Let's Bring Anwar Back!

This is a fundraiser to help Anwar Alomaisi raise legal funds to help bring him back home. Anwar is a well-loved, talented nature photographer who was recently deported to war-torn Yemen after living here for over 22 years. On top of being a humble, sweet guy and a dear friend to many, he was also a volunteer in the fire department and a Red Cross member. 

We need to raise these funds quickly in order to help #BRINGANWARBACK!

Please donate what you can and share this with others. 

Thank you!
