On May 19th, I will be running my first half marathon to raise money for Save The Children's Yemen Relief Fund. I would love to have you partner with me. Any donation is appreciated- there is none too small!
Save the Children is an international non-profit organization that promotes children's rights around the world and provides relief in developing countries. They have set up a Yemen Relief Fund to provide life-saving assistance to the millions of children facing starvation in Yemen. The United Nations has called the crisis in Yemen the worst famine in the world in 100 years. 85,000 children under the age of five have died from starvation so far and these deaths were completely preventable.
Amidst such a large humanitarian crisis, it's easy to think that we can't truly make a difference or that a $10 donation won't go that far. I would argue it's too big a crisis to do nothing at all. These children need your help!
If you are interested in running the race or fundraising yourself, please reach out. I'd love to have you participate or join my fundraising team!
Thank you so much for your support!!
