September 21st 2013 - Volunteer Groups Nationwide

On Saturday, September 21, in cities across the U.S., our volunteer groups and supporters will be hosting outdoor events sending kites flying high!  Join us in this celebration of peace, of hope and connection with children and families around the world.  

Beyond the beauty and joy of this celebration: we are taking action with significance by helping to heal the wounds of war. 

Our goal is to raise $25,000.  With these funds, EMERGENCY USA continues its lifesaving mission of supporting programs that are permanent and sustainable, centers of excellence rather than temporary facilities, that provide high-standard, specialized medical treatment -- free-of-charge -- to civilian victims of war in around the world.  We support ongoing programs in places like Afghanistan, Central African Republic, Iraq, Sierra Leone, and Sudan.

Participate by joining or setting up a team on our Firstgiving page.  Next, just spread the word, email and invite friends to join the event or to donate and become a champion for this great cause with you. On September 21, send a kite up with us (hint:  picnics are also recommended).

Thank you for taking action in support of our mission!
