For the past few years Impact has made a commitment to donating $50 to an organization of choice for each employee in honor of #GivingTuesday. Stay tuned throughout the day to learn where each of us has chosen to give, starting now with two staff members who have chosen the same organization to support to help refugees.
Amanda Marcucci says:
I am making my donation to the UN High Commission for Refugees through USA for UNHCR.
Americans turning their backs on Syrian refugees out of fear means letting the terrorists win. We are telling them that they can divide us and teach us to fear each other. Hatred and fear have never solved a single problem, but love and acceptance can heal the world.
Kathy Swayze says:
The current refugee crisis has been called the worst humanitarian crisis of our time.
I saw long lines of refugees during my visit to Europe this fall, and I knew then I wanted to make support for refugees a priority in my year-end giving.
My #GivingTuesday donation goes to USA for UNHCR to send help to refugees on the run.
I’m very proud and grateful that Impact can make our own small difference this #GivingTuesday.
