We have our fun around here, but sometimes things get serious. I thought it might be nice to have a thread to promote worthy charities and whatnot. So I'm going to tell you about Small Projects Istanbul
, a charity that helps Syrian refugees, particularly school-age children. One of my friends, who just came back from several months in Istanbul, volunteered there and has only good things to say about them. Among other things, they provide money to kids to help them pay school fees, or to cover the money they would have earned while in class. They also have a craft collective
, where Syrian women make bracelets, earrings, and rings, the proceeds of which support SPI's efforts.
