What's Your New Year's Resolution?
A note from Communications team member, Jenelle Eli:
Those sit-ups won’t do themselves. This is a lesson I learn every February when I drop the ball on my ambitious resolution to get in tip-top soccer shape. Luckily, I’m not alone. In fact, 88% of those who set New Year’s resolutions don’t succeed. Sound familiar?
How about trying something different in 2013? Make this your New Year’s resolution: Raise $100 for Refugees and Immigrants. When you donate $100 to USCRI, you make a massive impact on the people we serve. Your $100 will empower victims of human trafficking; protect immigrant children crossing the border without parents; provide opportunities to resettled refugees; and ensure that persecuted individuals all around the world have a voice.

So we’re providing you with a nifty list of 100 Ways to Raise $100 for Refugees and Immigrants that will not only inspire you, but will get your community involved as well. Garden party, anyone?
