As promised, we have put down the list of all donations recieved.
In terms of INR, we have recieved Rs, 40,300/-
Of these, one member will be putting in a cheque of Rs. 2000/- tonight and another member has pledged Rs. 2500/- but this money has not yet been recieved due to reasons unknown.
Thus, in INR, the total contribution should, after tonight, stand at Rs. 42,300/ and hopefully at Rs. 45,300/- after the money promised by the 2nd member comes in
Donations recieved through Paypal are a whopping USD 1500/-
One member in particular, when he noticed the target was falling short of USD 75 from USD 1000/- not only pledged the amount but managed to bring in an aditional USD 500/-. Believe me when i tell you this, you will all be shocked when you hear who this member is, but as everyone has requested anonimity, we will keep it that way.
There is yet another member who is not contributing to the cause directly, but is personally, directly, helping out the poor in Ahemdabad in his own way, and we salute his efforts too. This member is still very young and is probably not earning a lot, but is still making sacrifices in his lifestyle to help, one less fortunate
But, and this is the most important part, the money has been recieved in almost equal measures from both the Abde and the Reformist camps.
This only goes to show that, charity does not recognise creed, caste, religion or ideologies.
Imagine that if through this topic, on a site as this, Abde's and Reformists have come together, all i can say then, is that there is still hope.
Ramazan will be upon us in another 2 day. All i can say is that now is the time to help, if you havent yet.
Believe us, even just Rs. 100/- will atleast buy a packet of oil and 1kg of sugar for a poor family.
