Raindrop Foundation is pleased to announce our participation in a blanket drive organized by Embrace Relief in collaboration with the Northern Virginia Regional Commission (NVRC).

It is an effort to collect blankets for refugees who have fled Syria and Iraq for Turkey due to the erupting violence in Syria and Iraq. The effort is to help Syrian and Iraqi refugee families in need during the harsh winter months what will soon be upon them.

Last year, 18,000 blankets were collected and shipped to Turkey. Since 2013, the crisis in Syria has only grown worse with now more than one million Syrian refugees living in Turkey alone. Refugee camps have outgrown their capacity and refugees are surviving on makeshift shelters in border cities. Now, with further unrest in the area, Iraqi refugees have started fleeing to Turkey causing the amount of people in dire need to multiply by the thousands on a regular basis.

The blanket drive will take place from November 1, 2014 through November 22, 2014. We ask for your support in our effort to provide warmth to these people in need.

Raindrop Foundation is participating in this aid program with monetary donation. Please consider that the cost of one blanket is $10.00 when you are making your monetary donation for this aid program.

You may go on to http://embracerelief.org/donations/ and find “Donate Blanket Drive for Syrian/Iraqi Refugees” button.

Please remember that every dollar donated counts. Your contributions will be used to provide a blanket and go towards the purchase of basic necessities required for caring for the Syrian and Iraqi refugees in Turkey.

Raindrop Foundation is grateful for your donations and support for this humanitarian effort.

With kind regards,
