I work with independent volunteers and grassroots organizations to help extremely vulnerable refugees around the world. I am not always the host of the fundraiser, but I am always part of a team of people I trust to take care of folks who would otherwise slip through the cracks.

A group of us–eight of Iman’s biggest fans–banded together to raise funds to help them secure a spot in Canada in 2018. Learn more…
