Shortly before season six of Game of Thrones, we offered you a spot at the official premiere and after-party… all to support the incredible work of the International Rescue Committee (IRC).
The IRC responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises by restoring safety, health, education, economic well-being and power to people whose lives have been devastated by conflict and disaster— their current focus is responding on all fronts to the crisis in Europe and the Middle East. Your generosity was incredible, and now, brace yourselves, awesome impact is coming.
Your donations helped support initiatives providing refugees around the world with safe housing, supplies necessary for children’s education and apprenticeship programs for adults. These apprenticeship programs are really awesome. Refugees are able to connect with employers for three-month periods, where they learn valuable trades and skills that allow them to be self-reliant so they can build a future in their new home. With your help, over 300 apprentices have been matched with 200 employers. High fives all around.
Because of your support, the IRC is improving the livelihoods of so many people around the world and providing opportunities for families to thrive. That’d make the Realm proud.
