dec. 31, 2013.
Why they’ll Love a Rescue Gift
“Educating girls in underdeveloped countries is really important to both my mother and me, so I gave my mom a Rescue Gift. She said it was the best gift she’d ever gotten.”
