Many of you are probably now familiar with the Syrian refugee crisis:
More than four million refugees of the Syrian Civil War have left the country during the course of the war. Most of them fled to neighboring Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq, while thousands also ended up in more distant countries of the Caucasus, the Persian Gulf, North Africa and Europe. As of December 2015, Turkey was the world’s biggest refugee hosting country with close to 2.5 million Syrian refugees; the nation had spent more than 8 billion Euros since 2011 on direct assistance to them according to estimates by Turkish Ministry of Education deputy secretary Yusuf Büyük.
Terrorism, I did not know much about Syria until terrorism brought it to the forefront. Please understand that I make it a point not to worry about the entire world and its quarrels. It takes all the energy I have just to navigate my own life without being smooshed like a bug. We live in a society where money is king and that all mighty dollar keeps getting higher and higher until who can reach it? I am focused on what I can control and what I can control is in front of me. I can not stop the war in Syria. I can not stop the bombings and the death. I can stop the children from becoming corpses and the parents from crying as they cradle their tiny little heads smeared with blood…
What kind of ‘All American Girl’ am I when I see the world this way? What kind of joy can I know when for some hope truly is lost. There is no DISNEYLAND. There is no, “If you dream it you can do it.”
There is hunger. I sat and watched a video the other day. It was of little children sucking on bags of salt. There were in a hospital in Syria. There were caring people there but no supplies. There were only spices left.
Imagine your own child trapped that way. Imagine watching your baby starve in front of you until their flesh turns to a carcass in front of you, pick clean by internal feeding.
I leave my house each day and I know that people are not thinking about the these things.
Everyone is busy, “Taking care of our own.”
I am plagued by a problem that I could not find a solution for.
I found one. I found a way I can help. In my own way.
I can help the people in Syria. #Feedhope. I created my first charity based KEEP COLLECTIVE MYSTERY HOSTESS CAMPAIGN.
I was inspired to use the tools I have in front of me. I am a small business owner, a photographer of twelve years, A Smile Like Yours Photography of Lacey, Washington.
I am also a lead jewelry designer with #KEEPCOLLECTIVE. Keep is truly special to me because it will allow me to raise money to donate to help the people of Syria and beyond. I am scouting the following to donate to:
