Giving Tuesday Match Extension

We're extending the match and set a new goal of sending 2,500 winter survival kits to refugee families trying to make it through this bitter cold winter.

Each winter survival kit costs $127 and provides families with five thermal blankets, three mattresses, winter clothes and a plastic sheet to insulate their tent — essentials that can mean the difference between life and death.
