Today some links + places to give, as well as a rabbit hole I found myself in and photos of my dog. Enjoy.
Shared on IG this week, plus added context:
*Clarification: we are not affiliated with or fundraising in the name of the Lebanese Red Cross. We are raising funds for a number of NGOs whose needs we are currently assessing with the support of @3qahub
. We are inspired by the work of the Lebanese Red Cross and are donating the first £100,000 to support their work.*
We are all in shock witnessing the massive explosion that happened at the port of Beirut on 4 August 2020. The extent of the damages is devastating. Our people in Lebanon have been suffering through a difficult financial crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are calling on the world, our friends, our fellow Lebanese in the diaspora to donate to help us provide disaster relief. We are reaching out to the Lebanese Red Cross and various NGOs who will need our help and we will update the page providing exact details on how your money will be spent. We will be diligent in making the donations and will be able to provide more clarity as soon as possible. *UPDATE: The first set of donations will go to the Lebanese Red Cross by direct bank transfer tomorrow.
Link in bio to donate.
