THE STORY:

Nearly three years ago, on May 20, 2014, our beautiful baby boy Oliver Yu-An passed away to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) at age 15 weeks. Oliver was a precious gift who filled our hearts with so much love and joy, and not a day goes by that we don't miss him terribly. 

Every year, on his birthday, our family honors Oliver's memory and raises funds to support non-profit organizations and visionary individuals that help improve the health, education and future of children around the world. 

On February 1, 2017, Oliver would have been 3 years old. And this year, we would like to invite you to join the #10FOR10 campaign and support the Karam Foundation which delivers medical aid, food, shelter and education programs to families in Syria. 

We cannot think of a happier, more meaningful way to celebrate his life and hope you'll join us! 

With gratitude,
Irene, Yoon, Sean and Will Nam

We need your help. Syria is in the midst of a brutal civil war. An estimated 100,000 people are currently being evacuated from Aleppo. They urgently need food, shelter and medical aid.  

What can you do? Please donate at least $10, and share with 10 of your friends to do the same. Donors will be picked at random to win prizes (info below). #10FOR10

Where will the money go? We'll be donating to the Karam Foundation, a widely respected grassroot organization distributing smart aid to address families' immediate needs and delivering education programmes for vulnerable refugee youth. 

2016 was a rough year, let's start 2017 off right.
