Los Angeles – May 26, 2020 – At a time when so many are feeling such hardship as a result of the pandemic we are reminded of the compassion and generosity in ways such as this. Bella Hadid, the American born model, made a show of support in the form of a donation to Preemptive Love Coalition in honor of Eid Al Fitr. Hadid is the daughter of Dutch born Yolanda and Muhammad Hadid who is of Palestinian descent. Eid Al Fitr is a day of celebration marking the end of Ramadan a month of fasting and prayer observed by Muslims worldwide.

The models shared a very heartfelt message on Saturday, May 24th to her Instagram account sharing the news and the meaning of the holiday. In it she stated that this time of year carried with it special memories of her childhood fasting with her father and her “Teta.” She wrote, “It makes my heart break thinking about children and families who are separated and unable to unite during the time. I want these children to know that they are so special and that there are people here that care about them.”

The Preemptive Love Coalition was founded by Jeremy Courtney and his wife Jessica over a decade ago after moving to Iraq in the middle of war. Preemptive Love Coalition is on the front-lines in areas ravaged by conflict stretching across Iraq, Syria, the United States, and beyond. Relying mainly on donations, they bring life saving aid to refugees and their families providing shelter to remake homes, medical care and vital supplies.

Through a unique program, they also provide the capital to help create jobs resulting in thousands of businesses, transforming communities and providing hope for their future. “When the world feels out of control and people everywhere are considering giving up hope altogether, Bella drops in and reminds us all that matters and calls us to love anyway. Preemptive Love couldn’t do what we do all over the world, providing relief on the front lines of war and revolutionizing the way refugees work, without friends like Bella. Influence at its best… giving it away, lifting others up,” said Courtney. 


Founded almost a decade ago by Jeremy Courtney and his wife Jessica after moving to Iraq during the war. Seeing first hand the devastation, they made a commitment to help these families who were not willing to give up their sovereignty and subject their families to perpetual displacement. PLC is on the front lines in the center of the conflict bringing urgent medical care, food, helping provide shelter and continue to serve the community long after the larger aid organizations finish their work.

Jeremy is also an author of two books Preemptive Love and Love Anyway and is a sought-after speaker, appearing on CNN, BBC, NBC, and other news outlets. Jeremy, his wife and their two children live in Iraq. Other notable supporters of PLC include Olympic Gold Medalist and FIFA World Soccer Champion Lauren (Cheney) Holiday who is also a Board Member, Susan Sarandon and Abby Disney, Kristen Bell is a supporter and also narrated a documentary short on the work of PLC titled Love Anyway.
