Invitations - How Diverse Families Make Friends
Our Melting Pot Culture is filled with racial and ethnic treasures. When we extend a hand in friendship to one another, opportunities flow-in. But it can be scary.
Cross Cultural Invitations
Making friends can be risky.
Don’t be shy. Just be frisky,
Smile kindly big and bright.
Extend your hand with an invite,
That crosses cultures and you will see,
Your new friend is filled with glee.
Once that door is open, barriers can be overcome, friendships can begin, and appreciation for our sameness and differences can blossom.
Friendship Ice Breakers
Everyone is responsible to extend a hand in friendship. There are fun and easy ways to break the ice with invitations like:
- A neighborhood party
- A plate of cookies

Racially Diverse Friendships Enrich Us When We:
