LAKE FOREST, IL - Karam Foundation is excited to announce our 5th annual Giving Tuesday campaign. This year, Karam will partner with Students Organize 4 Syria (SOS) for our third consecutive collaborative campaign.
Giving Tuesday is an international day of giving that is fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday was created in order to motivate people to give back to their community at home and abroad. This event officially kicks off the charitable season, a time during which many people focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
In the last two years, Karam Foundation was able to collect an average of $150,000 in donations used toward winter aid packages for thousands of Syrian families. Winter aid packages include winter clothing, heaters, heating fueal, and firewood.
Determined to surpass last year’s goal and maintain the level of successfulness achieved in the past, Karam and SOS are calling on people of conscious to support Dares 4 Syria to help keep Syrians warm this winter. The Dares4Syria campaign is designed so that people from across the globe can participate in a fun way, supporting different teams that will perform dares in order to receive donations. The dares range anywhere from telling a stranger a joke to jumping into a cold body of water.
All donations will benefit Karam’s Winter Aid program. A donation of as little as $20 will keep one Syrian child warm this winter and supply them with a winter package, consisting of one coat, one scarf, one hat, one pair of gloves, and a blanket.
