A Syrian Refugee Child

Help Syrians

Escalating violence and political unrest in Syria show no signs of abating. The U.S. must continue to show leadership by providing humanitarian assistance to Syrian refugees and host communities.

Tell President Obama: support the civilians trapped inside Syria and the refugees forced to flee their homes.

Because You Care

It's not always easy to look in the face of suffering. But if we want to ease the burden shouldered by too many billions subsiding on less than $1 a day, we must pay attention. We must act. Take the pledge to say "I care" about our fellow human beings.

Sit Stay Read - Happy Tales for Wagging Tails

Reading to a dog increases confidence and generates excitement about reading. These trained dogs, assisted by dog-themed books and writing assignments, change a child's reading session from an abstract concept into a real life experience. Children get to read about a dog, see a dog, and touch a dog. This experience leads to true and lasting learning.

This Gift That Gives More provides an at-risk child a one-on-one reading session with a Sit Stay Read dog team in a school or community program.

Buses Urgently Needed for Safety of Afghan Schoolgirls
For a girl living in Afghanistan, going to school can be dangerous. In early November 2008, two men sprayed acid into the faces of girls as they walked to school, causing serious injury. In an effort to prevent further attacks, the Safe Ride to School program was created to purchase a school bus and hire a driver. Five years later, the bus is breaking down and we need to purchase another to ensure the girls of Mirwais Mena School get to class safely.

This Gift That Gives More helps a young Afghan girl get a safe ride to school by contributing to the purchase of a new bus.
