Like a lot of people, the news coming out of Syria and other conflict regions often leaves feeling completely hopeless. I wanted to help but had no idea where to begin.
Then, a few months ago, I listened to a podcast interview with CNN Senior International correspondent Arwa Damon. She has covered conflicts throughout the Middle East and northern Africa and channeled her own sense of dismay into INARA. Her incredible organization provides life-altering medical care for children from conflict areas who have catastrophic injuries or illnesses and are unable to access treatment due to war.
I can't think of a better way to celebrate my birthday than to give back to children who don't have access to the resources or support I had growing up. Please help me reach my $3200 goal to celebrate 32 Flavors (and then some)!
If you live in the Washington, D.C. area, you can also join me for a happy hour on Friday, September 22nd. Twenty percent of the proceeds from the bar will be donated to INARA. More information coming soon!
