To Syria, With Love

Trump can sign any number of executive orders he wants. We will stand together and fight. We will stand by our refugee brethren. And we will not let oppression root out the compassion that makes us human.

Donate to make a difference to the people of Syria. You are their hope. Be their hero. All proceeds (every last cent) raised through this campaign will be donated to the International Rescue Committee, one of the largest charities working in the heart of Syria. Give generously.

The war in Syria has claimed between 300,000 and 400,000 lives since April 2011, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. Close to 7,600,000 people are internally displaced in Syria and another 4,800,000 have become refugees and asylum seekers. The United States welcomed its 10,000th Syrian refugee on Aug 29 this year. According to a report by the Guardian, the rebel held city of Aleppo fell to the Assad regime after fierce fighting resumed in the city on Dec. 7, 2016. People from East Aleppo have been tweeting out their goodbyes to the world. Among them, is 7-year-old Bana Al -Abed whose mother tweeted barely 5 days after the fall of Aleppo and said that that was their final message to the world as no one was evacuating them.
