ABOUT THE PIN PROJECT
“Our world is in trouble.”
- UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, September 19, 2017
Around the world, over 65 million people have been forced from their homes by conflict, drought, persecution or terrorism. They need and deserve our help to rebuild their lives. According to the UN refugee agency, 1 in 3 viable livelihoods for refugees is in craft production.
We wanted to translate widespread public support for refugees around the world into action that would make a difference: all our supporters needed to do was to buy, wear or give a pin!
The Pin Project will launched on November 15th, 2017 on Kickstarter and raised $106,479 CAD.
All of the pins were be produced by refugees, displaced persons or returnees in workshops around the world and 100% of the proceeds went directly back to supporting increased revenues and better lives for refugees and their families.
