Pakistan


No, that's not where we're going next ;) hahaha

I received this message earlier this week from a friend on Facebook and thought I'd share it:

Dear Kalli,

Long time. I hope you'd be aware of the flash floods in our country, which have been dubbed worse than the 2004 Tsunami by the U.N.

I'd highly appreciate if you can make a small donation for the flood victims in our area, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. I along with a few friends have been busy for the past three weeks in collecting relief goods/donations for those severely affected. The people were poor and downtrodden even before the disaster and now they're in a more sorry state. An overwhelming majority of them are without food, drinking water, shelter and medical help. Your small contribution will make a lot of difference for those in suffering.

You can send your contribution through the Western Union, which's quite easy, fast and efficient!

Kind regards

Sami 

I donated through this website:

100% goes to relief efforts. There aren't many charities out there that can say that. You can donate to the "emergency response" fund.

it's wonderful that you know so many people around the world now so you can know of needs that should be addressed.
