Event description

Description

As most of you know, Dan and I adopted a Syrian refugee family two years ago. They are an amazing family with four kids. The day they came bounding out of the airport to meet us--huge grins on their faces--was a day that we and they both changed for the better. We helped them get food, a car, treatment for their kids, and jobs. Many of you during that time asked how you could help. It's a hard time to do anything right now, since the immigration crackdown led by the Trump administration. Despite the horrific images of war online, a lot of us feel like we can't do anything but try and numb ourselves to the images that we see.

But we CAN do something. It just takes some research.

Come to this event and learn about Karam Foundation, and how they are making a huge impact on one of the most series threats to humanity in our lifetime: the Syrian war. At Karam Foundation, they develop Innovative Education programs for Syrian refugee youth, distribute. Smart Aid to Syrian families, and fund Sustainable Development projects initiated by Syrians for Syrians. Run by Lina Sergei Attar, Karam was foujnded in 2007, and fights for Syrian families to this day. Karam is doing something BIG for these familes, and getting resources over war lines. They are necessary, and inspired.

Please come and support them and their work. My Syrian family will be there, and will make the food! Lina can come from Karam and talk about her work. We'll have drinks, dinner, dessert and we can really DO something about a situation that I know haunts many of us nonstop. I hope to see you there!
