THE STORY:

As Matthew turns 6, we're asking friends and family to support sending a refugee child to the International Rescue Committee's three week Refugee Youth Summer Academy in Union, New Jersey. Matthew will soon graduate from Kindergarten and start summer camp. We want his birthday to help other children access opportunities for learning, growth and healing.


IRC will operate its second annual Refugee Youth Summer Academy at Kean University’s Human Rights Institute in Union, New Jersey from August 7 -25, 2017. This privately funded initiative engages 70 refugee youth ages 5 to 20 to promote English language learning, self-confidence and healing in a fun, structured, supportive environment. Read more here.


For transparency's sake, Mom does work at IRC and knows first hand how beneficial this program is for the kids. $570 is the average cost for one child to attend, so that's our goal for this campaign. Thank you so much for your generous donation!
