Our amazing supermom and life partner, Lorraine, is turning 40 this month and despite asking her many, many times in recent weeks what she would like for her birthday - the answer has always been “I don’t need anything.”
So we finally listened and instead of getting her something, we are raising money in her honor for the International Rescue Committee (IRC) - a cause that she loves. 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. They provide clean water, shelter, health care, education and empowerment support to refugees and displaced people throughout the world.
We plan to raise at least $4,000 in honor of her birthday by the end of February. No donation is too small – every dollar we raise will help support the IRC’s important mission. According to the IRC, only $58 is enough to support the school fees, books and other supplies a child needs to continue their education for a year.
Please share this fundraiser with friends, family, or co-workers that might be interested in helping us to reach our goal.
