Let’s Respond: Letters for Refugees

Are you ready to get involved? A small team from California will be traveling to the Greek-Macedonian border this week and we want to send them with hand-written letters for refugees FROM YOU!

I am asking you to join us in writing letters that this team will give to some of the 13,000 currently trapped at the border in Idomeni, Greece. In these letters you can offer encouragement, prayers, or maybe a picture or two (recruit your kids!). Write to show that they are loved. Write to show that they are not forgotten.

📮 Please mail your letters by Monday (TODAY) to:

PEACE Relief
ATTN: Jillian
1 Saddleback Pkwy
Lake Forest, CA 92630

📲 Or you can scan/type your letter and email it by Wednesday to:


Write your letters in English or ask a friend (or Google Translate) to translate your letter into Arabic, Farsi, or Pushto.

Like this idea? SHARE it with your community! Encourage your family, friends, churches, schools, etc. to spend 5 minutes writing a letter that could dramatically impact a family’s life. It may seem like a small gesture to you, but these letters could be treasured for many years to come.


*UPDATE*: Within just 48 hours we collected over 100 letters and sent them off to Greece with a team from Saddleback Church! The letters were delivered to refugees in Idomeni, Greece during the last week of March. Thank you everyone who wrote a letter! If you missed it, but still want to write a letter, follow The Syrian Circle on Facebook and keep an eye out on my blog for information about the April letter-writing campaign!
