Our Founder Turns 30, Supports Migrants and Refugees

Dear fellow citizens of the world,

My birthday is next week and I have been asked by loved ones what I would like to receive this year. I have three birthday wishes, as I turn 30, one for each decade of life:

  1. Please vote on my birthday – November 6th – in the midterm elections if you are a U.S. citizen. If you reside in the U.S., but are not yet a citizen, you can still phone bank and volunteer If you are disillusioned, I get it, but vote anyway. Your voice matters and I refuse to believe that it doesn’t. (Visit vote.org to register to vote and find your polling place).
  2. Make a donation to The Women Worldwide Initiative during the month of November to contribute to high-impact, cost-effective solutions that help refugees and those displaced by war, persecution, or natural disaster. All donations during this month will go to the International Rescue Committee. We love the IRC because they understand the importance of investing in the psycho-social well-being of vulnerable populations and all of their work focuses on breaking down barriers faced by women and girls.
  3. Dance the night away with me and the TWWI family at Inmotion Present‘s iconic event, the Good Vibes Party NYC, on Saturday, November 10th. RSVP here for free entry before midnight… and donate (see birthday wish #2) what you would usually pay for a ticket.

The photo above is of me and my father in Texas on my 6th birthday. I immigrated to the United States as a child and recently became an U.S. citizen. I am a firm believer in the saying, “to whom much is given, much is expected.” I have been given so much in my life and part of my giving back is the work we do through Women Worldwide to lift up the women and girls who need it most. Thank you for continuing to help us advance this mission. The world is not getting easier, but supporting each other through love and compassion always makes a world of difference.

Many thanks and much love,

Uraidah Hassani

Founder and Executive Director
