A Heroes' Holiday

The White Helmets won’t take a day off this holiday season. With every falling bomb, the volunteers will pull on their white helmets and rush to the site of the attack, risking their own lives to save others.

These men and women give everything, so this holiday season let’s give something back. There are 3,400 White Helmets volunteers. The idea is to bring together 3,400 people to chip in for an end of year gift for the volunteers to take home to their families.

The White Helmets have given so much this year. In April they were first on the scene of a major chemical attack, washing down kids and getting people to medical care. In June, volunteers in Daraa didn’t sleep for days as airstrikes pounded their towns. In November while families in Ghouta were forced into their basements to hide from the relentless bombing the White Helmets remained on the streets responding where needed, saving 200 lives. This year alone they have saved more than 21,881 lives across Syria.

White Helmet rescue workers are all volunteers. They receive monthly stipends when money is available, but it’s not always guaranteed. A monthly stipend is $150 -- our goal is to match this amount as a holiday surprise for the volunteers this month.

This gift won't make them run faster to a bombsite. It won't protect them from the bombs that continue to rain down from the sky. But it will go a long way to help with high living costs for the volunteers and their families this month. Perhaps some more food, fuel, or ability to travel to see their loved ones.

In the periods when the bombs have stopped the volunteers have been busy doing all they can to make life liveable. They’re providing prenatal care in areas with scarce medical services, teaching communities how to prepare for attacks, and defusing unexploded weapons across the country.

The White Helmets motto is ‘to save a life is to save all of humanity’. We don’t all get a chance to save lives but this is our chance to send support to those that do. What we give is so much more than money, it’s a deep show of solidarity and support for their mission.
