I'm running the SF Half Marathon this weekend + hope you will donate $1 for each mile I run to the International Rescue Committee- an organization that helps refugees fleeing crisis and violence to resettle in the U.S.
$13 is enough to: buy a few school supplies for a refugee kid before their first day of school, pay for their parent's lunch on their first day of work in the United States, etc.
Its also about the same amount as 3 fancy SF coffees :)
My overall goal of $1373 is equivalent to the rent for a 2BR apartment in Atlanta, GA for one month.
I run for my former students, many of whom came to the U.S. as refugees from Central America, Yemen, and West Africa.
Thanks for your support!
