Congratulations on your performance in Rio!
My name is Kate, I'm 13 and I'm from Ottawa Ontario. I'm writing you because within the past week I've been working with a group of youth designing and planning to launch a campaign to raise awareness about the war going on in Syria. What we came up with is to start a challenge called #Salt4Syria, in which taste a small pinch of salt to 'taste the bitterness of war' and then share a video of yourself doing so on social media and nominate three more people to do it.
I've reached out to you specifically to ask if you would participate. I know that you've done similar things like this before, for example being a part of Jumpstart, and I know that you have a large audience of Canadian youth that look up to you. If you are interested in taking the challenge or want to learn more please visit our website, www.salt4syria.com.
Thank you for showing solidarity with Syrian youth,
Show your support for young Syrians under siege by filming yourself tasting a pinch of salt, and sharing the video online. Our aim is to raise awareness for youth living these past 4 years under siege in Eastern Ghouta.
