BENEFITING: International Rescue Committee
EVENT DATE: Jul 15, 2017
First, I want to thank you for visiting my Surf, Stretch, and Save Syria Event page benefitting the International Rescue Committee. Please join us on July 15th from 10:00am - 2:00pm for surfing, yoga, and Syrian cuisine, all in an effort to raise money for this incredible cause.
Right now, there are nearly 12.3 million Syrians on the run, who have been displaced from their homes. 6.3 million of these people remain in Syria and face an almost certain future of continued warfare. The IRC is doing their part, and simply needs more funding. With that said, the goal of this event is to raise money to aid the rescue of Syrian Refugee Families in a way that not just removes them from harm, but allows them to return to a "normal" life and thrive. The possibility that this project creates for Refugee families is one of compassion, resillence, and hope. If you cannot attend, or would like to make an additional donation, please see my fundraiser page: https://www.crowdrise.com/the-aleppo-angels-project. Remember, every dollar counts and no donation is too small.
Sincerely, Dan Asbaty, Creator - The Aleppo Angels Project
