During moments of crisis, the true measure of humanity is often revealed by the actions of those who choose to help.

So many of you created birthday fundraisers, hosted bake sales, ran marathons, donated proceeds from your small businesses, hosted and created fundraising events, asked for donations in lieu of wedding gifts, created raffles, and so, so much more.

Your support did not just deliver items and meals, it provided brief moments of relief to those who fear they’ve been forgotten. Thank you for being a source of light amid the darkness and for giving your time, talent, and treasure to help Palestinians in need.
