I’d like to take a moment to explain why this campaign is being started:
SARAH WAYNE CALLIES, born in the United States, raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. She graduated from Dartmouth College and received a Master of Fine Arts degree from Denver's National Theatre Conservatory.
Her breakout role was on the FOX TV series Prison Break (2005), playing the role of Dr. Sara Tancredi. However, she is perhaps best known for her role as "Lori Grimes" in the hit AMC series The Walking Dead (2010). Additional television credits include the role of "Officer Jane Porter" on the WB's Tarzan (2003) as well as a recurring role on CBS' Queens Supreme (2003) with Oliver Platt. Callies has also appeared on Ley y orden: Unidad de víctimas especiales (1999), and Dragnet (2003). She has also starred in three feature films, Bittersweet (2008), Stewart Hendler's Hellion - El ángel caído (2007) for Universal Pictures and Barnet Bain's independent, Las nueve revelaciones (2006).
NOW she's a Voice for the International Rescue Committe that 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.
This is what she said:
“The IRC has been doing its work quietly and modestly for a long time, and I'm proud of them, but my job as a Voice is to speak loudly so we can get more people to help. It's an honor to be a part of something like this.”
Sarah is from a refugee family: Her grandfather fled the White Terror in Hungary in the 1920s. Today, she is a dedicated supporter of the IRC. Sarah says she is always impressed by the bravery, dedication and generosity of the people she meets during her visits to countries such as Thailand, Jordan, Iraq and Serbia.
Today, we want to make a difference and donate to the IRC and help them fight against the Femine Crisis.
But, was is Femine Crisis? Famine was declared in February 2017 in South Sudan, where some 100,000 people are facing starvation and a million more are on the brink.
The IRC is predicting imminent famine in Somalia, Yemen and northeastern Nigeria. Kenya and Ethiopia are also grappling with severe drought and hunger, even as they struggle to host hundreds of thousands of refugees from neighboring countries in turmoil. But just as aid agencies like the IRC ramp up their lifesaving crisis response, they are facing drastic cuts to U.S. foreign aid. The timing couldn't be worse.
That's why, now that she's turning 40 years old on June 1st 2017, I thought we can make her the most wonderfull gift: Helping others!
So this is the thing and it's so easy: You can go to www.sarahwcdbayproject.blogspot.com and donate whatever you can to the International Rescue Committe, to support and help them and therefore help to fight against Famine Crisis.
You can go to www.rescue.org to learn more about the organization. You can also follow me on twitter @RoraimaC or @WeSahBirthdays if you have any question, you can comment or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you all for the support!!!
With love, Roraima Nazareth (Or Rori, if you prefer.)
