BENEFITING: International Rescue Committee
ORGANIZER: International Rescue Committee
Every day - heck, nearly every hour, I feel overwhelmed with news about devastation, inequality, injustice, etc. both at home and around the world. I do what I can to contribute to causes I believe in and I feel incredibly lucky for all that I have in my life.
When I hear stories about the dire situations some of these families that the International Rescue Committee (IRC) helps, my heart just breaks. What would Penelope and I do if we were in that situation? Who would hear our story? Who would care? Who would help?
The IRC responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises, helping to restore health, safety, education, economic wellbeing, and power to people devastated by conflict and disaster. Founded in 1933 at the call of Albert Einstein, the IRC is at work in over 40 countries and 28 offices across the U.S. helping people to survive, reclaim control of their future, and strengthen their communities.
Support them - and my effort to run this daunting race. Many thanks.
