ARC kicks off 'I Am a Star for Somalia' Fundraiser
Saturday, July 28, 2012
Of course, there will be a lot of cheering during the Olympic Games, but a nonprofit based in Minneapolis hopes to turn those cheers into aid for refugees in Somalia.
On Friday, the American Refugee Committee kicked off it's "I am a Star for Somalia" campaign.
The idea is simple, just go to the "I Am a Star for Somalia" Facebook page and "Cheer" for Somali Olympians by "liking" or "posting" on the page.
Each cheer turns one link in a paper chain for Somalia and each link turns into $1.
The money will provide food and other aid to refugees in Somalia.
The goal is to raise $50,000 by the end of the Olympics.
