Run for Relief: October 18th, 2013

Published: October 7, 2013

We need your help!

M. Kendall Ludwig, president and principal designer of CurlyRed, will be running in a 5k to benefit a Ugandan family seeking asylum in the US. This family of a mother, father, and three small children is from Uganda. They have fled their country and are seeking asylum in the United States. In Africa, they were being persecuted by the government and have come here as refugees. They arrived in the United States with the clothes on their back and very little else.

Gaining asylum in the United States is a long and tedious process and, while waiting, there are restrictions on obtaining a work permit. At this point, the family has no income and has been relying on donations from churches and individuals to survive.

Any money we can raise before the 19th will go directly to help this family with their living expenses until they can legally earn their own way. Thank you for reading, your support and encouragement! To donate to this great cause, please go here:
