Derek, Today is Internatio…
Derek,

Today is International Peace Day.

I can't think of a better day to reach out across the internet and give you a great big hug of appreciation.

Your generous contribution to Soccer Salam really means a lot to me. Thank you.

Since your donation came in, EPIC's Soccer Salam team in Iraq delivered $10,000 of emergency aid and soccer balls to 500 families in the besieged city of Khaladiyah (between ISIS-held Fallujah and ISIS-held Ramadi).

None of the UN or major aid agencies had yet reached these families -- but thanks to our extraordinary Baghdad-based partner -- 500 families have food and other essentials.

The aid workers who volunteered for the mission (and trust me that we in no way encouraged them to make an end run around ISIS!) are true heroes in every sense of the word. Their selfless act of courage and leadership speaks to the true character of the Iraq that I know and have come to love.

Pretty cool, huh. Your donation not only helps families and children in need, it supports the kind of humanitarian leadership that can further the cause of peace in Iraq.

As we enter the homestretch, we are now 78% towards our goal!

Thank you for being there with me from the very beginning.

Bear hug,
Erik

P.S. Please share the bear hug with Jen and the kids!
