If you were suddenly displaced from your home, what would you take with you? Luckily it’s something we don’t all experience, but for millions of refugees fleeing war in their own country, it’s their reality.

In a powerful new video for the UN Refugee Agency, Cate Blanchett joins forces with Stanley Tucci, Keira Knightley, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and other celebs to recite “What They Took with Them,” a poem by Jenifer Toksvig. The video is accompanied by photos from Brian Sokol’s project, “The Most Important Thing” and firsthand accounts from the refugees he photographed.

The video asks people to sign the #WithRefugees petition which will be presented at the UN General Assembly on September 19. It asks the government to ensure refugee children receive education, provide housing for refugees, and offer them new skills and employment opportunities.

Sign the petition and watch the video below:

They say it’s easier to get by in life if you’re good looking. They say it’s easier to get by in life if you’ve had successful parents. But what they don’t say is that you don’t have to take the path of least resistance – you can go your own way.

And that’s exactly what Tali Lennox, daughter of singer Annie Lennox, has done.

As a painter, Tai has carved out her own path, specializing in portraiture, and has been passionate about defining herself rather than letting herself be defined. In her own words, Tali told us her story and where she finds her inspiration.
