DAY TO GO
I know many of us have complained about 2016 being the most awful year ever. Among the reasons last year was so trying was witnessing the tragedies all over the world, especially Syria. For my birthday, I would love it if you could take a couple of extra moments to click and donate. You're already on facebook wishing me a Happy Birthday, so make that social media presence more impactful. If say 300 friends donate $10 we would hit my goal pretty fast!
I am choosing the Karam Foundation (http://www.karamfoundation.org/) who are doing great work for the immediate, medium and long-term needs of families being evacuated from Aleppo.
More information below, we need to act NOW.
KARAM FOUNDATION IS A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION ON A MISSION TO BUILD A BETTER FUTURE FOR SYRIA.
In ALEPPO they are working with a group of local NGO's to provide emergency aid. An estimated 100,000 people will be evacuated from Eastern Aleppo - approximately 20,000 families. The aid provided is intended to address their immediate needs including basic necessities such as food, heating supplies, and shelter.
THEIR WORK EXTENDS TO THREE KEY AREAS:
Distribute smart aid to Syrian families
Develop innovative education programs for Syrian refugee youth
Fund sustainable development projects initiated by Syrians for Syrians
Also worth knowing that the Karam Foundation are one of the most highly regarded and effective groups working on the ground in Syria. Our friends at the UN all sing their praises. They are legit and extremely impactful.
