Default Re: TE Calendar/Book for Tsunami Victims?

have you identified or do you have any NGOs oe other organisation in mind that you plan on working with or contributing the funds to??
if not then.. claude has the address of one organistation called action aid on his intro. i'm sure this organisation exists in sri lanka, thailand and other affected places

i think he was sponsoring a child in tamil nadu (one of the worst affected regions) .. maybe that organisation can be looked into..
also perhaps... if you do go ahead with the calendar.. then you should decide on how to use the funds.. whether to just contribute the money in a general fund.. or to use it for a specific purpose such as sponsoring a family or to use it to buy food or clothings etc..
you should just keep in mind that a lot of bureaucracy exists in the south asian countries especially..
when it comes to government aid.. a lot of times the funds donot get tranferred down to the affected people completely...


if i can be of any help please let me know
