Songs for Syria

  The Campaign:Songs for Syria is a fundraising event in support of the Syrian Refugee Crisis. We have researched and connected with six different charities that support victims of this crisis and will be campaigning for all of them through this fundraiser. We hope that by including diverse options for people to aid this crisis that we can cover as much area as possible. We have included information as well as links for all of the charities and the fundraising pages below. If you are unable to attend our event, please don't hesitate to donate from afar. Anything helps. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.The Crisis: "Syria’s civil war is the worst humanitarian crisis of our time. Half the country’s pre-war population — more than 11 million people — have been killed or forced to flee their homes.Families are struggling to survive inside Syria, or make a new home in neighboring countries. Others are risking their lives on the way to Europe, hoping to find acceptance and opportunity. And the onset of harsh winter weather makes life as a refugee even more difficult. At times, the effects of the conflict can seem overwhelming.But one fact is simple: millions of Syrians need our help. According to the U.N., it will take $7.7 billion to meet the urgent needs of the most vulnerable Syrians in 2016.You can help. The more you know about the crisis, the more we can do together to help those in need. The lifesaving work that we do, helping people survive conflict and build brighter futures, is only possible with your knowledge and support." -MercyCorpsThe Event:An evening of music and dance to honor and support those in need.
