Rashida Jones - International Rescue Committee
"The International Rescue Committee—IRC—was founded in 1933 to help people escape Nazi Germany, and now offers food, water, and healthcare to people displaced by emergencies or war. Once those people are resettled, the IRC helps them become citizens and integrate into their new culture. After visiting a refugee camp in Thailand that the IRC provides assistance to, I was touched by the human ability to adapt when given the right tools."

How you can help: You can buy a Rescue Gift—for instance, a community garden toolkit or a woman's small business training—or organize a fundraising event to support the IRC's work. Or simply follow the IRC on Facebook and sign their pledge to build a better future for women and girls.
