BENEFITING: Global Impact
In a few days, I'm turning a year older. Your valued greetings will inundate my feed, and I will be thankful for your usual thoughtfulness. We might go out for dinner or watch a movie. I might receive a shirt or two, a tie or a gift card. Then life continues the same way it has year after year. But I want the day to be different this time. Closely following the migrant crisis in Europe and deeply moved by the tragic death of the three-year old Syrian boy washed ashore in Turkey, I want my upcoming birthday to be more meaningful and life-giving. I'm starting a modest fundraising effort to benefit migrants being rescued at sea or stranded at train stations. Your generosity might save the life of another child and afford him more birthdays to come.
