First of all, I want to thank each and every one of you for your support! Those of you who offered and bid, those of you who linked people here, and those of you who put in a good word for us when we needed it the most. As I'm not the mod in charge of keeping stats, I can't give an accurate total of how much money the community has raised so far, but I assure you it's a fair chunk of change and those along the Gulf Coast are very grateful to have it.
Thank you so much for helping our beautiful country! ;~;
As you all know, we have just completed the last set of auctions. (If you haven't confirmed your donation with us yet, please do so as soon as possible!) Our community has run its course, the leak has been successfully plugged, and we have achieved much of what we set out to do. Now, it's time to pass the torch. If you still have room in your hearts, time on your hands, and a penchant for bidding on fandom items, please help_pakistan
According to last week's reports from the Associated Press:
The number of people suffering from the massive floods in Pakistan could exceed 13 million — more than the combined total of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the 2005 Kashmir earthquake and the 2010 Haiti earthquake, the United Nations said Monday.
The death toll in each of those three disasters was much higher than the 1,500 people killed so far in the floods that first hit Pakistan two weeks ago. But the U.N. estimates that 13.8 million people have been affected — over 2 million more than the other disasters combined.
Ladies and gentlemen, there's still work to be done and love to be given. Let's all lend a hand to our brothers in Pakistan! ♥
ETA: I've been told we've raised something like $5500 in total as of right now. Way to go, team!
