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.
