This fundraiser is to raise as much money as possible on behalf of the displaced children in/around Syria. With Winter approaching quickly, hundreds of children are without the protection of their home and a hot meal to eat, let alone clothes to stay warm. Initially, I hoped to collect clothing to send, but it turns out money is the most effective way to help. As a childcare provider, this epidemic lights the fire inside me and I am urged to do my part. Imagining so many kids with such an unpredictable future kills me. Many have witnessed horrifying deaths of their own family members...some are orphaned...and all need our help. This is not a new issue and it will affect these children for the rest of their lives. With a heavy heart, I invite you, your family, your friends, your coworkers, and anyone else to help these kids out. I would thoroughly appreciate it....and so will the suffering children.
