Lebanon Relief Fund

Dear community,
It’s with a heavy heart that we send this message out to you, with the hope that it touches your heart and moves you to extend loving energy to Lebanon and it’s people. Lebanon is presently suffering the consequences of a deadly explosion that brought Beirut to its knees. The level of devastation is beyond what our minds can fathom and the need for action is urgent.   
This GoFundMe will fund private organizations who have been diligently working on helping the Lebanese people get their basic needs met. Lebanon is a very special place. It’s a dream that was built on the idea that even though we have different beliefs we can join at the heart and live as one. We wish for this dream that became Lebanon and its people to continue, but we can’t do it without your help.
If you can’t assist monetarily, please light a candle thinking of Lebanon. If you can’t light a candle, a prayer of love will suffice. Whatever you can offer, no matter how small or large, will be deeply felt by those in need.
You can leave your homeland, but your homeland never leaves you. To all of our friends across the globe, thank you for the support.
God bless you.

We are Joelle, Jamie and Isabelle Yazbeck Friedman, originally from Lebanon, residing currently in Boulder Colorado. We are raising these funds personally, so we can distribute the proceeds to multiple charities. 

All funds will be given to the following charities:
