Welcoming Stories

Welcoming Stories Logo

Many immigrants on the road to “becoming an American” were helped by someone along the way. We’ve paired up with First Person American to create Welcoming Stories, a series of short videos that capture these small acts of kindness, big-hearted moments and simple but life-changing connections. Send us yours! Please visit our blog to learn how to submit a “welcoming” story of your own.

Submitting a Welcoming Story is  eligible for Welcoming America’s “Friends of Welcoming” points that are redeemable for fun prizes, cash (to be donated to your favorite charity) or a $5,000 grant to start your own Welcoming Initiative.
