We’ve been telling stories about the refugee crisis for years. You’ve watched, liked, and shared them, which we appreciate.
But now we want to do more.
NowThis is partnering with CrowdRise to raise $10,000 for 4 agencies who have been fighting for the rights of refugees globally, whether it’s rescuing them at sea or helping them resettle and navigate new countries. Those agencies are UNHCR, Unicef, IRC and IRIS.
We’re launching our campaign in honor of World Refugee Day, which falls on June 20th.
Why are we doing this?
Because every minute, 24 people are displaced worldwide by conflict and persecution. That’s over 65 million people in just 2015.
We are flooded with these devastating images and stories every day, and the scale of the crisis sometimes makes it seem like we’re helpless. But we’re not.
We can be part of the solution by elevating the right voices and helping agencies who are doing great work for refugees.
So this World Refugee Day, help us meet our humble goal of 10k for our partner agencies.
