My Message

On October 2, I'm fundraising in the Ride for Refuge to call attention to some people and priorities that I feel really strongly about. And although it only takes a few hours of my time, I know it will make a difference. By participating in the RIDE, I'm speaking for people who have little or no voice and who often get left behind or ignored. And by fundraising, I'm supporting JOURNEY HOME COMMUNITY (JHC)  who is bringing hope and refuge to those same people.

The recent images of people trying to flee to safety in Afghanistan reminded me of the plight of my parents and their families as they had to flee to safety over ninety years ago!  That is one of the reasons that I have been volunteering for JHC.

Since JHC began their work over 16 years ago, they have helped over 100 refugee claimants from Afghanistan.  Today, they worry about the sarety of their families that stayed in Afghanistan.  This is just one example of the many families that JHC has helped with settlement support.

Thanks for supporting me! #ride21
