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!

Threw this up on Late to the Theater, but wanted to make sure it got to as many folks as possible!
Start by not calling them ISIS, call they want other Arabs call the … Daesh
Gotcha. I’ve seen the term but didn’t know what it meant – thanks for the clarification!
