Do Something To Help!

16 Nov

Reading about Paris over the weekend was devastating. I hate DAESH, I hate bullies, I hate when people do things that make the world feel less safe and prove that people make the worst monsters. I am aware that things like this happen all the time and aren’t covered by the news – I’ve been following the crisis in Syria and I hate most of all that this has caused other countries to become hesitant to welcome refugees. I don’t know a whole hell of a lot but an entire nation has become unsafe for its own people. 

Refinery 29 has a very helpful list of charities you can donate to, and things you can do to get involved!

Donate to the French Red Cross – Croix Rouge

Donate to Doctors Without Borders (I gave them $20) – Medicainssansfrontiers

Donate to Catholic Relief (They’re like the Red Cross) – Secours Catholique

If you’re in France, donate blood – French Blood Service

If you are an Airbnb host, you can give someone a temporary home. Details are here.

EDIT: I’ve been informed that they hate being referred to as DAESH, so that is  how I will refer to them. Thanks, cb!

      Gotcha. I’ve seen the term but didn’t know what it meant – thanks for the clarification!

... but what do YOU think?
