    Hi Guys: if you have a job, probbaly you can try to get donation support form your employer.

    I distribute the email within my company and the general manager is willing to organize staff to contribute money/medicine/cloth….

    Only little effort can help many victims in the earthquack!!

    Is this the time for the Prime Minister to engage himself in photo opportunities? This morning on one of the news channels, he was seen happily accepting cheques from various organization heads. Mr. Prime Minister there are hundreds and thousands of Pakistani citizens all over the country who are doing volunteer work. They are not merely signing a donation cheque but are taking time out from their work and schools to gather as much aid and material to supply to the devastated. They are spending hours of their time to help the needy.

    These individuals need your support and thank you. Come over to Karachi and see the mammoth efforts put in by the citizens at the PAF base and countless other centers. These individuals are spending hours to organize relief efforts, not taking a few seconds to sign a cheque. Meet these volunteers, speak to them and appreciate all the work that they have put in.
