Are you passionate about the Syrian refugee situation? Christopher Krambias, Jey Jeyabala and Matthew Butera (all of refugee or migrant background) have organised a fund raising event at CH James for the Collateral Repair Project (CRP), a grassroots organisation working out of Amman, Jordan to provide basic support to refugees. The event will be held on November 4th and ticket numbers are already strong. This is a great cause where the money goes to the grassroots need not to the administrators.
