In July 2016, Miry Whitehill was a stay-at-home mom living in Southern California when a friend introduced her to a family of new arrival refugees from Syria—a dad, mom and their twin 5-year-old girls and 5-month-old baby boy. Whitehill’s friend, Suzanne, wanted to find a secondhand Fisher-Price Jumperoo chair (a chair that bounces and spins with toys that keep baby busy), so the tired parents could take a break. New Jumperoos cost between $70 and $130.
