THE STORY:

Candice Swartwood wrote -

The International Rescue Committee is a global humanitarian aid, relief, and development nongovernmental organization. In its own words, the IRC "responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of their future." On March 18th, I will be running a ten-miler, with the goal of raising for the IRC $100 for each mile. Your donation will help those still in their war-torn lands as well as those who have resettled in the United States as refugees, asylees, victims of human trafficking, and other immigrants. These are people just like us who, at the end of the day, want to work to support their families and have a safe place for their children to grow and thrive. "No one leaves home unless home is the mouth of a shark." -Warsan Shire
