Yasmine Runs for Humanity in New York City Marathon 2019
Hello Tribe! Yasmine here, Solana's Founder 👋
I wanted to share an update on our IRC fundraiser. For those of you who don’t know, I’ve decided to run the New York City Marathon this November with the IRC’s Team Rescue 🏃🏻♀️ The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises by helping displaced people around the world rebuild their lives.
This is a cause I deeply care about, and I believe the IRC is among the most efficient and competent organizations in the world, with roughly 90% of revenue going directly into its program services. Our initial goal was $3K, but with the overwhelming support of friends, family, and our own Solana community (💗), we raised it to $7K, and now to $15K!! We are currently at $11,055 thanks to you and have nearly 3 weeks to go!
I am deeply grateful to everyone who has participated and I can promise you that your donations are making a real difference in the world, especially in light of the recent events in Northern Syria.

With Peace, Yasmine ✌🏼
