Paris Attacks

November 16th, 2015 at 9:59 am EST
Hello Friend,

Hard to believe what happened in Paris on Friday night. My family and I spent a week in Paris, and it was my favorite place that we visited in all of Europe.

My daughter has a 'Paris Saving Fund' to travel there with a friend when she graduates ( she's only 12)

I've been finding it hard to sleep, waking up with it.

How you can help victims of the Paris terror attacks

France is reeling from a wave of horrific terrorist attacks in central Paris late Friday night, killing at least 127 people, critically wounding at least 99 and injuring hundreds more in multiple parts of the city.

French President François Hollande closed the country's borders, and announced that 1,500 members of the military would flood the streets of Paris for added security. At least eight attackers have been killed; Paris police told the Associated Press that all attackers are believed dead. The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Support local organizations on the ground

French Red Cross (Croix-Rouge française)

The French Red Cross posted on its Facebook page Friday night and Saturday morning that it has mobilized 300 volunteers to bring relief to victims.

You can donate directly here (French) and here (English).

Médecins Sans Frontières

MSF, or Doctors Without Borders, was founded in Paris in 1971 and provides medical assistance internationally to populations whose life or health is threatened.

While it has not yet announced direct relief to victims, you can donate to MSF France here and find more information here.

Secours populaire française

This NGO fights against poverty and exclusion in France and throughout the world. Julien Lauprêtre, president of the organization, called for solidarity in an official statement, saying that in the aftermath of these events, great "gestures of humanity" are required.

You can donate to Secours populaire française here. You can also contact the organization here to volunteer time and skills.
