Friends of Welcoming
“Friends of Welcoming” is an interactive web portal – due to be released by Welcoming America in May of 2011 – for individuals and groups who are interested in taking their interest in welcoming newcomers to the next level. Individuals who register online will be given access to online welcoming tools, as well as objectives. As they complete objectives, they will earn “welcoming points” which will make them eligible for cash prizes to be used to build a full-scale Welcoming initiative, or to support a local immigrant and/or refugee serving organization. Most of the activities listed in the Get Involved section of this site will be redeemable for Friends of Welcoming points once it is launched.
