Our little corner of the world has come together to do what we do best when communities are in crisis… rally together and give! The Legacy Giving Circle has generously donated the first $25,000 towards the $50,000 needed to help Global Empowerment Mission (GEM) with their work in assisting Palestinian and Israeli families in need.
Please note, these efforts are as of 11/13/23 and are subject to change as the needs of those affected change, but Legacy Collective and GEM are committed to supporting those evacuating and in need of assistance equally from both Israel and Gaza.
GEM Bstrong has embarked on a mission to provide relief to families affected by the recent events in Israel and Gaza. In Israel, GEM Bstrong has partnered with SmartAID and in Palestine, GEM Bstrong has partnered with Anera to provide immediate relief. The Legacy funding will be split equally between the two groups.
Once the border to Egypt opens and refugees begin evacuating, GEM intends to use funding to assist refugees from both Israel and Gaza fleeing the war zone. The needs will either be immediate relief supplies such as food, tents, cots, etc or temporary relocation assistance. Depending on funding and capacity, GEM is prepared to offer relocation services. The average cost to relocate a family for 30 days is $5,333.
We are halfway to our goal and need YOUR help. Give and assist families in need today!
