Twenty-two

"As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands,
one for helping yourself, the other for helping others."
Audrey Hepburn

I'm truly blessed...many of us are. Being able to sleep soundly and wake up freshly is a privilege majority of the world do not and cannot experience. A few days before my birthday, I learned about the chemical weapon attack in a village in Syria. It is a completely horrifying thing to happen to anyone or to happen in this world at all and that goes with all the mistreatments, killings, and other negative occurrences we hear and see in the news daily.

Since I'm big on the two's this year, I've decided donating to two charity funds who are helping with the Syrian crisis and you should too! Save the trip to Chipotle and/or Starbucks and use that money to help instead. As little as $5 or $10 can go a long way. I've included three organizations below and you can also check out this article from Harper's Bazaar for more choices: "14 Ways You Can Help the People of Syria."

1. UNICEF
2. The White Helmets
3. Doctors Without Borders

Love,
Allyssa
