THE STORY:

Right now the children of Syria and South Sudan are enduring atrocities no individual, let alone child, should ever have to witness. Day after day I see the heartbreak in their eyes on the news and not knowing what to do, I am looking to raise money to support the International Rescue Committee and their work in both places to save as many people as they can. South Sudan is on the verge of an ethnic cleansing and families have been fleeing their villages as their family and neighbors, men, women, and children are brutally murdered by machete wielding "soldiers." This is an idea so foreign to those in the West it seems like fiction, but these children are living this day in and day out. Thousands of children, many losing all their family are enduring it alone. It is beyond belief that once again this is happening, we have see this too many times and can not let it happen again. The news coming out of Syria, particularly Aleppo is horrifying. The pictures of those beautiful children who have been so gravely effected by the ongoing conflict is not only heartbreaking but when you look in their eyes you know they need help. These years have forever changed the lives of these children, they deserve to be safe, fed, and educated. It is the minimum humanity should offer. It is so hard to know what to do, this is one small way, those from all over the globe can come together and support the people risking their own lives to save those of the children in these war ravaged areas.
