Students Raise Funds for Humanitarian Support

The following comes from a Facebook friend  (narrating the video below) who since his 2010 high school graduation, has worked to bring awareness to the seriously disenfranchised and, most recently, Syrian refugees.

"Syria Deeply on Campus is a national movement made up of more than 30 colleges and universities all working together to increase awareness about the Syrian refugee crisis and raise funds for humanitarian support of the hundreds of thousands of Syrians affected by the ongoing civil war. As  leaders, activists, and academics on our campuses we feel passionately about assisting all who have been affected by the conflict, especially those taking refuge in neighboring states of Syria," the website explains.

 Their current campaign is to "...raise $15,000 ($500 per university) to purchase temporary winter-proof homes–otherwise known as 'Caravans'–for a number of Syrian families currently residing in the Zaatari Refugee Camp in northern Jordan."
