Holiday Celebrations for Refugees

This campaign is a spin-off of the original Go Fund Me campaign that raised nearly $2k for a refugee family with a little girl battling cancer:

The original campaign, Help Refugee Family Battle Cancer, has all donations go directly to the family. This  campaign, Holiday Celebrations for Refugees, is designed so that Brandon and I can use some money to help make this family's holiday celebrations fun. All money will go towards Christmas presents, and all remaining money will be given to the family.

We are trying to raise $300 (we raised $700 last year with this campaign, and so have made it a total of $1000) so that we can buy the family Christmas presents.

I have some great news for all of you - the family has told me that Drs. say they have gotten rid of the cancer. As you can see in the photo, Aula even has some hair starting to grow back. Aula is quite behind on school work, and so in addition to fun Christmas presents, we are hoping to use some money to buy some toys that will help promote learning at home for Aula. Additionally, Jina lost her mother a few months ago, and the family incurred costs by paying for Jina to fly home to say goodbye to her mom. So all donations are welcome and will be very helpful for the family!
