An Indiegogo campaign to help a Syrian refugee family has raised a lot of money, and the funds could end up aiding other Syrian refugees too.
The campaign began after a co-founder of Conflict News tracked down Abdul, a Palestinian Syrian he heard was selling pens to support his children in Beirut. After Abdul was located, an Indiegogo page was set up along with a #BuyPens Twitter account to help the man raise money.
According to the campaign page, Abdul fled Syria with his family and became a single father of two when his wife wanted to go back to Syria.
