“Every year on World Humanitarian Day, we shine a spotlight on the millions of civilians around the world whose lives have been caught up in conflict. On this day we also take a moment to honour the brave health and aid workers who are targeted or obstructed as they set out to help people in need, and pay tribute to the government employees, members of civil society and representatives of international organizations and agencies who risk their lives to provide humanitarian aid and protection.” — UN Secretary-General, António Guterres
So if you save a few dollars this weekend, please consider donating to a charity of your choice, such as monies to help the victims of the Charlottesville and Barcelona terror attacks. And if you can’t donate money, donate time at a local organization or donate blood at a local blood drive. #lovenothate
