Bridges Beyond Borders ( is a refugee youth mentoring organization that a classmate and I started this year. Ten college students work with ten refugee middle- and elementary school kids to makes their lives just a little bit brighter and easier. Through the help of a friend at another university, we have enough money to throw a holiday party to bring the children and their families together with their mentors. We want to offer these kids the opportunity to have a bright, happy holiday season - something their families might otherwise be unable to afford. Here's where you come in - vote for this idea, and we'll be able to fulfill these kids' wish lists. I want more than anything to be able to give these children something to unwrap at our little get together, and we simply won't have the money to do that without your help. Thank you in advance for making their holidays as bright and wonderful as your own!!!!!
