Burma Cyclone Relief Project Update, May 2008: A great big thank you is in order for all your help in our efforts to provide aid in the face of the ongoing suffering, death, and destruction in Burma. We have closed the site to new donations, as we must now get the money into the hands of the folks at ShelterBox, who continue to send aid in and are making a difference.
77 people (and organizations) rose to the challenge, and in total (net of fees), we raised $13,547.81!
We received donations from Canadians, Germans, Austrians, Australians, Americans, British, Dutch, Japanese, and Thai people.
We received donations from Rotary Clubs in Canada, as well as here in Thailand.
We received media attention from Canada, the UK, Sydney, and Germany.
And most importantly, we received the support of those who know us, and even those who don’t.
Our donors will be kept apprised of the news as the donation process continues along. We are busy at work behind the scenes completing this mammoth project.
Thank you again. Without you, we would not have been able to make such a difference to the victims of Cyclone Nargis, which has ravaged a nation, and whose victims are still suffering.
