The Palestinian Youth Movement joined by MECA are putting on a fundraiser for the refugees of Syria. This fundraiser is specifically going to Al Nakab center in Lebanon. This center is run by our Lebanon chapter and has been providing aid for refugees for years. Please take the time to read this email and help support us in any way that you can. This fundraiser is ending with an event that will be March 22.

Al Nakab Center is a 100% grassroots youth-organized initiative that is providing educational and cultural activities for Syrian and Palestinian refugees from Syria, as well as providing a community resource and gathering space for families in the area, filling in an essential gap facing the refugees. Our goal is to raise a minimum of $11,000 to support the center's educational program for the next 6 months. Our fundraising campaign will culminate in a cultural event at the beginning of March to bring together our community to support our sisters and brothers back home.
