BENEFITING: International Rescue Committee

EVENT DATE: May 09, 2017

Rithesh Menon

THE STORY:

I turn 35 this year and to celebrate, I want to raise $100 for every year of my life to support the work of the IRC. I chose to make America my home, but refugees don't have that choice. They are forced to flee their homes and travel in search of safety. All they are looking to do is take control of their lives and live with the dignity and freedom they deserve. For me, this is the essence of America and this is the America I know. 

So this birthday, I am going to celebrate being a new American by raising money for resettling refugees and also supporting the amazing work that IRC does in the field providing education, health services, supporting women's rights, and so much more. Please give generously and thank you for making my birthday a special one! :)
