We have all heard about the Syrian refugee crisis, and have also been subjected to the associated fear-mongering. Clicking LIKE on a tragic Facebook picture or supportive comment does NOTHING to help anyone. That’s why my wife and I have promised to do something that we hope can actually help.
We are making a meaningful cash donation and also pledging to continue helping in the future. There are so many wonderful people among us and we can make a difference in the lives of other families.
Donate your time, or your money, or something tangible that is needed. If you have no idea where to start, look at this: A small town in Northwestern Ontario, Canada, has had its own troubled times but they’ve come together as concerned citizens to try to help a Syrian family in need. Even if it’s just one family, it will make all the difference to them. Housing, jobs, an opportunity to learn English, go to school, make friends. To live a life that is safe and welcoming in a supportive community. We think that’s awesome.
I think it’s extra special because it’s my home town.
Find your good cause, and DONATE.
