Important Update

Standard

To my great dismay, the head of the Boulder nonprofit Humanwire, established to crowdsource support for Syrian refugee families, has been arrested and is being tried for theft from the organization. Because I cannot verify that my funds have reached the families they were intended for, this month I will be making a donation to a more long-established nonprofit in equal amount to what I previously provided to Humanwire. I will continue donating 50% of funds from sales of Rasha’s Letter  to relief efforts for Syrian refugees, but will not be routing these through Humanwire, but instead to either UNICEF’s relief mission in Syria or to Doctors Without Borders, both of which continue to deliver critical aid.

This is one of the most pressing humanitarian crises of our time, and I urge you all to do what you can.
