My dearest friends & family,
I'll be ringing in 30(!) on 1/5/18, and in honor of my birthday, I've set a goal to raise $3000 for refugees by the end of January - a hundred dollars for every trip around the sun. In lieu of birthday presents, please consider making a tax-deductable donation toward this goal, and help me support the critical work of the International Rescue Committee (IRC) in Syria, Yemen, Myanmar, and some forty other countries worldwide. For more than 80 years the IRC has been at the forefront of serving and advocating for people whose lives have been devastated by war and humanitarian disasters, from providing life-saving emergency response to supporting long term recovery to aiding refugee resettlement in the U.S. - work that has never been more urgent than today.
I won't be able to reach this fundraising goal without your help - whether $3, $30, or $100, whatever you can afford to contribute is deeply appreciated and makes a difference!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart,
