AVSI-USA’s Annual Campaign 2020-2021 gives you the opportunity to expand your horizons, to look out at the world and get involved in the good happening around us.  This is a chance for you to share your life with others in need. A simple gesture and sacrifice can bring you to experience the joy of giving. We call this solidarity and charity.
