Reading about Paris over the weekend was devastating. I hate DAESH, I hate bullies, I hate when people do things that make the world feel less safe and prove that people make the worst monsters. I am aware that things like this happen all the time and aren’t covered by the news – I’ve been following the crisis in Syria and I hate most of all that this has caused other countries to become hesitant to welcome refugees. I don’t know a whole hell of a lot but an entire nation has become unsafe for its own people.
Refinery 29 has a very helpful list of charities you can donate to, and things you can do to get involved!
Donate to the French Red Cross – Croix Rouge
Donate to Doctors Without Borders (I gave them $20) – Medicainssansfrontiers
Donate to Catholic Relief (They’re like the Red Cross) – Secours Catholique
If you’re in France, donate blood – French Blood Service
If you are an Airbnb host, you can give someone a temporary home. Details are here.
EDIT: I’ve been informed that they hate being referred to as DAESH, so that is how I will refer to them. Thanks, cb!
