The colored pieces of fabric on these bookmarks come from life jackets worn by the refugees fleeing their homelands and crossing the Aegean Sea. Small scraps are quilted to the bookmark for the backdrop of the word.
These fundraising items are made by volunteers. The life jackets have been retrieved from the beaches of Lesvos and Samos, Greece after being worn by fleeing refugees. After costs of materials, 100% of proceeds from sales will be used for refugee projects including supplying basic human needs and medicine.
THESE PRODUCTS WERE DESIGNED TO SPARK A CONVERSATION ABOUT REFUGEES.
