Lexi and Demetri currently live in New York City. They lived in Damascus, Syria from 2009-2010 and are committed to helping Syrians displaced by the civil war. In the beginning of 2013, they raised close to $10,000 and traveled to Jordan to volunteer with Syrian refugees. Since then, they have continued to collect donations and have raised nearly $30,000 for Syrian refugees living in Jordan. When not travelling, Demetri is a law student at Columbia University and Lexi works as a marketing manager at Al Jazeera America.
