Robin Yassin-Kassab is heading out to the Turkish border later this week to help the Syrian refugees.
Robin is part of a team that has raised $30,000 so far, with donations as far afield as the United States as well as the United Kingdom.
$20 will buy a coat, blanket and hat for a child out in Syria.
