#GivingTuesday: International Rescue Committee

For the last four days, we’ve been inundated with deals. Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday. Today is a bit different, today is #GivingTuesday. Now in its 7th year, this is the day set aside to give back to our communities.

If you can help out at your local shelter or food bank, do. They’ll appreciate your help, and a little bit of effort will go a long way. If you’re looking for a charity to support today and you have the means, I’d like to suggest one that is near and dear to both Kari-Lise’s and my heart: the International Rescue Committee.

Founded on the request of Albert Einstein in 1933, the IRC’s goal is to provide aid to refugees displaced from war, persecution, or natural disasters and help them become self-sufficient. They originally were founded to help those fleeing from Nazi Germany but as the need grew so did their mission. Today, they do critical work, and I’m proud to be a supporter. Kari-Lise and I have sponsored families in the past, and now we give to them monthly. They make it really easy. Just click here and see how you can help.

Let’s help the IRC be a refuge for the refugee.
