We are an informal group of human beings, horrified and appalled by the atrocities committed by ISIS and the resulting humanitarian crisis. All of the charities proposed here have personnel on the ground. Like so many -- maybe you -- we, too, watched helplessly as our fellow human beings suffer inhuman, unspeakable horror in the cradle of Western civilization.
We are powerless only when we stand alone. There is something each of us can do: pass the word about us to others, get involved in activism, support the charities regularly. According to our abilities, there is something for each of us to do.
We offer charities for your consideration, some long-established, others that have emerged for the task at hand. Please consider becoming a regular supporter of a charity of your choice.
