As many of you know, I'm a professional fundraiser, but this time I'm on a personal fundraising mission for the most important cause I can think of: helping refugees who are fleeing violence, persecution, and conflict. My heart broke with yesterday's news that President Trump signed an executive order to close our nation's borders to those who are most vulnerable, and I hope you will join me in standing up for these refugees (the majority of whom are women and children) who are facing unimaginable terrors. I have made a donation to the International Rescue Committee, a 501(c)(3) that offers offers emergency aid and long-term assistance to refugees. I hope you will join me in being as generous as you can in making a tax-deductible donation to this worthy organization. And since I do work in politics...if you'd like to make a difference beyond financial support, you should CALL (not write or email) your Congressman or Senator's office and let them know that you are opposed to the refugee ban. If you aren't sure who your representative is you can look it up at http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/ Let's show the world that Donald Trump's version of America is not who we really are!
