$20,000 Goal


Refugee Artisan Initiative (RAI) partners with refugee and immigrant women to foster an inclusive, prosperous transition to the US through artisan skills training and microbusiness development.


For GiveBIG this year, RAI is paying it forward by donating some of our line of zero-waste pet products for every donation to our organization. Please join us in our goal of donating pet products to our animal friends at Resilient Hearts Animal Sanctuary! For every donation of $30, we will be sending three tug and snuffle toys for homeless dogs and cats. For every donation, we will be donating dog and cat toys and beds to the shelter. All products are made from upcycled fleece and cotton textiles. These products create zero waste. All donations will go towards paying and training refugee and immigrant women artisans for their work.
