Hey friends and family!!! I have had Syria on my heart and mind for a while. I can no longer sit back and do nothing. I am in the process of devoting my life's work to helping others in situations of crisis. After much research
and prayer; I know this is where my path is leading to.
I ask that you all step back, and imagine what your life would be like if you had to leave everything behind and flee for your safety. For your children's safety. Mothers, how would you cope if you no longer had the comforts of your home to provide food, shelter, security and sanctuary for your children, spouse or yourself? Men, how would you feel if you had to flee and no longer could provide for your family anymore. That now your worries were for the safety of your wife and your children just to go to the bathroom at night. To worry that your daughter or son may be kidnapped for organ harvesting or marriage.
I implore you to please make a heartfelt donation to my fundraiser if any of this touches your soul.

U.S. Fund for UNICEF wrote -
7.6 million children are affected by the brutal five-year-old conflict in Syria. Children have been put at risk by unrelenting violence, crumbling infrastructure, ruined schools and hospitals and shortages of essential supplies. UNICEF has been on the ground since the conflict began, helping to mobilize the largest humanitarian operation in history and working closely with partners to provide education, physical protection, psychological support and clothing to Syrian refugee children in Iraq, Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon, Egypt and other countries; immunize children against disease; and provide millions of people with acess to safe drinking water.
For these children, what's at stake isn't politics. It's their future. Having already lost their homes, schools and communities, their chances of building a future may also soon be lost. Refugee camps in the countries bordering Syria are overflowing. There are now 2 million child refugees who have fled Syria. That's more than the combined under-18 populations of Los Angeles and Boston.
UNICEF is fighting to protect Syrian children, but we need your help. Donate to help UNICEF meet their urgent needs.
