BENEFITING: US Association for UNHCR
The truth is that millions of people are currently displaced by war and are struggling to find any resemblance of normality. Chased by torment, hate, political destruction and the smell of death, millions are without a roof over their heads. Millions are being paraded around as political ammunition as to why one politician should be replaced. Millions have been haunted by fighting and even after their close escapes are reminded every second that they are no longer home and home is no longer anywhere. Even worse still is that so much war is constantly happening it is hard to keep up with it in the comfort of our American lives, distanced by enough miles and so many pixels on our screens. It is hard to understand the magnitutude of these atrocities and because of that it is hard for us to feel that we can make a difference. However, we can. Art For Refuge is focused on bringing the Los Angeles art community together in order to raise financial contributions for Syrian Refugees and help provide some basic needs for those who need it the most. The goal is to bring people together with music and art in order to create an environment where all the refugees of this world are on the forefront of all of our minds, where those who need the most love, attention, and financial resources, will hopefully be given just that.
