Thousands of Icelanders have offered their homes and support to Syrian refugees in an open letter on Facebook.By Ben Lawson | September 2, 2015
The Icelandic government says it's considering taking in more Syrian refugees after thousands of Icelanders on Facebook offered up their homes.
A Facebook event was created Sunday to encourage the Icelandic government to take in more refugees. The country had previously said it could only take in 50 people this year.
The Iceland Review Online translated a few of the posts made by people offering up their homes: "I’m happy to look after children, take them to kindergarten, school and wherever they need. I can cook for people and show them friendship and warmth. I can pay the airfare for one small family."
