The best way to help those affected by a humanitarian crisis is by donating money rather than goods. Financial donations help support communities in crisis and in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. Financial donations are also critical for longer-term recovery efforts—they can respond to changing needs as people move to safety, resettle, or rebuild.
The number of forcibly displaced people has hit a record high with over 84 million people forced to flee from their homes due to conflicts and persecution. At this moment, millions of refugees and displaced people from Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen and Ukraine are facing the most challenging moment of their lives. Audiences are encouraged to support refugees at SupportCrisisRelief.org.
For communities impacted by natural disasters, this campaign enables us to get into market quickly, usually within a few days of a disaster, when funds are needed most. It’s been used to fundraise for disasters like the California wildfires; hurricanes Harvey, Maria, Irma, and Katrina; and the earthquake in Nepal. The disaster relief effort drives consumers to SupportDisasterRelief.org and encourage donations to support victims as they happen.
