As a daughter of refugees, my heart goes out to the people who are now making similar journeys. In honor of both my parents, I would like to make a tribute in their names to the International Rescue Committee whose mission is to respond to humanitarian crises and help refugees rebuild their lives. I am personally aiming to raise $8,000 in honor of them, and I've created a very small e-book about their experiences that will be shared to all of our donors. These are small poems and illustrations I've done that tells their story of hardship, but also of joy and happiness.
My hope is that these stories can inspire those who are going through similar situations or to let people know that they are not alone in their experiences, but also bring attention and awareness that wars and conflicts still exist and that we need kindness and action to help those in need.
As a Thank you to Our Donors
The mini e-book is not complete. With your generous donation, I would like to recognize your names (or symbol for those wishing to be anonymous) within the e-book before I put it out into the world.
