My name is Holly, and I am the founder of Smie Again Inc.
As a young child I remember seeing immages of the starving children in Etheopia, the brutal immages of the Rwanda Genocide, and most recently, the thousands of rape victims in the Congo. I remember sheding tears on their behalf, but knowing there was nothing I could. It was easy to turn off the television and put it all aside, after all it did not directly affect my life and it was another world away.
Today some of these people, that were the suffering children of my childhood, have now come into my life. They have names and faces that I can no longer put aside, and they are seeking help from our government in the form of political asylum. They have become some of my dearest friends and are in desperate need of our help. I would like to do everything in my power to help end their suffering. Many have fled their countries with nothing but the clothes on their backs, and all of them have been seperated from their families. Because of the danger to their families we cannot mention specific names on line.
Smile Again Inc. is a 501-C-3 non profit organization that has been specifically formed to help these refugees. They are in desperate need of assistance with legal fees, and all of them have families that have been left behind and are in danger. Any donations will be used to meet the immediate needs of these people as well as to help bring thier families to saftey once the asylum process is complete. Additionally, we would like to help send aide to a womens rape center in the congo that is struggling to save the lives of thousands of rape vicitms that are in need of medical care. All donations are tax deductible and 100% of the money collected is sent directly to those people in need.
