at a time when we as a human family are facing covid challenges, it’s easy to see that others are also struggling. some are easily seen and it’s often easy to help. others yet, are less seen, less heard...we want to ease their suffering and and yet, we’re not sure exactly how to make that happen. meet my artist friend melissa robel. melissa is is not only lifting the world through her art, but she’s also the brains behind pads4refugees, a non-profit helping women and girls in refugee camps. hear about melissa’s unique education journey of art and law school(s!)...as well as her time in a yazidi refugee camp in greece. learn how melissa has used these experiences and connections to ease the burdens and challenges of the women and girls in the camps and find out how you can also help.
