Alia Gilbert's Fundraiser:

EMERGENCY HUMANITARIAN AID FOR GAZA

THE STORY:

Dear friends and family members, near and far & around the world,

Right now, you are no doubt being saturated with a constant barrage of news streaming from Gaza, where over 80,000 Palestinians have been displaced from their homes by a storm of bombs, thousands injured beyond recognition, hundreds of civilian men, women and children slaughtered in cold blood and another unknown number of people dead or completely unaccounted for.

Nadia and I, as Palestinians, activists and advocates for victims of humanitarian crises around the world, are tired of watching on the sidelines and have decided to call upon our dearest friends and family to pull together as one to do something about it.

It is very easy to feel utterly powerless, useless, futile and hopeless in the face of such horrific realities. A literal hell on earth. We feel this way, too.

But voices are rising, consciousness is being raised, and we must do what we can right now to help those on the ground, even though many of us wish we could fly there and be of service with our own two hands.

Please, we urge you: Let us all pool whatever we can give - even if it's just $10 - to give to those in Gaza right now. Let's help those who are administering emergency humanitarian aid to Palestinians who are suffering immeasurably as you read this.

We have chosen to donate all proceeds to UNRWA's (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Near East) Gaza Emergency Appeal.

Your money will go directly to humanitarian aid (medical supplies, food, shelter) right now, on the ground, in Gaza.

NOTE FROM CROWDRISE: “CrowdRise takes a fee of 3%-5% before the funds are sent to the charity. The credit card company also deducts their standard 2.9% + $0.30 fee from each donation. The finest charities in the world such as the American Red Cross, UNICEF, Stand Up to Cancer and Clinton Global Initiative all choose CrowdRise. The fees are used to deliver the most amazing online fundraising platform and give you such amazing service that you'll feel compelled to tell ten, no eleven, friends about CrowdRise.”

If you are kind enough to pass this page on to your other friends and family members who may not know about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict but wish to learn more, send them this video made by an organization called Jewish Voice for Peace about the origins of this nearly 70-year long ordeal: http://bit.ly/RVGKUT

Thank you for your support. Let’s do this together.

With love, gratitude and sincere thanks to you,
Alia & Nadia Gilbert
