No More Deaths has launched its first ever online crowdfunding campaign to raise money for our vehicle expenses so we can keep our volunteers rolling year-round.

Our trucks are vital to getting water and aid to migrants and refugees in southern Arizona’s backcountry. We hope to raise $47,842—the real annual cost of maintaining our trucks—by May 1.

All donations go directly to No More Deaths. Continue reading NMD launches campaign to maintain its desert trucks
