This is the only official #SaveRahaf fundraiser
Rahaf Al Qanun made headlines for being the brave, fearless teenager who barricaded herself in a hotel room in Thailand and refused to be put on a plane back to Saudi Arabia. Defying her family, her government, and ALL the odds against her, Rahaf has landed safely in Canada.
Her new Canadian family (Ensaf Haider, Tarek Fatah, and Yasmine Mohammed) want to start a fund for her. Starting a brand new life with nothing but the clothes on your back will be daunting for this 18 yr old girl-especially since she is not used to the harsh Canadian winters (or the price of a coat and boots!)
If you cheered on Rahaf in her quest for freedom, and you want to continue to support her, please contribute to this campaign.
This whole saga has shown us all the resilience of the human spirit. Rahaf is a hero and example to so many who wish they were in her shoes...and if it weren't for your support, she might not have made it here to accept these beautiful flowers from Tarek.
