LGBTQI refugees holiday aid

This holiday season I would like to encourage you to support some of my friends in need.  Please help me raise some money to allow LGBTQ refugees in Turkey to be able to buy groceries and necessities.  My goal is to help over 40 people.

As you  may know, I am a refugee from the country of Syria.  I know how very important it is to receive aid, especially when you are in a new country.  I would like to help others who are currently in the situation that I was once in.   I now work for an organization that helps refugees, but I would like to do this in my personal capacity.

Through my colleagues, who work for international non-profit agencies in Turkey, I will transfer the funds raised to a secure bank account which they can then use to purchase gift cards for the refugees and distribute them based on greatest need.  I will post updates and pictures showing how your kind donation was delivered.

Thank you in advance for your donation, and for your generosity!  You will be helping someone have a much happier holiday season!
