Aid (food, clothes, shelter, medicine) for the civilians caught in the fighting in Gaza.
Those of you who know me, know I am neither an activist or into 'politricks' of any kind. But as a human being living on planet Earth, I am dismayed and disgusted at the treatment of my fellow citizens in Gaza at the present time. While the mainstream media features no shortage of officials and talking heads speaking for the Israeli govt., there is no one speaking up on behalf of the innocents, who are bearing the brunt of the violence, death, and destruction.
Since my wife is Palestinian, with family living in the occupied territories, I have a direct link to what is going on there, as well as a means of getting money directly to those who need it most, and, therefore, feel a responsibility to help in any way I can. We are taking a trip to see her family in Jordan in March, and while there, we plan to visit Israel and Palestine. We can help the civilians in Gaza, who have been displaced and caught up in this recent round of terror.
I believe that Food, Clothes & Shelter are a basic human right for every citizen on the planet. Living here in the U.S. with all the rights, privileges, and creature comforts that we have it is difficult to see innocent children being bombed half a world away. The least we can do is to provide some assistance to those in need at this crucial time, and I'm hoping you all can help. Every small contribution counts, and you have my word of honor that every penny contributed will go directly to providing relief for the people of Gaza. As I said before, I do not deal with politics, and I do not believe that war, or that violence will solve anything. But I have been moved to action by the stark injustice that I see going on around me. Together with your help, we can make an impact.
