BENEFITING: Save the Children
EVENT DATE: Oct 03, 2015
Nearly 12 million Syrians have been forced from their homes by the fighting — nearly half are children who are at risk of becoming ill, malnourished, abused, or exploited. Millions have been forced to quit school. We've watched news reports on children dying and parents struggling against all odds -- a reality none of us can imagine for ourselves or our children. But it IS happening and we MUST help.
Local LIC families are banding together to raise funds to help Syrian refugee children. Donate here or by visiting the LIC Lemon-AID stand at Communitea (11-18 46th Rd, Long Island City, New York 11101) on Oct. 3 from 10am-1230pm. Details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/454222324750672/
All funds collected both online and from the LIC Lemon-AID stand will be donated to Save the Children, a leading worldwide nonprofit that is helping Syrian refugee children with both life-saving and life-changing measures. Thank you for your help!
