I am fundraising for IRIS, Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services. IRIS welcomes refugees & persecuted people from Iraq, Afghanistan, Congo, and other countries. IRIS helps them begin their lives in Connecticut. The money I raise will help IRIS provide refugees with housing, food, clothing, and services such as education, English training, job preparation and placement, health care, and immigration legal aid. I have been so lucky to have the life that I do; this is the least I can do to help the millions of refugees who are trying to find peace and security in the United States.
