During his time in Iraqi Kurdistan, Jonny has been helping to save the lives of men, women, even children from the constant, devastating and inhumane attacks by ISIS. Jonny and his team have also been the target of these [unsuccessful] attacks. We will certainly be lucky to have him back safely. But for those left behind, whether alive or perished, their stories will go untold and their lives will be forgotten before they ever had a chance to be remembered. Jonny has been taking photos, recording videos, and learning about the people who have been affected most during this conflict. At the moment Jonny does not have the means to buy a computer to transfer and communicate these images, videos, and stories to the world.
Further burying these tragic events from the records of history, only to exist within the affected communities; the forgotten, the denied, the massacred.
Please help us help Jonny tell these stories. Please pitch in today! Your generous donation will go to an Apple gift card so Jonny can purchase a MacBook. With this, he will be able to transfer all the videos, photos, and stories that he's taken while in Iraqi Kurdistan and will then be able to share it with the world. We are aiming for just $1,500. Additional funds exceeding this amount will go towards an unrestricted prepaid Visa gift card to Jonny OR to a non-profit of his choice. We will let you, the donors decide which is best-- but only if we are able to exceed the $1.5k goal.
PLEASE keep this fundraiser private. We are hoping to surprise Jonny with this gift. Do not share this fundraiser on social media. Instead, you may share the link directly with friends or invite them into the secret Facebook group for more information.
At the moment we are unable to offer anything in return of your generous donation other than our deep, heartfelt gratitude.
"But we must be aware that our collective indifference and inaction not only affects those denied. Our collective humanism is denied in the process, and our very existence becomes meaningless. Because when one man is denied of his freedom and dignity, all men are." -Hoshang Farhad
