Feeling helpless as you watch the news each day?  Want to give something, but you’re not sure which charities are safe and/or will get the aid in and get things done?

UNRWA – the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Refugees in the Near East – has a special Gaza appeal.

Islamic Relief in conjunction with al Maghrib Institute is hosting an ilminar/fundraise online tonight.  I’ve donated to IRW for years and have never had any trouble.   IRW has people on the ground in Gaza, and is currently providing aid.
