I am an Armenian American who came to the United States as a 13 year old refugee after being displaced from three other countries. I find myself in a state of grace and blessing having benefited from all the bounty this country has offered me and I would like nothing better for my birthday but to provide relief to the displaced Armenian refugees of Artsakh. While the on-going conflict continues in the Artsakh (Nagorno Karabakh) region, over 70,000 Armenians have now been displaced and have sought refuge in the Armenian main land. My daughter and I will be traveling to Armenia in the next few weeks and guarantee that one hundred percent of all funds raised through this fund raiser will go towards providing relief to the displaced citizens of Artsakh. Relief provided includes but is not limited to food, shelter, medicine and clothing. The support you provide, no matter the amount, means the world to me as it is a gesture of how either my family or I have touched your heart at some point in this life. I am extremely grateful for all your support, sentiments and prayers.
*Please note, my daughter and I will be paying all expenses related to our travel out of our own pockets. None of the funds raised here will be used towards expenses related to our trip.
