Spread Some Holiday Survival

Are you breathing? Are you safe from bombs and bullets and madmen who want to kill you? Have you got food and water? Awesome! Throw some gratitude out there by helping people who aren't. I have all that plus clothes, heat, a car that runs, indoor plumbing, and a paved road right outside my house that runs right past a hospital and a library. Peeps in Syria ain't so lucky.

Russia and Assad and their pals don't give a damn about letting civilians evacuate. The buses that were FINALLY supposed to be taking people out are being stopped by vermin and the ceasefire that was supposed to let them go is trashed.

If any civilians of Aleppo that haven't already been murdered survive, it'll be because of people like the White Helmets, Doctors Without Borders/Medicins Sans Frontieres, Oxfam, Amnesty International, the International Red Cross, and others who've been doing the boots on the ground hard work all along without much help from government talking heads.

And because of you, if you're in. Even $5.00 is a lot of money when you gang it up with other fivers from 100, or 500, or 1,000 other people that are sick of what's been going on in Syria for the last four years.

And people that are sick of hearing people make stupid remarks like "we don't want them in our country, they need to stay in their own country and sort out their own problems". For the average person, there's not really much of their country left to stay in and sort out. I'd rather those people got to survive at all than draw so many hard lines in the sand about where they do it.
