A home can mean many things. Warmth. Good food. Family. It's where many of us go to feel safe and be with the ones we love, especially at this time of year. But for so many refugee families, home no longer exists.
This Giving Tuesday, you can give families a sense of home – no matter where they are. You can help us provide immediate shelter, warm meals, blankets and clean water in the toughest places on earth. You can help us reunite families who have been torn apart, giving them a safe space to be together and rebuild their lives. What's more, this Giving Tuesday a generous IRC partner is matching all donations, meaning your gift will go twice as far.
Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving, a day to pause, reflect on the year and take the time to give back. We hope you will choose to support the IRC on Giving Tuesday this year, as your support is more critical today than ever before. Right now, there are more refugees and displaced people than at any other time in history. The Syrian war is still raging on, forcing more families to flee for their lives. In Yemen, where war has cut off food supplies, power and health care, home has become a place where each day, families struggle to survive.
Make a matched donation now to help us give these families immediate, lifesaving support and a better start to 2020. Home may be far away for refugee and asylum-seeking families, but because of you, rescue is close by.
Gifts will be matched until midnight on December 3rd, or until the matched giving fund is exhausted.
