Miry Whitehill – How a Toddler Playdate Turned Into a Movement After Meeting a Family of Newly Arrived Refugees From Syria

It all started during an ‘accidental’ toddler playdate followed by a friendly Facebook video. This one seemingly simple act of kindness turned into Miry’s List.

Miry Whitehill recognized an immediate need and went to work to help solve the challenges refugee's deal with when arriving here in California. Today, Miry has over 130 “list-makers” (listen to the interview to find out what this is!). By creating the “lists,” ordinary people would know simple things they could get on Amazon to support the refugee resettlement process.

To date, Miry Whitehill and her dedicated team have helped over 300 families and is growing rapidly.

If I could go back to myself (2 years ago, 5 years ago, 7 years ago, 10 years ago), I would advise myself to focus on things that are solvable.” – Miry Whitehall
