We're excited to announce a special event with Chelsea Handler in San Francisco in collaboration with WeWork!
Comedian, talk show host, author, and activist, Chelsea Handler will be discussing today's trending issues, what's important now, and her passion for helping Syrian refugees.
Chelsea has been a longtime supporter of Karam Foundation. She has sponsored the education of dozens of Syrian refugee children for more than a year, helping stabilize Syrian refugee families living in Turkey so that their children do not have to work, and can instead access a quality education. Chelsea's generosity has extended to support Syrian families that have recently resettled in the United States. In May 2017, Chelsea made a generous contribution to Karam Foundation's pilot Jumpstart program for Syrian refugees, allowing us to provide transportation assistance and overall support to over 17 Syrian refugee families across 8 states.
Check out this video for a brief re-cap from last year's Lunch with Chelsea Handler in Chicago! We hope that you'll be able to join us in San Francisco next month for a casual, in-depth conversation about our work, Chelsea's passion for helping others, and how you can get involved! Be sure to get your tickets!
We're thrilled to announce the launch of our newest program – Jumpstart for Refugees! Jumpstart is our first US based program, designed to support newly resettled Syrian refugee families across the country. Watch the video below to learn more and how you can make a difference!
