To commemorate the 10 year anniversary of Brandi Carlile’s “The Story,” The Looking Out Foundation is partnering with War Child UK to launch The Story Campaign - a sharing of stories from children whose families, communities, and schools have been torn apart by war. 

“So many stories of where I’ve been and how I got to where I am.”

Every month, we will be posting new stories from these resilient individuals so that their voices can be heard and so that we can raise funds to help them and the thousands of other people who are unfairly impacted by war. All proceeds from The Story Campaign will benefit War Child UK to help their efforts to support and protect children and their families.

“But these stories don’t mean anything when you’ve got no one to tell them to.”

We’re relying on our Looking Out community to share these stories and help fundraise for these extraordinary people.
