We’ve been knee deep in client projects and we couldn’t be more excited about the installs we have coming up. As with so many industries right now, there are major delays. However, for interior designers and our clients, the delays are becoming progressively longer. Our team has been working hard to investigate lead times, collaborate with vendors and coordinate installs (or even partial installs when needed) to ensure our clients can enjoy their homes as quickly and fully as possible.
While I would love to share my favorite link ups this month, the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan has been heavy on our hearts. This month's edition of The Edit is dedicated entirely to how we can all be generous with our time and and intentional with our financial energy to support the people in Afghanistan.
How to Help Afghan Refugees
More than a dozen cities around the United States are actively welcoming Afghan refugees. LIRS Connect is coordinating volunteers to help with services like airport pick-ups, apartment set-ups, or bringing a meal. You can sign up to volunteer to support our Afghan Allies in your region here.
As with every humanitarian crisis, financial contributions from donors large and small are key to a successful effort. Even if you can't donate you time, consider thoughtfully donating to Women for Afghan Women, International Refugee Assistance Project, and the Afghan Journalists Safety Committee.
Stay informed. A huge part of making sure Afghan refugees make it safely out of Afghanistan and into their new homes is ensuring that the public is up to date on what is happening. Being a mindful citizen opens opportunities to be more welcoming and supportive of those forced to flee their homes. We’ve mentioned The Daily Podcast as well and they have done a great recap of what is happening
I’ve been long time supporter of the International Rescue committee, a non-profit working to provide proper nutrition to children around the world. 87 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to feeding children in need. This program is near and dear to my heart, as all children deserve a chance at a wonderful life.
