All three organizations featured in Jeremy Lin’s video linked below will receive funding from the JLIN Foundation, though the org who receives the most votes on the MAD Project’s page will benefit from additional visits and exposure by Jeremy.

*For your friends who may not have heard of us, PAIR improves the lives of young refugees—newcomers to Houston who have escaped war and persecution at home. Through mentoring, tutoring, and college access programs, we help them face the challenge of learning a new language and adapting to a new way of life.
