Simon's birthday fundraiser: 412FR
In 2015, Simon volunteered for 412 Food Rescue by helping pick up and deliver food to a local refugee community. Since then, he's been a huge fan of the organization.
We've been fairly honest with him about the Muslim ban, and he's generally very concerned about the safety of refugees, immigrants, and vulnerable communities under this discriminatory Republican administration.
So, in lieu of presents, for his upcoming 8th birthday, Simon has decided to raise funds for 412 Food Rescue, with the plan that the money raised will go to directly to programs that help local refugee communities.
The mission of 412 Food Rescue is to fight hunger by collecting fresh, healthy food that would otherwise be discarded and directly distributing to community organizations that serve those in need.
