Together We Showed That We #CantDoNothing!


This year, in honor of World Refugee Day, more than 330 people joined our campaign to say that we #CantDoNothing about thousands of refugee children missing out on their education. 

It mattered!

In just a couple of days, and with an extremely generous matching contribution from an anonymous donor, we raised over $20,000!!

This will go directly towards The Syria Fund's education programs for Syrian refugee children in Jordan. Specifically, your donations will help fund:

  • 5 monthly teacher salaries for the next year
  • Arabic, English, Math, Science, Music, IT and Art programming with necessary supplies
  • Backpacks with essential school supplies for more than 100 students
Special thanks to  Milana Vayntrub  for her powerful #CantDoNothing message and to  Kristen Bell ,  Reza Aslan  and more for helping us get the word out!
