Chris Young is a pretty interesting guy with a big mission. You can watch the above video to learn more about him.

Chris has a special place in his heart for Sudan because he's spent a lot of time in the refugee camps that tens of thousands of Sudanese call home. The government of Sudan has been attacking people in the country’s Nuba Mountains since 2011. After watching their homes and communities be destroyed, many people fled to camps in South Sudan. Chris first visited them in 2013 to see how his church could help. 

One of the biggest needs Chris saw was education and he's decided to do something about. He recently joined our Endure Campaign with a pledge to raise $15,000 to support our educational program in the refugee camps. Chris has already raised several thousand dollars on his own, but he needs your help to make it the rest of the way. There are two things you can do to help him reach his goal:

1. Donate Towards His Fundraising Goal »

2. Join His Team And Raise $250 »

Our friends in Sudan are relying on people just like Chris to help ensure their get an education. By joining Chris and becoming part of his already amazing story, you can make that happen.
