BENEFITING: International Rescue Committee
We are a group of freshman students at The Renaissance Charter School trying to help support refugees around the world as they struggle to find safety and comfort. Coming from a place of privilege, we would like to help the people who aren’t as fortunate to have a place of safety and reliability. Our goal is to not only inform students at our school, but to try and make a change outside of our community.
Here are some of the reasons we support refugee assistance:
- People around the world fight for their safety and comfort every day
- Refugees are fleeing from terrible situations that they have no control over
- Many refugees have lost everything...their homes, belongings, families, etc.
- We are in a position of privilege where we can help people...it’s the right thing to do!
