A tweet from Representative Matt Rosendale September 6th opposing the resettlement of 75 Afghan refugees in Montana has spurred a flood of donations. Soft Landing Missoula is a nonprofit that has worked with the International Rescue Committee to help refugees adapt to resettlement. It ended up getting close to $10,000 that evening and the next morning from 118 donors in 32 states. The “Afghan and New Arrivals Fund” has since raised another $4,000 from local donors.
