To all “Shmoos” everywhere and especially those involved with hosting ShmooCon, THANK YOU!
While this update is long delayed, it isn’t without a deep respect for both Bruce and Heidi Potter who never cease to amaze me with their conference and generosity. After years apart, ShmooCon 2022 once again balanced the chaos of this world with the necessity to embrace all that life throws at us. THANK YOU for stepping out in faith!
This year, ShmooCon raised thousands towards our current efforts, help newly arrived Afghan refugees settle into our country. During the conference, we were blessed to have Munir join us for a personal discussion on his story.
We previously blogged about our efforts and partnered with Love AACO, a fantastic non-profit located in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. Love AACO launched Collaboration 3.0, a program focused on delivering food, clothing, and other resources to these families. We have had the privilege of hearing their stories, developing new friendships and discovering the complex challenges newly arrived Afghans are facing. Your support and donations are fully dedicated to that effort.
