Donate to Crossing Lines – Slacklining with Refugees

We believe slacklining can be a powerful tool to help refugees integrate into their new communities, build relationships, and learn the local languages in a playful environment. Perhaps more importantly, we believe slacklining can also help the local community to connect with refugees outside of headlines and news reports. Help us have an impact.

Crossing Lines teaching slacklining to refugees in Lebanon in 2017

Crossing Lines is an international network of adventure athletes using slacklining to connect people across cultural divides. The original Crossing Lines project began when three Americans joined their Iranian teammates to establish new highlines (slacklines at heights) and host the first international highline festival in Iran. Crossing Lines continues it’s mission by teaching slacklining to refugees in Lebanon and the U.S.

Slacklining builds confidence, balance, and focus. Communities naturally form around it by teaching and encouraging each other. The Crossing Lines community believes slacklining can change the lives of refugees and that we can change the way we see each other by sharing our stories.

Funds raised will be used to acquire slackline equipment, pay transport costs to get slacklines to our groups in the U.S. and Lebanon, and cover other project expenses.
